    Free 100GB cloud backup 19th May 17 at 10:07 PM
    I've just backed up just over 25GB to Zoolz cloud storage and so far so good
    Zoolz is currently giving 100GB storage free for life, don't know if it's useful to anyone.
    Here is the link...

    They must be crossing their fingers that they dont get many people uploading 100GB.

    3 million users worldwide? Something wrong with their figures? Or do barely any of these 3 million users pay them any money?

    Some online reviews suggest that one good feature is it prevents video piracy by screening for filenames that indicate torrent use. Any naughty subscribers can have their accounts closed, but there's nothing to fear for ordinary users.

    what about myholidayvideo.zip

    Or just user a generic number for the filename or the IMDB ID number for that movie?

    All I saw was an App, to upload from PC you need a vault, oh what a surprise it is an upsell.

    No thanks.

    I can go create accounts on Mega.nz at 50gb at a time just for an email address, I would not rely on it by itself but as part of a number of strategies.
    Thanks, don't you just hate people with sigs !

    When I tried to backup it wouldn't recognise my login details so I clicked register rather than logon and used the same email address and password that I used initially. (Maybe that's the point I accidentally registered for their 50GB paid for service).

    At the bottom of the Zoolz Dashboard it shows both Cloud Instant Storage (50GB), which I shall ignore and Cold Storage (100GB) to which I have uploaded a small amount for test purposes.

    I will wait till the 14 days is up until I upload lots more data just in case I lose my account.
