Want 100GB Of Free Cloud-Based Storage? 7 years 3 months ago Bixler

I'm number 64185 in line.

Thanks for the heads-up; 65685 now.

As for people thinking the numbers are "suspicious": If it's a waiting list, the numbers might well decrease now and then, if they are working down the list faster than new people are added to it. My number doesn't mean I am the 65685th person to sign up, but merely that right now 65685 people are waiting to be admitted, me being the last of them.

Hate to be pessimistic but does this mean that they could inform any potential free subscriber that the places are now all filled but that they could proceed for a "reduced special offer" fee, should they so desire? I currently have 71,742 people in front of me in the queue but have no idea where I'm situated overall. At the end of the day, if I'm successful it's cost me nothing. If I'm unsuccessful, the same applies!

Why bother signing up and waiting when one can have 50 GB free at Adrive, no queue, right away?

view
Want 100GB Of Free Cloud-Based Storage? 7 years 3 months ago EvaM

For what it's worth, I'm in the exact same place in the queue as I was when I commented yesterday, and more than 7290 people are behind me - this might give you a rough estimate at the speed it's going both with people being added to the queue and people getting in. From those numbers, I don't think the free spaces can be gone yet, but the lack of progress makes me wonder at what they are doing.

I suppose trying to sing up is futile for sometime, because I signed up to gain 100 gb storage, nearly 10 days ago.
since that time no mail did I receive. Should you succeed in anyway, please let me know it.

I got not available in your region as well and I'm in the US Virgins.

And Happpy Pesach - Passover - to anyone who celebrates it. And Divali just a couple of days past, so to all Hindus, a shout-out, Happy Divali. To Christians, a Happy Easter. But it isn't a Christian world, its a world of people of all sorts of faiths and like me, none at all!

Reply: OOPS! You have a Mac we are working 24/7 to make this available for Macs etc. expect available April 13, **--rough quote as I didn't copy it verbatim.

It offered a sign up for a waiting list for the waiting list but clicking on it produced THE VOID. THE BLACK HOLE. As an old lady, I don't know the latest terminology for this and can't keep up but plan to add this sign up to my Last Will and Testament if I ever get an official place.

But as Gizmo notes why not keep trying? I'll follow this to find out if there is ever a reason not to keep trying.

I got Zoolz immediately after downloading StickyPass. I tried to upload just one folder to Zoolz and it immediately slowed my HP 2G laptop to half-a-crawl. Zoolz also required a waiting period of 3-5 days to retrieve a file. I say skip it, even without a waiting period to sign-up.

You have to scroll down and look for the "Personal Basic (FREE 50GB)" option. https://www.adrive.com/login/signup I actually have two accounts there by accident and have 100GB total storage. Have had them for about 5 years now and never have had an issue. They did take away some features from the Basic users a while back. view

Thanks a lot for the referral to ADrive. I just have a few questions...

How invasive are the ads? I mean, do they get in the way of the smartphone app?

And how much email do they send you? Would you use SpamGourmet for ADrive Personal Free or do you need a "real" email account?

No, I went through the regular link & when that didn't work, I poked around some more & got to that "free trial" link...

When I hover over the "sign-up" link for the free 100GB, it turns to a hand, but isn't clickable.

I read through the rest of these replies here & see it won't work for Mac. I'm on Linux Mint- so I'm probably out, too.

Oh well, I'd rather run Linux w/o zoolz vs. having zoolz & putting up with MS... ;)

view
Want 100GB Of Free Cloud-Based Storage? 7 years 3 months ago mr6n8 I have not used my Smartphone with ADrive yet. Just got the phone a few months back and since I am at home, I just copy over from my PC. So, I do not know about the ads with that. On the site, since I use Firefox with AdBlockPlus, I do not see any ads. I have not received any email at all. It has been years since I opened it, but there might have been a confirmation email. Other than that, I completely forgot I had one account there when I opened the second as I had never had email from them. So no spam at all. view

>> Would you use SpamGourmet for ADrive Personal Free or do you need a "real" email account?
In my opinion you use spamgourmet for everything or you don't use it at all. (FYI: In the many years I use spamgourmet I've never encountered a service that didn't accept my spamgourmet e-mailaddresses)

i finally found the perfect personal cloud based storage. once i cleared the clutter caused by "cloud based" storage companies i realized, i've got more used mb's, network adapters, cpu's and hard drives than i could ever fill up with my irreplaceable data. it's a lot faster than uploading to some server, no waiting to get the ok to download what i need and a lot more secure behind my rogers and spencer .44 and my trained attack chihuahua plus it only runs when i tell it to run (very cost effective) since i put that attack dog to protecting my lan, i now have several honeypots setting out trying to lure some germs into my network. i'll bet the clown servers don't openly invite "guest" in.

Copy.com is a new Dropbox-like cloud that gives away 5 GB. You can also get an additional 5 GB per friend who signs up. Or enemy, doesn't matter; they get the 5 GB too.

I'm up to 25 GB. Here's my link, so you can get your extra 5 GB:

I went to Zoolz and tried to sign up, and these are the lies Zoolz told me:

"Linux Soon

Oops! We've noticed that you are on a Mac, we are working 24/7 to release it. It will be out April 30, 2013"

...along with a frowning "Mac" icon. I question if they are truly working 24/7.

Well, I went to a SugarSync features request forum where crowds of Linux users gather to complain fruitlessly about no support, and posted my referral link to Copy.com (where I get 5 GB for each referral). So, I'm up to 125 GB on Copy.com. I uploaded two hours of home movies and due to the slow upload speeds of our cable, it took all night. But at least it works great on Linux, like UbuntuOne and Dropbox.

Adrive tries to tantalize with "if only you upgrade to premium"
I am sticking with Dropbox and Mediafire

HOWEVER - there is a new unlimited storage site called Putlocker
http://www.putlocker.com/
It has FTP which has been down for a couple of day. Upload speeds are good to excellent, depending on the time of day. It is more of a link site than a backup storage solution

Zoolz must have gotten their million free users, because now they're pay-only, and aimed at business users. And no mention of Linux client. Maybe they're still "working on it 24/7".
