I did the same then realized it says you need to link your one drive by click the 'start' then you will get 50GB, I have done it.
I created a account with my outlook email and the 50 gig was added automatically

How would you rate Mega as compared to onedrive and also pcloud, I've never heard of thepcloud. Is it a reliable site?

I've only used Onedrive so wondering how they'd compare regarding speed of uploading and reliabliltiy in general?

First I've read about pCloud. But anyway, Mega's great the files are stored forever (unless you receive a copyright claim which they remove and that's that) and the speeds are really fast too.

www.abelhas.pt is going strong too -- this is a hosting website that also keeps files permanently, exceptional speeds too and unlimited bandwidth. Keep in mind, this is a Portuguese hosting website so not available in English but it's pretty standard stuff as to how to get around it anyway (Google could help out translating it).
Thanks have my 50Gb awesome

Thanks, can anyone say how pcloud compares to these others then?
Hmmm, Norton 360 flagging it as suspicious; any advice?

Has Norton been any good for 20 years? I thought it was just PCWorld tried to charge £30 quid for to computer novices?

Dunno. I just signed up for pCloud today.
Thanks buddy. You can never have enough cloud storage
Thank you
Thank you:)
you can actually unlink your onedrive account after you've got the full 50gb allowance and it doesn't revert to the standard allowance.

it's worth clicking the "get more space" option when you sign in as there are some easy steps to get a few more gig - you can install the desktop client, upload some files e.t.c... and if you complete all the steps in the "get free space" section, you get an extra 3gb - although the "get started with pcloud basics" doesn't seem to work, which is convenient

backing up facebook and instagram photos (if you have them) will also get you an extra 1gb
Is anyone having issues backing up from Drop Box or One Drive... I set the account access ok.. then got to run a backup.. and it just sits there with status Waiting. I stop the job.. restart and still the same. I have verified my email and check the account details... strange...

i couldn't get anything to back up at all - i set it to back up my facebook and instagram photos just for the extra space, but nothing worked - it kept offering me the chance to restart the backup but still did nothing.

hopefully it'll start working as i can see it being quite handy for a backup solution as it appears to schedule the backups automatically, so it could well be a case of set it and forget it.

Mine have been stuck on the status of 'Waiting' since yesterday.
I have now contacted Support.. will update you when I get an answer.
I got a reply...

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us.

Please note that you have to wait for a while after you start the backup process.
Since many users are backing up their OneDrive accounts, this may take some time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
I can appreciate that, but I suppose it's not the best start to using a new service
wants to install device software as part of the desktop install...? any reasons why this is needed ? hmmm
plus 500 MB when you link facebook
Thanks for the info OP.

I set up facebook and picasa backup for the extra 2x 500mb storage space. Facebook still says waiting but it's managed to copy over picasa content already.

Post a link to some newly established, unknown cloud storage, and everyone signs up, uploads data and links it to FB for a puny 500MB...

i do have similar concerns... not sure what you can do about this other than not use the service... which is a shame.
A really nice feature of Pcloud is that you can share an upload link for a folder and collect files from your friends, etc. really easily without them having to register.
Just tried it, seems to work fine with no issues yet
im skeptical but i signed up an account with onedrive and then signed up to pcloud and then linked them together, so non of my personal info was given and i have the 50gb account now so that if in future i decide all is well with this company then i can use it
good find OP heat added
