How much does TeamDrive cost?

“TeamDrive free” will cost you nothing and you can synchronize up to 2GB of data free of charge. You therefore have the option of using TeamDrive at no cost. Even in the free version, the encryption of your data and the security of your private information are guaranteed. If you want more storage space or additional functions, you can upgrade at any time to a version for which there is a charge. You can find other TeamDrive versions and details of storage capacity here.

License model: TeamDrive has a user based licensing model. Each user needs a TeamDrive account and a license (Free, Personal or Professional licenses). One license can be used on unlimited client installations by the same user (Desktop, Noteook, HomePC, Smartphone ...) and sync all his/her devices.  The license type depends by the users requirements. The "free" license stops automatic syncing after 2 GB (client side). If you share more than 2 GB with a person, that person needs a paid license. Each paid license can sync and share unlimited files and Spaces.

Only the Space "owner" pays for the server storage and needs to provide enough storage space on the server. You can use the TeamDrive Cloud storage or any other compatible storage, such as standard WebDAV servers (i.e. your MobileMe account or Box.Net ...)  or TeamDrive hosting servers. Each TeamDrive Client can connect and sync with unlimited servers.

Go there... ...
I have a Free account here. I got in wen it was new and I got 50GB of Free Online Storage & Backup. But, I have never really used it. Because it only works well with a Windows System. I Uploaded a few files from a Windows System, to test it and it did work. And, it now works with Firefox in Fedora Linux... Sort of... I can see my files and go through the Folders. But I can't upload any files. Because the Upload Buttons, Just Don't Show up:( Here's a Screen Shot in Firefox 10.0 running on Fedora 14 Linux. Where I put my Cursor, is where the Upload buttons are Supposed to be. They show up in the Chrome Web Browser in Fedora 14. But, I get a Java Error in Chrome and Still Can't Upload. I have Java Installed and working too!:O So, it's not worth the trouble. I wouldn't put any Important Personal Files on any "Cloud" Server in the Internet Anyway... And like I said before. I joined ADrive when it first came out and got 50GB of Free Space. But I haven't really been able to use it because it use to only work with IE. Now it works with Firefox, my favorite Browser. But not for Uploading. The don't give the 50Gig to new members now. But, they may give 5 or 10, not clear on their site now.

But, if you use Windows and a Compatible Web Browser. You may like ADrive...

So, What about DropBox?

Ya, it seems to be very popular these days... But there are others that give you allot more Space (as of 02-10-12).

The free Dropbox account comes with 2GB of space that you can use for as long as you like.

Need more than 2GB of space? We offer Pro plans up to 100GB to meet all your sync and sharing needs.

Here's one for the "Real Techies" out there:)

FileBunker Logo

FileBunker is a file backup application which uses one or more GMail accounts as its backup repository. Because each GMail account supplies 1000 megabytes of storage, it serves as an excellent facility for this purpose. Files are compressed and encrypted for security and efficiency, and can be restored on demand.

Download the most recent FileBunker release here .

What is FileBunker?

FileBunker is a file backup application which uses one or more GMail accounts as its backup repository. Because each GMail account supplies 1000 megabytes of storage, it serves as an excellent facility for this purpose.

How do I get a GMail account?

Currently GMail accounts are by "invitation" only, which means you need to know someone who has a GMail account that can invite you. Ask that person to login to their GMail account and look for the "Invite a friend to join Gmail!" link. Presumably in the near future these accounts will be available to anyone similar to Yahoo Mail or Hotmail.

What happens if I run out of space in my GMail account?

FileBunker automatically compresses your files so they will occupy less space in your GMail account. If your account becomes full, FileBunker will automatically delete messages that represent files that have multiple versions already backed up. FileBunker will never delete the last version of a file stored in your GMail account. You can also acquire multiple GMail accounts, and configure FileBunker with all of them. It will automatically "overflow" from a full GMail account to one that has space.

Can I use my GMail account while also using it as a FileBunker repository?

Sure. FileBunker accesses your GMail account to see how much space is available, and will only backup files to that account which can fit in the available space.

What do FileBunker backup email messages look like in my GMail account?

FileBunker backup email messages have a subject line like:
FileBunker: AAAA/ulSTECt9YxEAAAAAQ [0]

Will FileBunker backup emails clutter my GMail inbox?

Generally speaking, no. When FileBunker runs it periodically tries to archive these messages for you so you never see them. At times you may see some backup emails in your inbox. If so, just select those messages and Archive them.

Online Cloud OS's

Also, you get 5 or 10GB of free Storage Space with some of the Online Cloud OS's. And you get all of the functionality of the free Cloud OS too!:) So, you might want to go that way. But, I did have the same Web Browser Issues with the Cloud OS's too. So, you will just have to try them out and see if they will work on Your System. There are several Variables, Operating System, Web Browsers used and Pug-ins, like Java and Flash... Each Cloud OS is Setup Differently... I searched on my Blog and found these. There is probably more on there too.
