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.

Why don't you trust DropBox ? I understand not trusting "google-big-brother" (GDisk), but I thought that DropBox is not affiliated with the big-brother.

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.

The best one I have tested for the Mac, elegant, simple and not annoying. I just tried Yunio, less features but you get 1TB terra free ! Also synch,... see below my post for dropbox, m$skydiVe...

Very fair amount of free space 15 GB to start and 5 GB more for each referral.

Previous post, for dropbox, 2 GB free... woaaa look at copy.com 15 GB and +5 GB/ref, mega.co.nz = 50 GB, adrive = 50 GB, Yunio 1TB, yes TERA free with synch, share, delay, number of downloads... and very fast.

And I have no link with any of those cloud provider.

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 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?

ok, it seems that you can sync from the site with the right mouse button on the folder/upload etc. ....

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.

Gary30 had trouble on 27 Jan 2014
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 didn't "have trouble." I just happen to have posted in the troubleshooting section. Oops.

Not a good start, what's with this error: "Your browser cannot
play this file."

It's a simple jpg picture file. Doesn't Copy play well with Safari?

Want to bring some files home? No problem! With Copy, they're already there. Copy's apps keep files in sync between your Macs, PCs, iOS devices, Android devices, and more.

There are no file size limits with Copy, and with Copy's "Fair Storage," the size of a shared folder is split between the number of users sharing the folder, so a 25GB folder shared with 5 users only counts as 5GB towards each user's quota.

Copy is developed by network security and backup giant Barracuda Networks, meaning your files are stored on servers Barracuda Networks controls and manages, for maximum security. Your data is also protected by multiple layers of encryption, including AES-256, both during transfer and while at rest on Barracuda's enterprise-class cloud storage. Advanced security features include: secure sharing, source validation, and identity verification.

Copy Pro for individual users includes 250GB of storage for $9.99/month or $99/year.

Copy for Companies is Copy's enterprise-level service. Get started with 5 users for free, or add hundreds more if you like, at a cost that's 20-50% less than competing services.
