8GB not enough? Want 50GB?

October 15th, 2011 No comments

Dropbox is one of my favorite tools to manage shared stuff – and I was happy with 8GB for free… 2GB with the Basic Account type and 6GB when promoting dropbox to friends. Currently I own 5.25GB there.

But these days there came BOX.NET to my recognition – they through 50GB to you for free!

How to get it? Really easy going – just download and install the iOS App here and create a free account within the next 48 days.

Dropbox – I’ll give it a try

August 29th, 2009 No comments

DropboxDropbox claims to get rid of different storage locations for data by hosting the data on the web and synching it via little apps automatically.

There are three basic pricing models available:

Basic…..2GB ………. free of charge
Pro 50…..50GB …… $ 9,99 / month
Pro 100….100GB … $ 19,99 / month

and one possibility to expand the Basic model:
refer the service to your friends and get extra space for free…

Installtion on the Mac:
Easy and fast – just download the app and move it from the diskimage to your application folder; start the application and follow the few steps for setup. I’ve choosen the ‘Basic’ version for free.
The sync app is also available for Windows and Linux

A dropbox folder was created automatically and is shown up in your MacOS X navigation pane of the Finder-Windows. Within the Dropbox folder two additional folders have been created: Pictures and Public – and for sure you are able to create addtional folders…

Putting files into these folders are recognized by the Dropbox app which is running in the background – little icon with configuration and information menus. Synchronizing runs really fast and smooth 🙂

I’ll test the system now during the next weeks and will come back later with an review and the experiences I’ve made.
