    Cool Copy.com referral thread

    Please post all referral links in this thread -- cariboo907


    There's a new Cloud sync service that is cross-platform called `Copy`. I first read about this at OMG! Ubuntu (‘Copy’ – New Cloud Storage Service With Apt Name, Linux Clientx).

    Copy, a relatively new entry into the ‘cloud storage’ service arena, has a very apt name. Aside from supporting Linux out of the box from day dot the rest of its offerings are, sadly, fairly predictable.
    On the ‘cons’ side the privacy and security policies safeguarding your data aren’t quite as robust as competitors; it can’t auto-sync; and the app gives no indication/notification that a file has completed syncing.
    The gimmick they are using is that you get 5GB for free, and for every referral you get to sign up You and Them both get +5GB bonus. So you get 5 more GB of space and the person signing up gets 10GB. So if you get 9 people to sign with your reference code up you'll 50GB of space.

    It isn't as integrated as Ubuntu One, and don't know about the long-term standing of the company but I did get an account so I can explore it.

    If you are interested, check out the website for Copy.com and if you are interested in getting an account I offer this (my) reference code so you get 10GB and I get a bonus as well.

    My Reference Code : https://copy.com?r=wR3jYg

    Outside of the size and cross-platform/distro aspect of it, there is little to it, but I am going to check it out anyway since I do use Ubuntu One, SkyDrive, Dropbox and more and want to see how this stacks up now, and in the future. Of course, if I could get like 100GB for free from Dropbox or UbuntuOne, I would probably not look at any offer like this. I may even be willing to drop my 25GB of SkyDrive.

    Well, I can say that I personally have been using Copy.com for a while now and I am totally hooked! They offer much better features than than most other cloud storage providers.


    For a limited time, if you use the following link to sign up for Copy.com, you get additional 5GB of free online storage forever, so a total of 10GB!: https://copy.com?r=imaNoO

    Give a try on Copy. Unlimited file size, delta sync, "fair storage" when sync with friends, sync out of folder via shortcut / symlink. And a Linux client from the start is very nice.

    Get 20GB free with this link: https://copy.com?r=DtLCDR

    I'll throw my referral link if anyone wants to sign up for 20GB. So far pretty happy with the service and we can never have too much available cloud space.

    Re: New Cloud Sync service Copy.com

    @kevdog: You may be right about this thread. Some of the people posting referral links above have 0 beans! I've decided to sign up for an account, but I used Dragonbite's referral link instead of the later ones.

    My experience so far has been pretty good. The Linux client program is distributed as a ".tgz" file rather than a deb package, which is a bit annoying. However, it does have a nice Ubuntu-looking tray icon. And the fact that you can get 22 GB of space without even referring a single friend is great.

    Are referral links allowed on ubuntuforums? Perhaps a mod can comment on that. I'll assume that they're okay for now:

    Code:
    cd /home/your_username/opt/copy/x86_64
    ./CopyAgent
    Great, thanks you. In case anyone needs it: https://copy.com?r=RP8n0N

    I been using it too. I was very glad that it has a Linux client, opposed to Google Drive (which I was using more and more over Dropbox those days).

    Re: New Cloud Sync service Copy.com

    Thanks Dragonbite for your post. I also find annoying and cumbersome for new users the tgz distribution. Added to that, when installing Copy I've found a problem that I'd like to share in case someone stumbles with it.

    Installation problem:
    Downloaded the Copy.tgz OK from the website link (https://copy.com/install/linux/Copy.tgz). The downloaded file weighed 2 Mb. but was broken. Both command line tar and Gnome archive viewer complained with "gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file" at extraction. I tried several times both from browser and with wget, getting always the same. BTW, no proxies nor restrictive firewalls here, plain home DSL. Other SSL downloads working without problem.

    My solution:
    The solution was downloading without SSL using the http://copy.com/install/linux/Copy.tgz URL (no https).
    Download is now 33 Mb. and extracts OK. Anyone else experienced this?

    In case it helped someone, my referral link is https://copy.com?r=gjAdzv
