    They are betting on the avg user not coming from /r/datahoarder.

    You can use the browser version. No need to download the software if it's for Browser upload storage. I prefer Koofr though ;)

    Won't be too soon, as I am happy with Koofr :P

    Is there a similar deal to this that is actually worth it?

    It is always hard to say what something is worth because everyone has different priorities and shares a different opinion about some things. For me a "Lifetime Deal" is worth it, once I think I have gotten my moneys worth. Take Koofr 1TB Lifetime for example. I paid 79$ for that and am happy with their stellar experience. If they were to shutdown in 2 years I wouldn't even complain. That's like ~40$/year for 1TB and Koofr connects with GDrive, OneDrive and Dropbox. Most of my VPN LTDs also have paid their worth many times over (compared to what regular big VPN players charge per year). Koofr is still out there on Stacksocial (although more expensive now) ;)

    Wishing I had gotten in on that Koofr deal. Waited too long. Hoping it goes back down to that someday in the future!

    Thank you for the recommendation. I’ll take a look!

    Warning: Degoo is an awful cloud backup service

    I stupidly purchased a 2-year 10TB plan for $99. Sounded like too good a deal to pass up. However, the service is dreadfully slow and not intuitive. I have a 200Mbps upload internet connection. However, even when using “turbo mode”, my uploads are about 12 KILOBYTES per second.

    Windows 10 app doesn't synch properly. Files that you do manage to upload disappear and cannot be downloaded.

    I purchased a life-time 10TB plan for $99. I am now uploading my desktop backup image of 101GB. The speed is constantly around 250Mbps (it is more stable than any other cloud storage service providers I have like google, ms one drive, etc. One thing that took more than usual was preparing to uploading for a big file like this one. I believe it took about 10 minutes or so to prepare to upload a 101GB file ( Is it a security checking). I will let you know if the speed gets slowed or if I encounter any other problems.

    And yes, it has no scheduled backup or sync options. It is purely a simple backup solution with generous storage sizes.

    Yes, you are absolutely right. I downloaded their old download client from CNet (as they do not offer any download client to use recently) and the speed is like from an old modem. You shouldn't use the client. Use your favorite web browser and the speed is very fast.

    This one I am not buying. Like I said, happy with Koofr lifetime deal for 79$ for 1TB. Not all lifetime deals are shit. Koofr is a great service. Not all LTDs last a lifetime but nearly all LTDs I bought so far have lasted their money's worth.

  • What good is 10 TB for lifetime if company closes its service tomorrow viz.hubic , which was better than this.

    Obviously, it's not worth it then. The trick with LTDs is betting on products you can see still being around long enough in the future to get your moneys worth. Most VPN LTDs I have, have been established for several years. Some are resellers of bigger companies I dont see going anywhere soon, either. It's a bet, but with way better odds than in the Casino if you investigate the product you are investing it a bit.

    It is in the US.
    But, the speed went down to only around 3 Mbps when I put in lots of 1 to 2 gig files.

    I really don't get this, why not just buy a portable external hard drive... they are so small this days, you can put it in your back pocket....some come with password protection + 256 bit AES hardware encryption....For me, my data is safe when I have it with me.

    Simplicity I guess. With online backup you can just set it and forget it, you don't have to remember to bring a drive, plug it in and copy a bunch of files.
    Plus, its easy to lose a physical drive. Fire, you get robbed, waterdamage, static electricity...lots of thing can happen to a physical drive, especially if you move it around.

    • with a cloud storage, once the company is sold or goes down, your data is no longer yours, it becomes someone else's. In such scenario, for a very low price, you become a product on the long term. Corporations and governments love private data, just like you do.
    • with a physical drive you hold your data, and nobody else can get it (unless you give it away). If you hold it for backups, there is no point in moving it around, and with a IP68 graded storage (like this), you can have it more resistant (to children for example).

    In conclusion, it depends on your data and you, if you want to share or not.

    Merits and flaws. It all depends on your priorities.
    But, my files are not something mission critical and I am backing up to the cloud from my back up hdd. No worries there.

  • can access as a filesystem mount on linux? network speed?

    Extremely disappointed.

    The speed I saw at 250Mbps for the first file I uploaded was the only instance I was able to get that speed.

    The speed now is around 600 to 800Kbps. I am only uploading a single 12 gig file now. It is faster than a modem speed that we used 25 years ago though.

    I got had by scammer, degoo. I should have listened to those warnings more carefully.
    $99.00 to a garbage can...

    Damn, that sux. Can you try again tomorrow at the same time you got the good speed? Perhaps it also depends on the usage time. I guess, you have the "speed" thing enabled?

    Did you upload via Web browser, or Degoo Client?

    I can download with 7,5 MB/s though.. Which is fine. Video playback also works fine for me.

    Just uploaded at 90 Mbps on the computer I had uploaded the first file from.
    This is still acceptable.

    Uploading at 700Kbps at another computer.
    (I have a back luck uploading from this computer, the same network, just another computer)

    Very strange.

    Do you think Degoo has a prejudice against another computer? :-)

    Most likely not. Maybe a different OS version/driver/setup on the other Computer idk tbh.

    Exactly the same computer. I will try with my laptop and tablets too. Thanks.

    I uploaded a video just as a test, and the playback performance seemed good enough.

    I can't see me paying anything for it though, because the app is poor and just uploading everything via the web browser is annoying.

    That's without considering all the slow reports (they're all over Reddit too).

    It seems they do make it hard to upload files so that you don't use all your space.

  • They throttle you later. Waste of money.

  • The speed problem is only from my other computer (I don't know why)
    Upload speed has been good on my primary computer. On three big file uploads, one with around 230Mbps, another with 95 Mbps, the last with 350 Mbps.
    What I don't like is it takes a long time to prepare to upload. The bigger size the longer. For 100 gig file, it took more than 30 min. to prepare.
    *Degoo android mobile app has some decent rating/download like 4.4+ with 10m+ dl.

    About the big files.. probably sucks but luckily most of my Plex files are smaller than 5-10GB :)

    Maybe by "preparing to download," it means encrypting.
    What is your average upload speed there at Koofr?

    I don't measure it tbh. It just appears to be fast enough. I have 25 Mbits max upload speed from my ISP. My files 1-5GB each (max.) usually upload pretty fast although I dont monitor it but just let it sync like in GDrive folders. Some files are like 10GB but I'm happy, still.

    Pretty sure "preparing to download" means the encryption part. Iirc I read that in their Help FAQ under "slow uploads".

    I really don't get this, why not just buy a portable external hard drive... they are so small this days, you can put it in your back pocket....some come with password protection + 256 bit AES hardware encryption....For me, my data is safe when I have it with me.

    Simplicity I guess. With online backup you can just set it and forget it, you don't have to remember to bring a drive, plug it in and copy a bunch of files.
    Plus, its easy to lose a physical drive. Fire, you get robbed, waterdamage, static electricity...lots of thing can happen to a physical drive, especially if you move it around.

    • with a cloud storage, once the company is sold or goes down, your data is no longer yours, it becomes someone else's. In such scenario, for a very low price, you become a product on the long term. Corporations and governments love private data, just like you do.
    • with a physical drive you hold your data, and nobody else can get it (unless you give it away). If you hold it for backups, there is no point in moving it around, and with a IP68 graded storage (like this), you can have it more resistant (to children for example).

    In conclusion, it depends on your data and you, if you want to share or not.

    • If a company wants my data, they can have it. It's config files and databases, most of the information is available freely from github anyway.

    • The idea of offsite backup is to have it elsewhere, hence, if I backup to a physical drive, I will have to physically move it elsewhere.

  • any coupons around? %50 maybe :)

    50% off 99$ for lifetime? Not sure you'll find one but if you do, by all means, share it.

    I think such companies will allow 10TB as long as you are just allocated like 1,000 inodes and 1MB max filesize upload
