Cloud Backup and Storage Reviews

  • Livedrive

    Livedrive
    On the surface Livedrive appears to offer a decent backup service that is easy to use. Unfortunately it is only on the surface, the service lacks the ability to add a private encryption key, charges to much for basic backup, and then makes it confusing to choose what plan and features you need all in an effort to make sure you pay the most you can actually pay. Add to that the need to give them a credit card to even trial the service and call a UK number to cancel Livedrive adds up to a service you should just avoid. The headaches are not worth the cost of this service.
  • Carbonite

    Carbonite
    Carbonite has been around since 2005, and offers a solid cloud backup service for users. Certainly the fact that they have been around for 15 years shows that they are serious about being around for the long haul. If all you need is to backup one computer with mostly photos and office documents then Carbonite might be perfect for you.
  • Waistra Unlimited Cloud Storage

    Waistra Unlimited Cloud Storage
    The app offers some interesting features including:
    • Free cloud storage - unlimited free cloud storage.
    • Streaming support - simple to use full screen stream player.
    • Unlimited storage - there is no limit to upload files.
    • Secure - secured by military grade 256 bit encryption method.
    However this app and service have some serious issues and I would recommend anyone thinking of using it steer clear.
  • Blink Camera

    Blink Camera
    Blink cameras offer an easy to use home security camera system that is easy to setup, use and mount pretty much anywhere. The XT cameras are weatherproof and function well outdoors even in cold. Free cloud storage is an added bonus and the iOS and Android apps are easy to use and manage your cloud storage and cameras.
  • Koofr

    Koofr
    Koofr offers some interesting features can help you tie together your could storage services by helping you search the other services you have accounts with. The ability to create your own private cloud storage for your own devices easily is a nice way to help access files without having to rely or upload files to Koofr.
  • pCloud

    pCloud
    pCloud offers an affordable, unique cloud storage and sync service that people should consider. The option to purchase lifetime plans makes the service even more affordable in the long run. pCloud is also one of a few services offering decent apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS allowing you easy access to your files no matter what device you are using.
  • Multcloud

    Multcloud
    Allows you to manage, transfer and sync files and folders easily between cloud storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive and long list of others. Questions about their ownership being located in China does cause some concern and should be considered before trusting this service and company with sensitive data.
  • Sync.com

    Sync.com
    Offers an easy to use, and most important, secure cloud storage service. Along with desktop apps there are also Android and iOS apps available to allow for easy access to your files from pretty much anywhere.
  • Storj

    Storj
    End to end encrypted cloud storage using peer to peer blockchain technology. It could very well be the future of cloud storage, content delivery networks and backup. A future where only you have access to your data and it is spread out over a peer to peer network that is made up of hard drive space rented from other users on the network. Storj has made that future available today, but they do have room to grow as far as friendly end user applications. Storj certainly appears to be leading in the race with a usable distributed cloud storage network.
  • Zoolz Intelligent Home

    Zoolz Intelligent Home
    If you are looking for a decent Android backup service Zoolz might be worth a try. In my Windows testing I was unable to actually backup any files. This makes the service useless for computer backup. The application would run the backup job but no files would actually be sent up to the service. After trying over multiple days I eventually gave up.
