It was fun while it lasted: Barracuda Copy – Copy End-of-Life

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/02/05

Copy had some advantages and disadvantages. For instance, it was better handling long file names, character encodings in filenames and a lot easier to configure over a CNTLM proxy than DropBox, but unlike DropBox didn’t keep history of changes.

Alas no more copy.com as of 20160501: [WayBack] Barracuda Copy – Copy End-of-Life.

They suggest using [WayBackMover with OneDrive as target: [WayBackBarracuda Copy – Moving Your Data from Copy

Note that Mover has many more connectors, including cloud storage ones (Box, Copy, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Yandex.Disk are free):

[WayBack] Connectors • Mover: FTP, Dropbox, Box, GoogleDrive, Copy, Egnyte, Amazon S3, SharePoint, MySQL the list goes on!

For me it means it’s time to think about what kinds of cloud storage I want to use and how to share what data with others at which access level. As I’m already contemplating on how to use ZFS, I now have two storage concepts to think about.

Oh wow. Apparently all S3 buckets are also BitTorrent trackers.

Interesting:

There is no extra charge for use of BitTorrent with Amazon S3. Data transfer via the BitTorrent protocol is metered at the same rate as client/server delivery. To be precise, whenever a downloading BitTorrent client requests a “piece” of an object from the…

Note

You can get torrent only for objects that are less than 5 GB in size.

Microsoft OneDrive for Business modifies files as it syncs | Myce.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/22

Wow: Microsoft OneDrive for Business modifies files as it syncs | Myce.com.

For now Microsoft Cloud Storage is not the place for my data to be.

(Note: OneDrive used to be called SkyDrive)

The only cloud storage that worked for me without too much trouble is Copy.com. My referral there: https://copy.com?r=3NGul6.
