Livedrive goes live (online storage and backup)

Online storage and file backup service Livedrive has dropped its beta label and it's now charging for service. We first looked at the service back in December, when Livedrive was offering unlimited file storage for free while in beta. Now that the service has officially launched, the company is charging £39.95 per year for 100GB of space or £89.95 for unlimited storage. That's about...

ADrive lets you store 50GB of files online for free

A few months ago Microsoft issued an update to Windows Live SkyDrive, allowing users to store up to 25GB of files online for free. But a whole year earlier, ADrive was offering a whopping 50GB of free storage space. Unfortunately the service was hobbled by an awkward file upload system. I hadn't really thought about ADrive very much in the last year or so. But this afternoon I got an email from...

Yahoo! Briefcase is finally being put out of its misery

Ten years ago when Yahoo! launched Yahoo! Briefcase, the service provided users with a much-needed place to store their files and documents online. But time marched on, and while other companies offer gigabytes of free storage space, Yahoo! still offers a paltry 30MB of free disc space. Rather than upgrade the service with a slick new interface or additional storage, Yahoo! has decided to close...

Oosah offers 1TB of free online media storage

It's not hard to find an online service that lets you upload a few hundred megabytes of pictures, music, and movie clips. Some even give you 5 or 50GB. But Oosah is a service that's upping the game. By a lot. Oosah claims that users get 1TB of online storage for free. There are some limitations. You can only upload videos that are 200MB or smaller, images that are 50MB or less, and MP3 files...

Wuala P2P online storage service goes live

Wuala is a social file storage application that we first looked at back in February. At the time, Wuala was in private beta, but starting today anyone can sign up for an account. Unlike other file storage/sharing services, Wuala doesn't provide you with web space. Rather, your files are encrypted and then stored on the computers of other Wuala users. While this might sound a bit scary, the...

MediaMax is dead, The Linkup is dead, Streamload is dead

Once upon a time there was a company called Streamload that let users upload huge media files to a web site fo sharing with their friends. Eventually Streamload changed its name to MediaMax and offered pretty much the same service. This year the company changed its name again, this time to The Linkup and launched a new business model: a social network based around online file storage and...

DivShare implements upload and bandwidth limits

Online file hosting and sharing service DivShare has a lot going for it. Users can upload and share pretty much any file, and if you've got media like pictures, documents, audio, or video to share, DivShare has a slick Flash utility for embedding content on your web page. Best of all, unlike other services out there, so far DivShare hasn't put caps on how much online storage space you can use or...

Are web desktops the new online storage solutions?

Online storage service Ewedrive is shutting down and the developers are focusing their time on Desktop on Demand, an online desktop application instead. And that got us thinking. Are online desktops, or so-called "web operating systems" the new online storage? Sure, we've been a bit down on WebOSes in the past. They sort of jumped the shark for us when companies started creating web browsers...

DigitalBucket online file storage still in beta, but keeps getting better

When we first looked at DigitalBucket last year, we told you that the service was about to emerge from beta. We were wrong. The online file storage service is still in beta, but that's a good thing. It means you can continue to use DigitalBucket for free. Eventually the company will start charging for service with plans ranging from $15 per year for 1GB of online storage space to $149 per year...

ADrive 50GB online storage service issues almost useful update

Last month we discovered ADrive, a free online storage service that could be everything you've ever dreamed about, if your dreams are kind of dull. Basically, the service offers a huge amount of storage space for free. But the interface was a bit less than dreamy. For starters, you couldn't upload complete directories. The only way to upload multiple files was to select them manually. ADrive...

Google GDrive coming soon?

Ever since Google catapulted itself into the email arena by offering way more online storage space for email than any of its competitors, rumors have been flying that Google was going to find another user for all that server space: online data storage. In fact, some folks have been crafty enough to turn GMail's 5+ GB of storage into a virtual online hard drive. But the official Google hard drive...

OpenBox: Box.net launches web app platform

Box.net is transforming from a service that lets you store your files to a service that lets you store, edit, manipulate, and share your files. That doesn't mean Box.net is getting into the online office/image editing/blogging business. Instead, the company is launching OpenBox, a platform that lets web app developers tie their services into Box.net. From a user perspective, what this means is you...

Microsoft doubles Live SkyDrive storage to a whopping 1GB

While it's nice that Microsoft is starting to offer web-based services like the ability to store and share files online, Windows Live SkyDrive launched earlier this year with an anemic 500MB storage limit per user. But when you can get 5GB of free space from AOL's Xdrive or 25GB of space for media files from MediaMax, half a gig just doesn't cut it. So what does Microsoft do? They increase the...

DigitalBucket: Store, organize, and share your files online

Online storage sites are a dime a dozen these days. In fact, many offer several gigs of storage for free. Digital Bucket isn't free, or at least it won't be when it exits beta. But it does offer a few nice features. Digital Bucket's interface is almost identical to the basic Windows File Explorer. Once you upload files, you can drag and drop, copy and paste, rename, zip, or unzip them. You can...
