Copy – The New Kid In Town That Could Take The Cloud Storage Crown
Dropbox has a new contender for the cloud storage crown, a system that goes by the name of Copy. Copy offers pretty much all the same functionality as Dropbox, here is a list of some of those features:
- File versioning
- The ability to restore deleted files
- Sharing of files and folders
- Public sharing by way of download links
- A referral system
- Client available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android & iOS
So why do I need to change?
Well, you know how Dropbox will give you 2GB for free, then 500MB for each referral? Well, Copy have taken this one step further. You see, not only do you get 5GB of free space when you sign up, but Copy will also give you a hugeÂ 5GB of free storage for everyÂ referral.Â This means that straight off the bat, if you use this referral link you will get 10GB of free cloud storage with Copy. Not only that, but when you refer moreÂ friends, you both get 5GB!
This is only for a limited time as Copy is a new service and this offer is to get the word out. There is no sign of when this will end, and from what I can see there are no limits to the amount of storage you can accumulate. So make sure you get the word out and build up as many ofÂ thoseÂ referrals as you can before time runs out.
However, if you do run out of time then it’s not a huge problem as Copy offer upgrade packages of 250GB and 500GB which cost $9.99/month and $14.99/month respectively. Considering that Dropbox only offer 100GB for $9.99/month, and a 500GB account will set you back a whopping $49.99/month this is a real bargain!
I’m testing Copy with a 1GB folder full of over 200 files. It’s finished uploading quickly and hasn’t missed a single file. I’ve also changed a few files and deleted some to test the versioning and un-delete functionality which it all works perfectly. Copy really is a fantastic alternative to Dropbox so I would strongly consider referring as many friends as possible,Â getting your free cloud storage up and switching ASAP!
