Just saw this, if your looking for a replacement to the now lack of Swiss online storage lockers, MEGA is something you can look into.  50GB for free, and 4 TB plans... just saying.  In anycase there is Linux distros supported now.

good luck

I like Mega.co.nz (and was a huge MegaUpload fan), but I don't use their site because I always get terrible upload speeds (eg: 11kbps). It's nice to see they're supporting Linux.

Is Kim dotcom involved in this?

 

Yes, I believe so. It was reported that he opened another storage site. Here's some information. 

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega_(service)

 

You can see the link to the right that leads directly to his site, beneath "MEGA, Ltd." details. 

 

Gets interesting, the members are the same.  Hanna Ni (Support Assistant) & Judy Fang (Accountant) are associated with both, there may be others, but those two I seen on Kim Dotcom's site & the one posted by the OP. 

OP's About Us First:

 

https://mega.co.nz/#about

 

Kim Dotcom's About Us:

 

https://mega.co.nz/#about

 

You may have to visit the "About Us" from each site, looks like the same link for both that I posted above. 

 

I was going to use the storage a couple of weeks back, but after careful thought, decided not to because of Dotcom's involvement. Not because I'm judging him (innocent until proven guilty), but the NSA thing & all. US citizens that uses the service may become spied upon, I just don't want to be involved. Several of his associates have been charged with crimes, whom are also innocent until proven guilty. 

 

Last month, I was looking for a driver for a Dell Optiplex 740, and was directed to the site for downloading, but declined the download, not knowing what was in it. I clearly recall that was the site, the option to join & all was there.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
