Thanks

I've used it as a cheap online backup in tandem with my physical server backup routine. Ive restored from it when I've had the odd accidental deletion from physical backups and not had any issues. Do I think it will be around forever? No. Is it a good interim service for none critical files alongside a physical backup routine. Absolutely.

Reminds me of the time when I signed up with an ISP called Red Hot Ant about 20 years ago. Paid something silly like £20 or £30 for lifetime access to an 0800 (or was it 0845?) dial up service. At the time many said that it was too good to be true and wouldn't last. They were right!

Creatishh

I am sure some people have a use case scenario for a 1TB cloud which is not end of the world if they go bankrupt tommorow and all data is lost. (this can happen). however most people looking online will not understand this and might put all there files here and nowhere else which can lead to bad things. if something sounds too good to be true it normally is. 1TB Google storage for 20 years would cost you 1600 quid. 30 quid sounds way too good to be true. would i trust my data with them hell no, would i use it for backing up movies or a duplicate of other cloud non confidentials files, yes

WessexUnderwater

I think I am saying the same as Creatishh.... It is not apparent, how Zoolz, which appears a small company, would fund an ongoing cost for AWS storage, which incurs a monthly cost, from a one off fee. Hence you can't really be confident your data will still be available at the point you want to restore it, which defeats the object of a backup. I suspect 'lifetime' subscription refers to the lifetime of the product, not your lifetime. That has been the case with other lifetime subscriptions such as VPN. When the supplier gauges that money coming in does not cover the cost of ongoing subscriptions they can deem the lifetime of the product to be over, retaining the profit from previous subscriptions. I would feel more confident in a backup to a removeable device I owned and securely stored, or cloud storage provided by a big vendor such as Google/AWS/Microsoft.

Just as a bump to this, if you do go for this offer or the Giveaway offer, then you *should* get emailed about 96% off their summer offer. For $29, you get 500 GB of 'cold' storage (where files take approx. 5hrs to restore) and 500 GB of vault storage (immediate access to files) for two users, so 1 TB in total. This is a 'lifetime' deal, so a one off payment - not $29 a year.

Price excludes VAT, btw, so it is £23.99 all-in. I got the freebie 100GB cold storage a year ago and its been fine. With that, yes, you have to wait a few hours before you can restore files, but that's fine for long-term emergency backups. This deal also includes 500GB in an 'instant' vault, which presumably gives you immediate access.

Lifetime storage lol more like until they go under. Plus would you trust your data on someone's server that you don't know who they are??

COLD STORAGE: STORE MORE, PAY LESS With Zoolz innovative Cold Storage, you can instantly backup all your rarely accessed files for cheaper than storing on-premises; Your files will be stored on the secure, reliable, and durable Amazon AWS that requires 3-5 hours restore time or Zero restore time with Hybrid+. Once your files are ready to be downloaded, you will receive an email to restore. Need to store photos? Zoolz provides image preview of photos stored on Cold Storage.

Solidfunk

Thanks for the heads up, I had no idea they operated like that.

watson44

i find google and microsoft clouds easier to access and use. Zoolz can take hours to download one file for use as another backup option its good, but for file access and retrieval its a nightmare

I purchased a lifetime cold storage when this company was called *sky something, they didn't last long. This company seems to have been around longer at least. * I think this is the same company as the website was nearly the same as the old "sky something" company I was with, they even had a deal to migrate your storage to this company (zoolz) had to pay of course, so my lifetime storage didn't help there. Pretty sure it was this : https://stacksocial.com/sales/skyhub-cloud-2tb-backup-lifetime-subscription-2 See here too : https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/54zya0/skyhub_cloud_down/

Lifetime should mean lifetime. Otherwise we should be able to sue them for misleading information.

ben1979

For those not sure about 'hot' and 'cold' storage, the guys over at CNET have provided this description, which was news to me and hopefully of help to others; In fact, your 1TB allotment consists of 500GB of "hot" (meaning instant, Dropbox-like) storage and 500GB of "cold" storage -- the kind you use as a semipermanent archive. (Note, however, that it can take several hours to retrieve files from cold storage.)

It's actually not very useful. To use it you have to download their backup application (which is massive). The 2TB version lifetime 2 user version (£34) which I posted earlier elsewhere, you can simply upload and share individual files in lots of different ways to anyone, particular users with notifications etc, etc

I think you are nit-picking. Ok so you won't be able to store "all" of your files. I have removed that statement (it was a quote from Zoolz). I have included VAT. I explained the two different types of storage in the original post. I agree that "Lifetime" is meaningless. I removed that statement but once again it is coming from zoolz. No storage in the cloud is "lifetime" but anyone looking to use this type of storage should be aware that one day the service will expire. On the other hand, using hard-drives for backup also has a limited life. Having said all of that, the deal should be weighed up against other similar deals (all will claim "lifetime" storage or not mention it at all). Si there a cheaper way to get a total of 1TB storage in the cloud? I'm not here to explain the pros and cons of cloud storage. This is a deal site and the only real criteria that should be used is "can this deal or a very similar deal be bought cheaper elsewhere".

AndyRoyd

In context, here's an objective suggestion why fair-minded HUKD members will downvote this deal as being generally misleading. Examples:The opening statement of "Pay once and backup all your files for life!" is clearly misleading as it includes the word "all" which would only apply to an unlimited storage option. It is convention (requirement?) on HUKD to quote the actual price to be paid inc VAT, in this case it is £23.99 not £19.99 as currently stated.Most people's initial perception of 1TB storage is not unreasonably 1TB, not the quasi 1TB that the merchant splits into 500GB of one type of storage and another 500GB of some other type of storage, where the different types do not immediately appear to be explained for the uninformed.The merchant's definition of "lifetime" may not be the same as the customer's reasonable expectation of "lifetime".Regardless, I voted hot but would have preferred a "warm" option.

stockdam

Compared to other similar online storage, the price appears to be very good. Now whether anyone wants to use it or not is their decision but voting cold just because somebody doesn't like the product is not what this site is for.

draeburn

I totally agree, and in fact I posted the exact same deal about 3 minutes after you, and it got rejected (duplicate)! So often on UKHD most comments are personal (and often uninformed or incorrect) opinions of that particular product or service. As you say, the heat should be added or removed based on the value of the deal for that product, whatever it is, and weather you'd ever buy it or not. Heat added from me because the fact is that £24 is a bargain for 1Tb of secured offsite storage, even if it only lasted for 6 months, let alone a lifetime!

spannerzone

That's a fair comment

Kind of. Dropbox is good for syncing files across multiple machines as well as backing up. This has a client running on your machine to auto backup but don't think it syncs. Also 500gb is instant access backups (like Dropbox) and another 500 cold storage (takes hours to restore).

Does this work in he same way as Dropbox?
