Shameless advertising :P

Is it somehow distinct from established cloud services such as DropBox, Google Drive or Microsoft SkyDrive? Or why should anybody choose exactly that service?

Well i'm sorry if i offended someone with this post just wanted to share it with you guys. It is better then dropbox, gdrive, and skydrive because it offers unlimited space with invites... I was really hyped about it when i found out today about it, so i thought i share it ( and yes get some more space :P ) . If you want you can remove post i don't have anything against it, just thought this is a part of the forum for general stuff .

I am not either backing you up or against you, but why would an average person want unlimited cloud storage? Don't you own an hard drive? I am not sure why this would hype you so much but I guess you want a piracy repository?

Just a hunch, but there are very little cases where a individual requires so much space.. Or are you a film producer or something like that? Even in that case.. hm..

If I am wrong, don't mean to offend! :)

Flash drives are usually a really bad idea for long term storage. I've seen several different drives lose all their contents multiple times after they've been sitting around for a while. If you want that data to be around for a while you should think about at least putting one other copy on a mechanical hard drive. Or a cloud storage service I guess.

When i reinstall my computer i usually want to format whole hard drive not just C drive. So i need to store all my movies music and stuff , witch is usually around 50gb-s, that's why i need it, but on the other hand i'm thinkind on getting an external hard drive and keeping my data on that :D

Also i'm using cloud storage sync application to sync my projects between my computer and laptop :D ( that need ~1gb XD ).

Deleting temporary files in your projects will probably cut 70% of that size :D
