1TB Backup Storage from mail.ru (anyone used?)

edited January 2014 in General

Hello,

I found that mail.ru is offering 1TB of cloud file storage. Have anyone used this before?

The URL is: https://cloud.mail.ru/promo/
It looks like you need to download and install their application on your Windows/Linux or mobile device.

Thanks.

  • where's their server located?

    Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)

    I believe is in Russia.

    They also operate their own ASN: http://bgp.he.net/AS47764

  • Not using/registered till now! But maybe...

    Anyone selling Blesta Owned Lifetime Under $250? | Regards.

  • Tried it just now. Signed up for mail, downloaded the Android app (which thankfully has English translation built in), and received my 1 TB free.

    The app is pretty nice, compared to Dropbox. Has generation of public links etc.

  • If some of these companies had a linux uploader like Copy, life would be great and I could store backups forever :)

  • I love their website. :D

  • Do they have an API?

    This signature wasted 121 bytes of your data allocation.

  • AFAIK, they also provide webdav access https://webdav.cloud.mail.ru

  • you can also get 1tb from yun.baidu.com or 36tb at yunpan.cn

  • Tammy said: 36tb at yunpan.cn

    Those are probably "Chinese TB", which equals some MB in real life.

  • Tried registering, but it says "Выберите город из списка" or "Select a city from the list".

    There is no list of cities!

    I have 3TB in yun.baidu.com,I try to backup my data to it via API but I found that it is too slow to do that,just 150+kb/s......

    @dazedandconfused what did you entered as username? I tried [email protected] and just name but I always get 403 forbidden. Using davfs.

  • I'.m using their service and I think it's pretty good. The Up- and Downloads are okay and the interface is also nice

    Yandex Disk has an API but not 1TB storage. Been using it for couple of months, it's good. It has an English interface too.

    I've never used access via webdav, tbh, so unfortunately I can't help you with that issue.

    Please report if you figure out how to log in. I may be interested then too. It's nothing easier than quick pushing some files from vps to cloud storage via webdav (if there would be just command-line client like Cadaver capable to push folders, but that's the different story...).

    Yandex.Disc have both these features:
    Text-based client for linux
    WebDAV access

    P.S. Asked Mail.ru via Twitter about WebDAV access, will post here if I get any reply.

    AFAIK WebDav in the stage of development here at this moment.

    It seems that webDAV was working for some time ( e.g. ), but then it was disabled.

    You could uploud to yun.baidu.com via http://www.oott123.com/bpcs_uploader/
    this is command line version

  • Awesome! And I may even learn some Russian on the way ;-)

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

  • anyone have succeeded login with webdav?

  • dragz said: anyone have succeeded login with webdav?

    Fast googling shows that they disabled it, dunno why :(.

  • I have various large storage solutions through these places. TenCent gave away 10tb. I just picked up the 1tb from mail.ru. QVIVO gave away unlimited for a while, but it's for media files only, under 2gb. Hive.IM is still off line going from beta to full service.

    My issue is how to use them and organize them.

  • @dazedandconfused said:

    Just install the desktop app. It's a requirement to get the 1TB anyway. Or install any of their other apps.

  • I have read that webdav was there and it was test, they say it will be up soon, so lets hope it wont last long till they enable this option.

  • mpkossen said: Awesome! And I may even learn some Russian on the way ;-)

    IMHO, Russian is one of the most beautiful languages in the world. :)

    I'd like to use [email protected] for taking automatic backups from my WD MyBook Live, so WebDAV or headless client would be really, really good ^^.

    @dazedandconfused said: ... headless client would be really, really good ^^.

    Just tried to do the same thing and got it to work (a bit) on my server.

    You only need the GUI once to login and mark some folder that needs to be synced.

    That info is saved in ~/.Mail.Ru_Cloud. That holds your account name, the folder to sync and an encrypted version of the password. There is also another (empty) file .Mail.Ru_Cloud-username1. I'm not sure what that is for.

    I ran the cloud application (with the GUI) on my desktop linux and copied over these files to my home directory on a server, changed the folder name to something else and ran the cloud application on the (headless) server. That failed because it did not find a DISPLAY.

    But running it with a very small Xvfb display worked fine. So I ran it like this:

      Xvfb :11 -screen 0 1x1x8 &
      DISPLAY=:11 ./cloud &
    

    That seems to be working fine.

    I'm not too sure about the usefulness though. It only syncs an existing folder. I don't see how I could use that as a backup mechanism.

  • got mine, thanks

  • I've test this backup server, so far I'm happy with them. Still in progress uploading 20 gb data

    Well, their answer was:
    "webDAV will be available when we release that feature, for the time being it's in test mode. No ETA".

  • Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)

  • Some details about 1TB from Mail.ru after more than 1 year of using:

    1) the download/upload speed is not limited. I have a 30 Mbps bandwidth which is fully used when I download/upload something to Mail.ru cloud

    2) you can use a browser to download or upload something. There is no need to install their software. The maximum size of the file you can upload using a browser is 2 GB.

    3) you will not have to pay the company for the storage never! Free for life!

    4) you can tie you mobile phone number to the account for the security reasons and any changes to the account will be possible just using the sms-codes to that number

    5) the interface is in English

    You can test download speed using these links:

    192MB 75MB 9MB map

    Please, let us know the speed you obtained, and maybe your country.

    I have new Mail.ru accounts with 1 TB space which were never used.
    If you want one, please, contact me at 1024cloud(dog)gmail.com I can change them for something interesting.

    Anyone knows some great deals in the western world right now? I can only find chinese cloud storage with crazy amounts of space, but the speed is too low to actually use it.

    Best would be if it's also accessable via WebDAV or any other non-proprietary protocol :)
