Good and reliable, with huge amount of storage. Though, first I tried it because I liked the icon)

I'll second that opinion that "it's the best cloud storage around". No one else was giving away the amount of space as Copy at the beginning, 15GB and 5GB referrals. You had 20Gb from day one and dropbox was still offering 2GB. If I share an 800MB file with you and you also have Copy, we split the data amount. Dropbox and the rest charge us both the full 800MB. That's fair! Getting it running on Linux takes a little tech work, but not anything hard. There is no .deb or .rpm installer. Have to run the binary from a folder. Work on that and get some sync integration with 1Password, MoneyDance etc and I'll add that half-star :) I'm currently beta testing their newest thing called "CudaDrive". It mounts your system like a drive.. So far, so good.

Good and reliable. Unlike Dropbox, it does not have support for older OS X versions, but, well, that is life. Second to Dropbox in features, first in balance storage capacity/reliability.

After dropping Dropbox I spent weeks trying out every other online storage app. In my opinion this is the best one — and I like it better than Dropbox. The OS X and iOS apps work beautifully, as does the browser access, the amount of free storage is more than fair, and I found the system to be very easy to understand. Give this service a try, I'm glad that I did.

We always used Dropbox with no problems. Lately it did suffer from slow download rates so we were looking for something else. Copy is the new cloud server that always has high transfer rates and enough free space to make backups.

The "mover" says I am to select a source from my google Drive and also from Dropbox. I don't understand what kind of source to use. Do they want to create a folder or what? Why can't the copy app just move my files? Why are they asking fora source?

I've been looking for a Dropbox replacement for some time, and I think i've found it! Copy does everything Dropbox does and more, it syncs reliably (so far), and there's a generous amount of free space (20 GB through the MacUpdate link). Things I like include that Copy syncs Mac extended attributes (such as tags, package bits, file extension visibility), it offers LAN sync and selective sync, I can turn off the icon overlays and there are not added contextual menu items (these two "features" of Dropbox irritate me to no end), I can undelete files, and there's an iPhone/iPad app. Copy needs to revise the prices of their plans, however. Dropbox offers 1 TB of storage for $10/month, while Copy only offers 250 GB for that price. Meanwhile, Apple is selling 200 GB of iCloud Drive for $4/month. To remain competitive, Copy needs to drop the price of the 250 GB plan to, say, $5/month (and maybe also offer a smaller plan). At a price like that, and with the features that Copy offers, I would upgrade to a paid plan.

This last version is compatible with Yosemite DP7, which is good news, Dropbox is not, for the time being. Indeed, a very good and useful cloud solution.

Good product but missing one very important feature - the ability to SEARCH for a file on the website and IOS counterpart app. Much as I tried to use it, this omission was too much work and unnfortunately, I ended leaving Copy. Users have asked for this on their Forums, but so far there is no commitment from Barracuda Networks. Too bad, otherwise its a good service.

The synchronization on the computer works fine, but the service in the web browser is tragic. Extremely unintuitive - you can not even select several files at once, and it works very slowly.

Apart from the lack of release notes, the only thing I don't like about Copy (if this is accurate) is that if a person you're sharing a folder with deletes a file, it doesn't delete it from the folder of the original person who shared it... which is how Dropbox works. Is anyone else experiencing this? On on hand it's good because it means people you share folders with can't delete your files, on the other hand it makes file management more of a chore since only the host can permanently delete anything.

My Laptop is a Macbook air but my principal Macs are Imacs with Snow leopard as an OS Soeven though I have Mavericks on my MacBook Air,I feel left out . Besides I have a Mackbook Pro from 2008 that has Snow Leopard as an OS so I can not use this Cloud.

So much better than Dropbox, in my opinion. I'm up to nearly 2TB of free space - that's 2,000GB, instead of the 20GB Dropbox limits you to. The service has been rock solid, and I feel a lot better about security provided by Barracuda than I do Dropbox.

I tried all the major cloud storage systems after deciding to drop Dropbox and found Copy to be the best choice for me. The website and apps work great, and the initial free space plus referral bonuses are generous for my needs. I don't miss Drop[box one bit and am happy to have made the switch.

I use it a lot, and it works perfectly with OS X, iOS, Android. A good integration with Finder as well. I'm wondering why Copy is not listed as sharing service in many cases. You can always see Dropbox and a plethora of other (even not so common...) services and not Copy. It's a pity.

I know how good this looks and sounds. But look at your Activity Monitor in Utilities. It's using more CPU than the Kernel itself. I'll stay away until these issues are fixed. It also, without asking permission, installs as a start-up item in User & Groups under Preferences. This is unacceptable to me. Even iTunes has been forbidden to do that.

I'm looking for a replacement for Ubuntu One, which has served my online backup and syncing needs well, but is shutting down in June. Copy looked like it might be a viable alternative, but I need something that runs on OSX 10.6, and this won't.

Just installed and tested it again after more that a year. Very little if anything has changed... except technology limitations. That it cannot run (anymore) on a Mac below 10.7.1 is silly. It is just encrypted transmission of data, so it is not like an app cannot be made to do that on any OS. In addition, it still wants to route anyone you share with to its own site. The extra storage is not worth the nonsense. Dropbox may be the most limited storage capacity out their, but when I need to share something publicly--direct or through a web system of any king--it is still the go to no-brainer. And after a year or more, Copy still has not learned why it isn't even third or fourth in the cloud industry ranks.

I downloaded Copy as a replacement for DropBox, which I no longer trust. Installed on my iMac running Mavericks and on my iPhone without difficulty. Then I try to install on my old MacBook running Snow Leopard—oops, Copy doesn't work on anything below OS10.7. Can't use just the Browser either, because it does not display properly on Firefox under Snow Leopard. I run four machines, and if I cannot install Copy on two of them, then it is not a viable option for me. Pity.

I have been using Copy for several months now and find it to be rock solid and reliable across my Macs and IOS devices. It just works. Easily one of the best could services I have tried. Beats Google Drive and OneDrive for reliability and Norton for speed. The only thing I would ask for is a "search" capability on the website. That would make it perfect.

I my opinion the best cloud storage around, a great alternative to Dropbox. They give plenty of space and they seem to be fair about it... Too bad that it doesn't support older systems and PPC ;( well you can use it through web browser at least... Only thing I am waiting now is that developer of iFiles (iPhone app) gave us the option for copy.com service inside it's app.

I have never trusted these cloud services, particularly with big files. For my acid test of Copy I uploaded a 12GB encrypted sparseimage containing a complex folder structure and a huge variety of files. The upload took a few hours, and seemed to take up about 60% to 80% of our upload bandwidth which was fine. The upload stole very little from the CPU and did not seem to affect web browsing for others in our family. Today, I downloaded the sparseimage. Performance was excellent and the downloaded file was bit-perfect. So I am gradually becoming more enthusiastic about cloud syncing. Step by step.

I have spent a lot of time with Copy and am delighted. I have been using Dropbox and was happy with it despite the 2GB limitation. Performance-wise I see no difference between the two; upload and download speeds are similar. I don't do a lot of sharing but what I have done has been seamless. The only "problem" is that there are fewer iOS apps that support Copy directly. That is very minor for me and I suspect that API's will allow developers to work with Copy anyway. We shall see. Finally, from visiting the support forums Copy seems to be very responsive to user requests, honest about problems, and diligent in working with folks.

Too early for a review, but signup including the 5 GB bonus was seamless. Suddenly I seem to have 20 GB of free cloud storage that is organized in a way that is similar to Dropbox--maybe even simpler. Will throw some serious data at it next week to see what happens. For now, why not?

Try to sync for days and takes 4 GB of ram, continuously writes to disk and the CPU goes to 20%. The upload is blocked by one days to 5 GB. For me this is rubbish.

Nice, for a fledgling operation... but aside from appealing starter storage it is (1) still not completely ready for primetime and (2) does not match DropBox's online usability features. All of the following is aside from certain necessary hidden system files associated to targeted files that are not being backed up / uploaded... 1) No way to host files for direct download without forcing others to visit the Copy site. This is a promotional trick used by many wannabe "Clouds" to get other people to come to their site... and away from the site that provides the link to the file. 2) No way to also host a media file for direct integration into the layout of a web site / system or especially a publicly accessible web-based application or utility. 3) No way to fully manage the account, including account deletion. Some other features for direct account management are missing (for now), leading to the need to email support and wait for them to make even minor tweaks. "Copy" is still a new service, especially when one notices that many of the applications for mobile devices are in "beta" status. But if the issues I mention above are not important to you, then it is worth a try, but beware... Many of these online storage services (popping up everywhere) start off with a generous storage offer for free. Later, others signing up may not get that same offer. And worse, some of these services even cut the storage amount you got for free to match how they cut the offer for later new signups. Fair warning, for as said, Copy is still new... but worth testing and watching. NOTE: Nothing is free. When you use these services, read your user agreement thoroughly. There are always catches, but sometimes a services is worth it.

Been working fine for me. OSX Lion (my mini is outdated), 64 bit Ubuntu & Win 8 on my laptop, and with Mavericks on my wife's laptop. Never had any of the issues described below. Generous amount of space to start and with referrals. I have been finding that Dropbox is a little heavy on resources while indexing at start up. My only hope is that it doesn't go to a "pay only" model like SugarSync just did.

Seems like a good deal. I installed it but it causes Finder crashes on my iMac running Mavericks. Their own forum shows people asking about this, but as of this writing, no answer. I wrote to support and their reply was simply, install the latest version. I did, same issue. I asked again, saying I had to delete Copy as this problem is ongoing, and their reply was simply, "Please let us know when you wish to try Copy again in the future."

used the referral link to sign up, installed the mac app and logged in, received no bonus... also tried clearing cookies etc, still no bonus. what gives? i'll happily give a higher rating when that's resolved... unrelated to that, paid plans seem reasonable compared to dropbox, seriously considering getting one.

Great idea, great value. But: I won't subscribe to any cloud hosting where the data isn't encrypted BEFORE the upload. Encryption on the server is fine but if I don't have it in my own hands, encryption doesn't make sense - except, it sounds good.
