So what does this mean for you? If you have their desktop software, absolutely nothing for your files. If on the other hand you are somebody relying on web access to said files, and don't have the originals, then you're well and truly hosed after the 1st.Copy.com and CudaDrive teams wrote:We are announcing today that the Copy and CudaDrive services will be discontinued on May 1, 2016.
Copy and CudaDrive have provided easy-to-use cloud file services and sharing functionality to millions of users the past 4+ years. However, as our business focus has shifted, we had to make the difficult decision to discontinue the Copy and CudaDrive services and allocate those resources elsewhere. For more information on this decision, please view the blog post from Rod Mathews, our GM of Storage.
We know this comes as disappointing news to our users, but rest assured that we will do everything we can to take care of each of you in the manner for which Barracuda is known. We have partnered with Mover to make migrating your data to another service as easy as possible and have created a step by step guide that walks you through the process of moving your data to a local hard drive or another cloud storage solution.
If you are on a paid subscription for either Copy or CudaDrive, please keep an eye out in the coming days for an email with more detailed information on your options. For additional information, please visit our FAQ page.
Thank you to everyone for your support.
All the best,
The Copy & CudaDrive Team
If you are a modder or if you've shared files in posts with copy.com addresses, then please move your files to another service and update your threads as soon as you can. After May 1st, your audience will no longer be able to access your content, but if you install the Copy.com desktop software on your PC and use that to download all of your stuff, you can still reupload it elsewhere and modify your threads after discontinuation.
If you are a user who wants to save any content from copy.com, feel free to download it, reupload elsewhere and post your link in a reply.
Other services you can move files to:
Dropbox (2GB free / 25GB free with some hardware bundles)
SpiderOak (2GB free)
Microsoft OneDrive (5GB free / Already installed if on Windows 10)
MediaFire (10GB free)
Box (10GB free)
pCloud (10GB free1 / Confirmed space sharing)
Google Drive (15GB free)
MEGA (50GB free)
1: Previously listed (and advertised) as 20GB free, actual plans are 10GB free (up to 20GB), suggesting either they backpedaled hard on their free plan or I misread something while I was rushing to release the list update prior.
Bitcasa is discontinuing its Bitcasa Drive service. All data on that service will remain available until May 20th.
A lot of these services also have their own desktop applications for user convenience, once you've settled down with a specific cloud solution you like. Referral programs can get you even more free space with some of these services, and some services will also give you more space if they screw up something and it directly affects you.
We have three months to prevent any loss of data from this, starting today.
