Hi,

Just found this site that offers 100GB of online storage for Free..

It's actually very basic no frills storage space. One big draw back is you can only share links to other registered members, but the storage space is quite generous considering it's free.

www.OziBox.com

The Community online storage cloud Ozibox.com offers 100 GB storage FREE for you to store, sync & share with friends!

The Website:

    Well, there is no real way of publicly sharing content. You can only share links to other ozibox users or personally download the file yourself. The chances of you getting an infringement notice is pretty much nil.

    There is also a "three strikes policy" clause, which I think to be very reasonable..

    Ozibox.com follows a three strikes policy – a user’s account will be terminated and the user permanently barred from Ozibox.com upon a third instance of detection of unauthorized copyrighted content in the account. Please refer to the Repeat Infringer Termination section below (also in our Terms of Use) for a detailed description of our >policy regarding copyright infringement.

    Think of this as more a personal backup solution, more so than file sharing.

    Working Windows Server 2012 R2 on 6GB! Beat that!

    ...but is hosted at OVH...

    "OziBox is an Open Source Cloud"

    Yeah, "the first Community Cloud" is so untrue I immediately lost interest.

    Also, the name..."Supercoders".

    This is an outrage!!.. how dare they offer 100 GB of free storage and use the cheapest hosting provider known to man kind!! I'm appalled!!

    Actually, that reference is to software.. so no Microsoft windows etc.. OVH is providing hardware, not software.

    I actually don't buy into the marketing.. They can call it what they like.. I just want my free storage.

    They used all capitals for NO and YES, so one can just assume they're serious.

    it's a shame really, to see so much negativity, when my intent was to share something positive..

    And all this complaints is from folks who never even bothered to try the service..

    Don't take it personally.. you have to remember LET is a place of scrutiny which is often seen as negativity.. people naturally don't like being ripped off and rather not sign up for a provider that'll waste their time or lose their files.

    Well I don't think anyone is attacking you personally. I mean, you did get 7 thanks so far :-)

    The service does have some goofy claims so it's natural for people to make fun of those.

    I assume it's built using OVH's cloud storage as a backend. Even if it's not, and they're really using a bunch of boxes with local storage, OVH is still pretty clearly "behind" them. In any event, even if they colo'd directly at some carrier-neutral DC/IX, it'd still be a pretty silly claim.

    Compared to the basic premise "please entrust lots of your data to some anonymous people who freely admit the service offered is financially unsustainable", though, it's more laughable than alarming.

    Honestly I took that comment as they prefer to use open source compared to close.. If by your logic, then essentially you're implying they don't use products from multinational co. that would be silly what are they suppose to do make their own hard drives, motherboards, open their own DC?

    Let's not dig too deep into it.. I honestly could not care less about the philosophy they are trying to instill or the community they are trying to create I'm just there for free storage..
