Copy.com, one of my most used cloud storage apart from Google Drive and Owncloud has announced via pop-up notifications on their page that on May 1st, 2016 they will be shutting down the popular service.
We are announcing today that the Copy and CudaDrive services will be discontinued on May 1, 2016.
Copy and CudaDrive have provided easy-to-use cloud file services and sharing functionality to millions of users the past 4+ years. However, as our business focus has shifted, we had to make the difficult decision to discontinue the Copy and CudaDrive services and allocate those resources elsewhere. For more information on this decision, please view the blog post from Rod Mathews our VP & GM, Storage Business.
We know this comes as disappointing news to our users, but rest assured that we will do everything we can to take care of each of you in the manner for which Barracuda is known. We have partnered with Mover to make migrating your data to another service as easy as possible and have created a step by step guide that walks you through the process of moving your data to a local hard drive or another cloud storage solution.
If you are on a paid subscription for either Copy or CudaDrive, please keep an eye out in the coming days for an email with more detailed information on your options. For additional information, please visit our FAQ page.
Thank you to everyone for your support.
All the best,
The Copy & CudaDrive Team
Some people that I know have close to 500GB from referrals, which I imagine they’re looking to migrate that to other cloud storage. This is why I have my files stored in multiple cloud storage and only backed them online as a backup. I guess now I too need to start hunting for a worthy replacements. Some recommendations* are:
- MEGA: 50 Gb free
- pCloud: 10 Gb free
- Box: 10 Gb free (250 Mb file size limit)
- Dropbox: 2 Gb free
- Spider Oak: 2Gb free
