Free Shared Cloud Storage

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

just for the period of the lockdown, my organisation needs a small amount of shared cloud storage. 

 

I think Google Drive is only free for individuals. Any ideas?

 

Thanks

I mean technically there's nothing to stop you using a personal account to share with more people but that's up to you 🤷‍♂️

Hi, I am currently using pCloud after Box who I used to use started offering their wares when people tried to download the Zorin Manuals I wrote for Zorin OS. In addition they (Box) did not support Linux or Firefox - strange as that is what I had been using for the previous 12 months prior to my fallout with them. pCloud offers 4 Gb of free storage - if you run through some hoops this goes up to 6 Gb. They don't offer free for Business use but they do offer a free trial but don't indicate for how long until I suspect you click on the try link:

According to RedditPro - they determine iDrive as the number one for low cost storage (but downside does not offer encryption unlike pCloud which is automatic for all users (encryption included).

if you use google accounts, you can use google docs and share things between each other...

then there's google drive, each have your own and you can make a 'shared' folder you can all use..

same with DropBox

Google drive etc hasn't always been positive experience for some people:

Also as a business they request you use a Google Account - which costs.
