I've bee trying to find the perfect online storage platform for some time now. At the moment, I'm trying Copy.com, a relatively new service from Barracuda Networks. Barracuda is well known for anti-spam security systems. I've been using Copy for around six months now and I like it. The UI is a clean three column browser, similar to the Mac's Finder or MS Explorer and is more logically designed than Dropbox. You always know which folder or files you are accessing.
The first thing you notice when you try Copy is their referral system. Because they are still relatively unknown in this segment, they want to make sure that everybody tries Copy. To do so they had the brilliant idea of giving away a 15 GB free account, and if you register through a referral link (like this one) you can get 20 GB of free space. But the good part doesn’t stop here, for each referred person that registers an account through your own referral link, Copy credits you 5 GB of additional space, once that person validates their email address and installs the client software. For the moment, this offer is unlimited - there is no limit to the amount of space you can get for free, so take advantage now if you need online storage.
Copy has a couple of specifications that set it apart from other solutions:
What about paid accounts? Fair prices! The first 20 GB via a referral link (like this one) are free. If more space is needed, you can upgrade to Pro account with 250 GB of space for USD 10 a month or USD 99 a year or a 500 GB account for USD 14,99 a month or USD 149 a year.
Downsides? I found that uploading files to Copy is sometimes a little slower than to Dropbox, but that may be due to the poor internet connections where I live.
Try Copy now — you can never have enough online storage.
