    I just found a relatively new cloud storage app called Copy.


    They are giving away 20GB (15Gb + 5GB for using the referral link) to new users. I'm a pretty avid Dropbox user so I always end up comparing things with them. So far I've been really pleased with Copy. There isn't anything it won't do that Dropbox does. I also think I may actually like their mobile app better than Dropbox's and you earn 5gb per referral without limit on referrals.

    Some great features:
    - 20GB OF FREE SPACE FOR LIFE! Thats way more than any of the other guys are offering in their free tiers. And this isn't temporary space like you'd get with other promos from Dropbox.
    - NO FILESIZE LIMITS. Some of the others I've tried (I'm looking at you Box) give you tons of free space but then cap you at 200mb or less file size limits. I uploaded a 1GB file as a test and it took it without complaints.
    - Multi-platform. They have a desktop sync app for Windows, Mac, and Linux and have Android and iOS mobile apps.
    - 5GB per referral you have sign up with no referrals limit! Compared to the others, I could only find 1 that gave 1GB free space per referral. (Note - it says on their website this is only going to be for a limited time so I imagine they will eventually lower it to 1GB or something)


    Enjoy your new free 20 Gb cloud storage!


    Have fun!

    I'm up to 50gb with mine.
    It's slower on their end than Dropbox or Box at uploads and downloads but is still very reliable.
    Fwiw, Box had eliminated the file size limit now. I've got 50gb free with them also.

    I am using 401.3 MB used of 60 GB :) The good thing in Copy is that you have all that dropbox offers and a few features more, beyond the unlimited storage.
    I also have accounts at Box, Mediafire, Mega.. but none of these servers offers a good desktop front-end, with features we found in dropbox and now in copy.
    For these reasons I am enjoying pretty much this new service ;)

    All the best

    oh, I just reached 70gb! :) And for free! :) By the way, I use Debian as my daily drive OS and I could install the Copy App with no problem. Quite fast and simple.
    Here is a quick guide for those how uses Debian or Debian based to get Copy running:

    1- download copy from website copy.com
    2- extract it contents
    CODE: SELECT ALL
    tar -xvf copy_[hit tab]


    3- move it to /opt/ folder
    CODE: SELECT ALL
    sudo mv copy/ /opt/copy


    4- optional - I like to download a icon too.
    https://www.copy.com/include/images/images-std/about-copycrane.png?v=jenkins-Copy_Web_Production-312
    download it and copy it to /opt/copy/, change its name to logo.png
    5- create a ln for use a command
    CODE: SELECT ALL
    sudo ln -s /opt/copy/x86/CopyAgent /usr/bin/copy_agent




    for 64bit use


    CODE: SELECT ALL
    sudo ln -s /opt/copy/x86_64/CopyAgent /usr/bin/copy_agent




    6- create links
    CODE: SELECT ALL
    sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/copy.desktop




    and put this content on it:


    CODE: SELECT ALL
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=Copy
    GenericName=File Synchronizer
    Comment=Sync your files across computers and to the web
    Exec=copy_agent
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Icon=/opt/copy/logo.png
    Categories=Network;FileTransfer;
    StartupNotify=false




    now its just insert the copy_agent command on your startup applications:
    sudo nano /etc/rc.local


    add copy_agent before the exit0

    Have fun!
