Online storage vault

Has PlusNet any plans to offer an online storage service, eg like BT's Digital Vault?
Perhaps with the sophistication of online recovery.
Most users must require this service.

Re: Online storage vault

Actually offering a guaranteed backup service would be very expensive.
For small quantities of data (< 2GB), https://www.getdropbox.com might be of interest.
(It's free).
Of course you would probably have to encrypt your data.
But it does keep a directory sync'ed with online storage...

Re: Online storage vault

I have an adrive account which gives me 50GB free, though I have been looking at the Amazon storage (15c per GB per month, 10c to upload) with jungledisk for cheap storage.

Re: Online storage vault

Hi,
I'm afraid that we don't currently have any plans to offer anything similar.

Re: Online storage vault

Personally, I wouldn't want any of my (generally) personal/private files. logs etc. being backed up on someone else's equipment.

Re: Online storage vault

I'm using one which allows me to put screenshots onto a site, with generation of a url.
I wouldn't put much else on someone else's site though.
e.g. http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/449229/Mug_and_Torus_morph.gif
(open in a window and wait several seconds)  Smiley
