New Dropbox competitor offering 20 gigs of space

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Sun Jul 14, 2013 8:54 pm

There is a new competitor to Dropbox that so far seems to work the same way. Except the start at 15 gigs of space, and if you use my link, we both get 5 more gigs.

This sounds great to me, my 4.5 gigs on Dropbox is always full because I have all my Construct2 projects in there.

No, it's not totally spam, we all use Dropbox around here, this applies.

Edit: Update: As of Oct 2016, Copy went out of business and Cubby is too. I believe I was up to 125 gigs of free space before it shut down. Sigh.

I have signed up...but cannot share the link to file from my computer via right-click like in dropbox. I have to share it from website:(

[EDIT] If you have a mobile device and a dropbox account, download their app and get extra 48 GB (or maybe is just for Samsung devices). worth a tryCipriux2013-07-15 12:18:12

I subscribed too, but link sharing works fine for me, even better than in dropbox. For example, you can see history of files just by right click. It's under "copy actions" in the contextual menu for me.

@Cipriux it's for samsung. Happend to me when I got myself sIII galaxy. After installing dropbox app I've recived an email saying "thank you...blah blah... samsung... blah blah you get +48gb for dropbox for two years"

In this copy I just miss one thing that dropbox have, not sure how to call this. In dropbox if you share a link, you can click it and file will download. In copy if you click on shared link new page will open and you have to press download again to download file.
... And you can't drag&drop folders from desktop to Copy. You have to create all foders manually first and then upload files to each folder.

Actually, I plan to keep both. I'll keep all my projects in Copy so I share them computer to computer, and since I already have a bunch of forum links to dropbox, I'll keep those live, and probably still use that folder for sharing that stuff.

You also get 2 gigs for sharing on Twitter, but referrals doesn't seem to have a max limit like dropbox does. (I'm sure that's temporary, like the 5 gigs is.)
Everyone should post a referral link, and future sign ups can choose one. (I'm feeling guilty now getting them all.)

Edit: test link https://copy.com/PV9tlpCzNLsRzkjZ

Does make a scary looking link. (like a shortened URL)

I did try to search to see if anyone else had posted about it, but searching for "Copy" returned nearly every post ever made.
