FREE cloud storage

FREE Cloud Storage for Linux

There is lots of FREE cloud storage available.

I write this mainly for Linux users however most cloud storage services are cross platform so they do work for Windows as well.

The “CLOUD” is pretty cool. You can store files there and access them from any computer regardless of where you are. As long as you have internet access you will have access to those files.

The “CLOUD” is big business. Of course companies sell storage. But for me and for most businesses you need access to only a few files. There is really no need to pay for storage.

Not everyone pays for cloud storage. There are several options available for free storage. Some even offer 50GB free. Most cloud storage services will also have a mobile app.

With a little bit of ingenuity you can probably have all the storage you need for free. So, how do you find it? I have compiled a list of cloud storage services here. Feel free to check out any or all of them and decide if they can work for you. As some of you know, we publish a monthly Worldwide Satellite/Transponder list. We use BOX and MEGA for our cloud storage needs.

FREE storage is great, but remember you are putting your stuff on the cloud. In todays hackable world you might consider the security issues we read about every day.

I stopped using cloud storage for sensitive files a long time ago because of the security risks. I now use Syncthing. “Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it’s transmitted over the Internet.”

Syncthing is easy to set up and works great. I used a old laptop with Linux OS and Syncthing. Now I have my files on any computer I use where ever I happen to be. Storage size is only limited by the hard drive size. Best of all, it’s all FREE!
