Let’s be honest, digital file sizes are getting quite massive. The newest breed of high megapixel dSLRs often shell out a single RAW (you do shoot in RAW, right?) file that can exceed the attachment size of popular e-mail services.
So you need a way to move images around efficiently. Dropbox is the popular choice, but many stay within the free service which only gives you a measly 2 GB of space. Well there is a new cloud storage company on the scene called Copy, and their debut offerings are far beyond the current competition.
With a similar interface including folder management, simple e-mail and link sharing, and a drag and drop interface, Copy offers users a free 15 GB account. The pricing for the larger storage accounts beats dropbox as well. Finally, if you can get some friends to join, you can pile up your free storage with 5 GB per referral!
But I have saved the best for last. Utilizing a system coined “fair storage”, Copy splits the shared folder space between the amount of users with access to the folder. When you share a 2GB folder with 5 people on Dropbox, all 6 members soak up 2GB of their subscription. This really doesn’t make sense considering it is still only taking up 2GB of space on Dropbox’s storage. Copy provides an equal distribution, so that same 2GB folder would only take up .3 GB per person in the same scenario.
So if you feel like getting a little more space for your digital endeavors, follow this link and get a bonus 5 GB (20 GB total) for starting up. https://copy.com?r=uqco0M
