    It looks like the popular application Dropbox has got some competition.



    Let's face it, people like convenience & sharing. Put the two together and you have a winning combination. Dropbox, used by many as a way of conveniently sharing files seems to have just been one upped by Minus, who started out as a photo sharing app has been hard at work re-vamping and updating their software. Providing a whopping 10 gb of online storage space for free and for all kinds of media. They even offer desktop applications for Mac, Windows and Ubuntu. Also with a new revamped Android App.

    Like Dropbox, if someone already using the service sends you a special link — here — you and that user will both receive extra storage space. But where Dropbox only gives both parties an extra 250MB, Minus offers a bonus 1-freakin’-GB. That’s like 300% more free!

    No folder support

    Found out I already have an account and never used it. Well, after installing the client (again) I know why. I can't create folder structures. Sad they have to managed to introduce that feature or have I missed something?


    Cheers,
    Andreas

    Their website and the demo fro John shows you can do folders.

    Help pages: Help - Minus

    you can only have 100 files max in any folder though.

    I'll be happy to have another service on my computer. I'm up to 7 gigs free on my Dropbox and use it SOOOO much, but I halso have 7.75 gigs free from Sugarsync and will be happy to sign up for Minus too. I transfer files back and forth between myself and friends/family, 10 more gigs will be VERY nice.

    Well, since no e-mail address is needed, you can technically sign up for a ton of fake accounts with your own referral link. Also, this is definietly no Dropbox replacement. Useful for a few things, but not like DropBox useful. I'll probably use this to share photos and what not, or for screenshots I post online for things, but that is probably all.
