Where do you put your Bat Shark Repellent Spray?
pCloud | 2TB Cloud Storage (No Monthly Fees)
|Don The Idea Guy||Sep 20, 2018|
Ever notice how Batman never seems to run out of space on his utility belt?
I mean, the guy probably has a 29” waist, yet that belt seems to house an endless number of compartments and capsules containing endless lengths of Bat-rope and a never-ending supply of Bat-a-rangs (let alone the cans of Bat Shark Repellent Spray).
If you’re going to be as prepared as Batman, the first thing you need to add to your utility belt is something that allows you endless storage for your own action hero devices, documents, apps, and content. A mysterious super-portal where you can save as many future utility belt items as you’ll ever need...
It’s time to drop DropBox.
I was originally a devoted early user of Dropbox, but I quickly filled up my allotted capacity of free storage and had to upgrade to a paid subscription.
I bought an annual 1TB membership and (for the most part) really enjoyed using it. I rarely any access issues and as more people became familiar with DropBox it became easier to use for sharing project files with clients (and easier to explain what it was to novice digital users).
However, when it came time to renew I didn't relish the idea of shelling out another $100 for the upcoming year and quickly tried to get my file usage back under the free cap of 7GB I'd earned through recruiting new members to Dropbox.
The problem was, I'd grown so used to having this giant virtual hard-drive that even after I successfully lowered my use of the storage it would quickly begin to balloon back up again.
Fortunately I heard about a special deal on cloud storage from a new company called pCloud. They were offering a lifetime deal on their premium plan (500GB) for a crazy low price on one of those "deal" websites. They also had a flat-rate upgrade option to jump to 2TB of lifetime storage for an additional $250 but I held off on that until I made certain pCloud is a reliable provider of cloud-based storage.After about 3-months of putting pCloud through its paces as an archive, shared drive, and even as a hidden link for sharing bonus content I knew I'd be a lifetime pCloud fan and pulled out my credit card to upgrade.
It has been close to a year now and I've never regretted my decision to buy-in on pCloud (especially when my subscription tracking calendar reminds me how much I'd be paying to DropBox every year at renewal time!)
One other thing I really like about pCloud is that their folders just don't share files -- they play files. If I drop a video or audio file into pCloud, I can click a link and quickly see/hear playback without having to download it or open another app, etc. Makes it quick and easy to check the content of a file prior to sharing it, and it makes it super simple for me to share bonus video and audio content with my audience.
