Minimum 1 Terabyte (TB) Of Free Online Storage Space With Yunio

67
Found 6th Jan 2014
Yunio is a cross-platform cloud storage and sync service offering 1TB of free space on sign-up. No messing about with referrals etc. to get more space. Plus space increases by 1GB for each day you sign in.

It's similar to the likes of Dropbox / SkyDrive / Google Drive but with much more free space, much bigger file upload limits and clients for all major platforms (Windows, Android, Apple and Linux).

This is a Chinese company with storage servers located in China which may be a dealbreaker for some and a benefit for others worried about NSA snooping. However if you don't mind risking the Chinese government having a look at your holiday snaps, it's a lot of storage for nothing.

There are also paid options giving 5TB+ from ~£1 per month (10CNY).

Thanks, I'll register but I will monitor comments to see whether most think this is safe or not.

registered, will be good for an additional backup

Sounds good, maybe too good
but I am tempted. I will keep an
eye on further comments but
thanks for the post in the
meantime.

22.05 Thanks for all the comments
I will stick to the Chinese Restaurant
and not bother with this.

Why not Baidu with 2TB of storage?

no way I'd put my data in China! or America for that fact. or in the Cloud whatsoever!

Registered, I don't want to install the client and the website does not allow the uploading of folders which is quite annoying.

I think I'd trust the Chinese government over the NSA and US government any day of the week. Damn it, that'll be another comment that gets me on yet another list

Wonder what the slowdown die to pipe length is like though. May be fine as a long term backup solution, but less useful for regular data transfers.

Thanks OP!

However I'd like a Cloud Account where I can save folders,files,etc without having to install a client on my PC. I find this insistence of the website to install some vague software a bit unnerving!:|

Wait so. I have to install SOmething to access files upload them If so … Wait so. I have to install SOmething to access files upload them If so that's useless , how can you access the files in other places. Stuff this. Better use drop box or Google drive. Or sky drive. The box 50gb Mega stprgae All that above is around 100gb +



Hang On! I'm trying the other option to check it out!

Non-Chinese terms of service might be nice as well.
I could be agreeing to hand over my first-born or something of that sort.
Thinks... Where do I sign up. :-D

Tried uploading a few things. Taking forever. Sod it I'll not bother. 20 minutes for a handful of MB.

Same here. Tried to upload a larger file twice. Came on as error in uploading.Maybe try sometime tomorrow!

I'd stay well clear of the internet if I were you.

Get mega.co.nz, it's encrypted and free

I like the thought of 1 'Terror-Bites' free......but am a bit frightened about having my door kicked in at 3am in the morning by the Red Guard, and being hauled off, and held without trial, beaten kicked, beaten and then tossed in some Shanghai prison, for having a couple of jpegs of Ai Weiwei's art !

Why not Baidu with 2TB of storage?


Baidu... worst offender of planting Malware and Spyware on your PC, that no matter what you do, seems unable to remove!

Banned

Does anyone know what the file size limit is?

Like most unheard brands, don't put too much trust into them.

The file size limit on the free account is supposed to be 5GB

Probably worth a read of this recent article before uploading all your secrets to the cloud, windowssecrets.com/top…er/

The file size limit on the free account is supposed to be 5GB


and 1.5GB using the web interface

Thanks (_;)

Thanks, interesting read.

Thanks

don't need to be using any cloud services at that scale as I have other backup solutions, but it's still nice to have 1TB to upload god knows what if need be.

I use mega, it's fab!

so you opened the door to 2 chinese takeaways

Can we use this as FTP storage?

reddychvb

Can we use this as FTP storage?

probably not, but I'll be very interested to find out

Website down......awesome!!

I really hope no one actually uses this provider for storing private files. No problem if it's just storage for non important stuff you don't care about.

I use MEGA as already posted above. Your data is encrypted client side (at your end on your pc before it leaves to go to the mega servers) and you hold the encryption keys to your data so only you can decrypt it. I'm not aware of a more secure free online service than that although happy to be told differently.

You're confusing the Way Cinda does things with the way the US would treat you :P

Get mega.co.nz, it's encrypted and free



but you only get 50 gig

With online backup you got to think of

a) how fast can you upload
b) how long will they be around for
c) any future restrictions when they reach their 'free' quota and start charging
