1TB?, 2TB?, 10TB, 36TB? How Many TB of Cloud Storage Space do You Need? JottaCloud, Tencent, Kanbox, Baidu, 360 and BTSync...

Did I mention free cloud storage?

Yeah, these are Chinese/Pacific Rim based companies so if that bothers you, you haven't heard of the NSA. With the USA having given up the last breath of honest governance there is no disadvantage in embracing the Chinese cloud storage give away. Understand that if your data is of the type that it might ruffle the feathers of governance it is best to have that data in a country that you do not reside.  And, of course, you can always encrypt before uploading.  

For those of you concerned about installing the PC client and mobile device software I have noticed that removing the software from my phone and/or computer once it has been downloaded, installed and used to sign in to my account does not reduce my increased cloud storage capacity.

Of note, according to the translations the Chinese think of it, not as a "cloud", but as a "network drive".  Get it free while you can...

What follows is a quick synopsis of four cloud solutions.  But for more details (including upload/download speed restraints as compared to American counterparts  and maximum file size restraints regarding not only upload, but limits as well) concerning each visit this guy's thorough comments as he explored each.  His preference was for 360.



JottaCloud (5gb up to 100gb maybe more)

https://www.jottacloud.com/



JottaCloud is not Chinese.  Rather, it is Scandinavian and claims to be protected from the NSA.  I don't know about being immune to the NSA, but I do like the interface.  It is clean, multilingual, and upload times feel short. I particularly like the backup features of JottaCloud.

Initial signup will net you 5gb but if you use this link (link removed due to the possible conclusion of this promotion) your initial signup will net you 10gig and add 5gig to my account.  This is not automated  so allow me a few hours to respond.   We both benefit. Once you have your account set up your subsequent referrals will net you  5gb per referral. Jottacloud claims that there is a limit of 100gig but I already have 105gig and I'd like to test the limit. I need your help.  Here is the link to your 10gig of JottaCloud.  (link removed due to the possible conclusion of this promotion)  Apologies to those who attempted to use the promotion.

While desktop clients and  file syncs are great, one current drawback to JottaCloud  is that JottaCloud appears to be totally reliant  upon synced/backup files.  That means that JottaCloud seems to be unable  to upload single files via the browser which is problematic  with OS's for which there is no JottaCloud client. My Chromebook is just such an OS and indeed JottaCloud does not work on my Chromebook .  That said, Google plans to make Android apps functional on Chrome OS devises and being that there is a JottaCloud Andriod App availabile  JottaCloud functionality on the Chromebook should be coming soon.




(NEW) Kanbox (10TB) Free

www.kanbox.com




 I have tried this and verified that it works. I currently have 10TB plus another 50gig.


The following arrived via an anonymous comment:

OK, after some tries I find how to link accounts and get 10 TB space.

1. register taobao and alibaba accounts with same email
2. bound phone number to taobao
3. register on Kanbox with same email as on taobao. System will find that you are already member on taobao, so they will tell you can login with taobao account.
4. download Laiwang soft on your phone and register with phone number that is bound to taobao.

5. then go to http://www.kanbox.com/invite/task, (translation in the photo to the left) ... search for 下载登录来往客户端 on page and click on 3.点击领取奖励

You will get 10 TB free!



Baidu (2TB)  (Via the Comments - Baidu now has a Chinese character capcha feature after email verification but it can be broken)  

I used the instructions in the video below and, yes, it took 6 or 7 tries, I lost count, but it works.  

Simply go to http://www.nciku.com/ draw each of the characters and then copy/paste them into the capcha field. (One note... Before I copy and pasted the chracters I entered an English letter into the capcha field, double clicked on it, then replaced that English character with the Chinese characters I created into the capcha field.) 


==

Baidu as well as the other three that follow require a more convoluted signup process made more convoluted by the language barrier.  I set Google to automatically translate all the Chinese it could to English ... a huge help and strongly suggested.  

Baidu offers 2TB free for life ... but only after one downloads, installs and signs into their phone app.  After that one must still claim the 2000GB.  Unfortunately the website, the desktop client nor the apps are offered in English.  That will change soon.

Here is  the best guide I've seen to your 2000GB of Baidu cloud storage.  

Of note, Baidu seems to be the only player of the four in this covered in this post that currently offers uploading via torrent and streaming of your movies.  

Also to be noted is the fact that while I have claimed my 2TB from Baidu I have not used this network storage offering much as I find the interface a bit cluttered.


Weiyun (Tencent) (10TB)

Although I have never been exposed to them until now, Tencent is apparently a huge tech company in SE Asia, like one of the top 5 in the world. That size allows Tencent (like Mega) to store data in multiple countries, not just China.  There is some confidence to be had in that.

One may upload file no larger than 4GB unless one engages the "power upload plugin" at which point the max. file size increases to 32GB. 

Here are the steps required to get your 10TB
  1. Register in the QQ service
  2. Install Tencent Cloud app for your smartphone. Login with the data from step 1.
  3. Click “Get 10TB”.
  4. And don't forget to use the  English version of  Tencent's web offering.

Qihoo 360 (36TB)

Qihoo360 is currently the MacDaddy of cloud storage with 36TB.   To get hold of all 36TB, you must download the PC client & the Android or iOS app.  Downloading and signing in to the phone app alone will net you 26TB but if you choose to download and sign in the PC client you will get another 10TB which gets you to 36,000GB

That's a lot of storage but it does not stop there.  If one signs in each day and clicks on the drawing one gets the chance to increase their storage quota by  around 1/4GB to around 7GB.  Over 30 days this netted me nearly 50GB ... not that I really needed it. Not only is there this game play, but there is another which nets me an additional 150gig/day and up. My understanding is that 360 maxes out at 150TB.

Unfortunately Qihoo is still displayed in Chinese as are the apps and the PC client.  That will change soon, though.  Patience.

For those of you cautious about installing the PC client, I flipped steps 5 and 6 choosing to only to install the mobile device software and get the 26TB for my wife's account.  She was, however,  disturbed by the related Chinese notifications so I later removed that software from her phone incurring no penalty in the process. 

Here are the steps required to get your 36TB
  1. Go to http://huodong.yunpan.360.cn/xt and click the orange button.
  2. In the popup window, click the text near the bottom right corner to Register a new account.
  3. Then enter your email address and your password twice.
  4. Get 10TB-- Now go to http://huodong.yunpan.360.cn/xt to download the PC software (labeled 1), sign in with your account from steps 1 and 2 above and then go back to http://huodong.yunpan.360.cn/xt to claim your 10TB by clicking the orange button. (From the comments: Timo Riemer said, "When the desktop client appears i had to click on the chinese text in the bottom right corner and use the login screen that appears.")
  5. Get 26TB-- Now repeat step number 4 but download your phone app (the QR code helps to get your phone to the right place), sign in with your phone and then claim your 26TB 

BitTorrent Sync (Free)


I would be remiss if I did not include BTSync in this list as a sharing/syncing  and remote backup option  for those who prefer a personal "cloud" in which encrypted data is shared or synced directly between devices without a "middleman" such as the cloud or network drive.

Via BTSync one may sync or share encrypted data between two computers, two phones, or a computer and many devices in any combination.

You begin by you choosing a folder you want to sync at which point BTSync provides you a "secret". With BTSync installed on another device, you can provide that secret and link the folders. At this point they will securely synchronize peer-to peer meaning that none of the data passes through the cloud.



I use this tool to backup photos on my family's Android devices to the family computer which is increasingly becoming our family's personal cloud server.  My son also uses it to make large files such as movies and music stored on his computer at home available to his iPhone so that he has access to those files at school.  From his iPhone he sees only the file names he has made available to his phone, files that he can individually choose to download to his iPhone.  He can also share a read only "secret" to others via QR code so that they too have access to his files for viewing.

The result is that BTSync, by virtue of being cloudless, is one of the most secure easy to use file transfer tools available.




Yunio (1TB+1GB/day)  (Via the Comments -- NO LONGER FREE)

It appears that one may keep their current  free account for $400/year.  This is cheaper than the $600 a new user at the same site would pay for the same product but it looks like I will be bowing out of Yunio all the same.

A shame.


=================

As an aside I'd like to relay synopsis of China's cloud storage price-war written by MarkusMcNugen:


Here’s the summary of the “Cloud Storage War in China”:
· Before all this, free storage services in China are mainly focused on capacity under 15GB.
· But on 8/13/2013, Kingsoft (03888.HK)announced that it has received $20 million investment. With this financing, Kingsoft Kuaipan, a service under Kingsoft offers 100GB free storage service to personal users.
· Then Qihoo 360 said they offer users 360GB
· Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU), the largest search engine in China, said: pay 1 RMB, you’ll get 1TB permanent space (1USD=6.1RMB)
· Then Qihoo said they’ll offer users extra 666GB on top of the 360GB, that’s more than 1TB
· Then Baidu said it offers 1TB free, and users who pays 1 RMB gets an extra 1TB
· Then Tencent joined the war and offers 10T. See my thread here.
· Then Qihoo calls itself the terminator to this war and said it offers users unlimited storage, free and permanent!
· Then Baidu changed it service to offer users the 2TB for free and will refund the 1RMB to users who paid.

Other competitors in the war include:
· Sina (NDSDAQ: SINA), famous for its Twitter like service called “Weibo”, said it offers 100GB and if you share one file to the public, you’ll get the same size of free permanent space (They called it “unlimited”)
· 115.com (just an ordinary cloud storage company) offers 15GB to new users and all users get 1TB every year, increasing to unlimited size.

For those concerned with security:
Qihoo is a reputable chinese company that makes very popular anti-virus software which you can find in the Android market by searching "Qihu 360". All uploaded files are encrypted using your accounts password, and not even the employees of Qihoo have access to your files.

  2. None of what follows refers to the desktop client.

    It is likely you initially entered either your email address or your password in wrong. There is no verification.

    You might want to consider again opening your account from the beginning. You may find that the email address you originally used is still available because originally you miss-typed it and without verification the error was not revealed.

    If the password is the problem then you can hit the forgotten password link below the password request bar.

    If those fail try opening an account under an entirely new email address being very careful not to miss-type either the email address or the password.

    Also, if you have not already done so, consider installing the Chrome browser and allowing it to translate Chinese into your native language. It will translate non-photo text into a language you can read.

  8. Mohamed Azaruddin, I use google's Chrome browser and I have set it to automatically translate foreign websites to English. This is what I see when I visit a foreign language website. (go here -- http://1drv.ms/1fqLDZC). I also provided images of the same page in German, Arabic. and Hindi.

    Under each of the first two circled drop-down menus is an offering to translate languages of my choice to languages of my choice. Unfortunately I can not capture an image of the choices in the drop-down, but here is a list of the language options google offers (go here -- http://translate.google.com/translate_buttons)

    The last button on the right gives me the option to allow google to translate all foreign languages automatically.

    I can not speak to the availability of google and Chrome where you live.

    1. Yunio is bait-and-switch scheme. They want to upload your files during the free 1TB and yet they want you to follow or get out. Guess they did not find something interesting on the files huh?

      Delete
    2. Yes, I had expected them to start charging or monetizing in some fashion as free stuff is never forever, but I had hoped that they would honor their offer with their early adopters.

      Clearly that is not the case with Yunio.

      When customers bind themselves to a service, in this case a time/cost investment in uploading data, the barrier to shifting to another service is often high.

      Yunio has already shown its willingness to abuse that barrier to voting with one's feet via a bait-n-switch scheme in regard to early adopters.

      What is to say they will not continue this practice going forward?

      Yunio can no longer be trusted.

  14. Anyone uses the Weiyun (Tencent) 2.0 desktop client?!?!? I can't find where I define the sync folder!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not in the desktop client, it's in a separate download from the same page you got the desktop client.

      One of the buttons is Windows 2.0 while under it there is one labeled Windows 1.6. The 1.6 version is what they call the Windows Sync Tray.

      While I have installed it and played with it a little I took it off because it was in Chinese and it's default setting seems to be to upload .. something .. which it initiates immediately upon start-up. This may just be a result of the installation process in which I am agreeing to things I can't read.

      In short, I am waiting for the English version of their app, desk client, and sync. Hopefully they will merge the desktop client and sync when that happens.

      That said, I like the simplicity of their web interface. 360 and Baidu have so much cruft.

    2. Thnak you! I´ll try to install the v. 1.6 then.

      The signup process changes, or will change, over time and I periodically create new accounts in an effort to watch for those changes.

      The comment you refer to verified that the signup process still works without requiring me to do it myself.

      Did you try Timo's comment above?

    2. Be sure to have Google auto translate.

      Currently there is the "Daily" button found near the top/right area of the page. Occasionally I would get 7.2 gig from that now it seems to be limited to two gig.

      At the same time that upper limit was reduced what I thought of as the "wheel of fortune" page disappeared. I would spin it three times a visit occasionally earning 1tb with a spin.

      The giveaways are now much more limited than they once were.

      If you want to get to 150tb quickly open 4 or 5 accounts.

      At the top of the page there is a link to a page which gives one of the most in depth explorations of 360 that I have seen.

    1. The reason I mentioned the 3 or 4 accounts option is that 360 is not giving away the tb's as freely as they were just a few months ago.

  22. Ah okay, that´s why it was too diferent.

  23. Helo, I have few questions:

    1. I have problem with Weiyun sync software. It is crushing all the time on PC WIN8. Any idea why? I can transfer files with desktop client but can not use sync soft.

    2. Another thing I want to know is how to transfer files between clouds? Is there any Chinese free service that offer this? So I want to transfer all files from Weiyun cloud to 360 cloud.

    3. If I install 360 desktop sync client and chose for example HDD F: it wil make 360 folder there that will sync files inside. Now If I install Weiyun desktop sync client and put as location F:/360/Weiyun it will create Weiyun folder there and at the end I install Baidu deskt sync client and put location F:/360/Weiyun/Baidu that will make his folder there. Will this make that all cloud sync same time? So what I upload to Baidu folder will sync to Baidy account but same time to Weiyun and 360. What I put to Weiyun will sync same time to Weiyun and 360, and all files I put into 360 will be on 360? (Baidu will have some files, Weiyun will have its own files plus Baidu files on cloud and 360 will have its own files, plus Weiyun cloud files plus Baidy files.)

  28. I have a question about Qihoo, if I upload copyrighted files, for example, windows7 iso file, they will delete or ban my account?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I ask that because in the final part of your post you wrote : "All uploaded files are encrypted using your accounts password, and not even the employees of Qihoo have access to your files." So it means they don`t know what do I uploaded? And for example if I upload a windows7 iso, for example, at final, they will delete or ban my account? I have a doubt in that
    Maybe you can do a post translating the Qihoo pc client, I don`t know and I couldn`t translat it. Thanks. Waiting your answer . . .

    1. Someone else said that. Unfortunately that link appears to inactive.

      I have my doubts if for no other reason than the fact that one of the ways to save storage space for companies such as these is to have one copy of a file that may people upload. Movies and songs work this way.

      For security I'd consider Mega.com. Ar 50 free gig it's not a bad deal.

      Delete
    2. I have seen the links that are ihinking in mega but I don`t know ...
      I mentioned copyrighted files because I have that one and i want to upload it to a cloud because i need space in my hdd,

      But I would upload it only for me, not for posting it in warez sites or something like that. Do you think they will detect that i uploaded the windows iso if I only upload it for me?

      As a personal experience, in 4shared I uploaded the kmspico(the ms office activator) 3years ago, and it is still there. but it has a limit in daily bandwidth, so i prefer another service, not 4shared

      Delete
    3. I was thinking to upload the iso the Qihoo, so do you think they will detect it if I only upload it for me? I won`d share it because I don`t want to upload it again

    5. I use Weiyun at the moment without problems. Patched the sync client to english as well as the desktop client. But when i get a share link of a file, it stops working after 1 day and i need to recreate a share link.

      Is ther a way around this? Or is one of the other cloud services better in this matter? When i mail a link to someone i don't want the link to get obsolete. I use mega sometimes and those links are forever. Any tips?

    1. Hi. Tencent only allows you to upload files up to 1GB through Windows client and bigger files (more than 4GB but I don't know how big) through the web version. To do this using the web I have to use the Chrome plugin (the weiyun site asks you to download it)

  31. Good post bro. I only have two doubts about qihoo,
    1. Does it accept remote upload?
    2. Does it have a "referral program" so I can increase my storage space? I mean, like dropbox and onedrive that if you recruit a friend you win X Mb, gbs, Does Qihoo have that too?
    And thanks for the info bro, is very useful

    1. The intent of this post is to guide those who are interested in some of the massive cloud storage options offered in China.

      With the exception of Yunio all the choices listed above are free.

      I suggest signing up for each and deciding for yourself which best suits your needs and desires.

      I originally liked Yunio... Oh well.

      Another guy I linked to liked 360. Perhaps you will like Tencent. It is for you to decide.

    For the motion element, there were plenty of cars and pedestrians outside our offices that would have made good test subjects. In this case, we went with a bicycle since it falls somewhere in between the two.

    In last year's tests, we were able to do a neat mouseover trick to show you each site's original quality from the same part of a clip. We've done that again this time, but since the videos are too wide for this page, we're only doing it with a portion of the clip. While the player size on each service was different, we viewed each video at the maximum full-screen resolution (1280 pixels wide), in order to preserve the original quality.

  35. I liked your post very much because it gives me most of the information I was searching on the internet from many days of online cloud storage services.

  36. I Have heard about Tencent Weiyun but not about the others. I've signed up to all of them (including 115.com but I couldn't to Sina) and the cloud space is awesome! I'll need at least 3 lifes to use all this space. Thank you for this great post, guy!

    PS:
    1) Yunio has closed it's free service about two months ago. And the price is a bit expensive starting at 100GB.
    2) 115.com is currently offering 8TB. Just follow these steps: http://115.com/event/2014/chunjie/?top

    1. Yes. Yunio has unfortunately shut down free service.

      115.com is new to me. Thank you for mentioning it. I will add it to the original post after I sign up for it.

  37. Hi,
    if you use the pc application from tencent or qihoo, baidu, the upload / download speeds are higher,
    or just the same as when you up/down from their website?

    right now the speeds i get are:
    tencent upload ~300kB/s
    qihoo upload ~500kB/s (and download was significantly higher than on tencent around 18-20Mbps)

    What are the speeds on your side?

    ReplyDelete
  38. is there a daily / monthly bandwith limit on 360 cloud?
    I uploaded around 16GB, and now the upload speed is barelly 80kB.
    The speed in generall is not good on 360.

    I heard good things about Kingsoft cloud
    http://www.kuaipan.cn/
    they offer 2TB.
    It's not 36TB, but such virtual space is pointless if you can't actually use it.
    Maybe i will try that kingsoft cloud, and see how it goes

    2. OK, after some tries I find how to link accounts and get 10 TB space.

      1. register taobao and alibaba accounts with same email
      2. bound phone number to taobao
      3. register on Kanbox with same email as on taobao. System will find that you are already member on taobao, so they will tell you can login with taobao account.
      4. download Laiwang soft and register with phone number that is bound to taobao.
      5. then go to http://www.kanbox.com/invite/task , search for 下载登录来往客户端 on page and click on 3.点击领取奖励 You will get 10 TB free!

  43. 360YUN Desktop Client in ENGLISH!!!

    I was able to get the 360 Desktop Client to be 'partially' english by translating the 'language.ini' file in Google Translate. Most menu items and other key areas now have english labels. Merely open the language.ini; copy/paste the text contents into Google Translate (chinese to english) then copy/paste the results back into language.ini (copy entire text and replace entire text) then save and start 360 yun client....PRESTO...english labels and menus :)

  44. OK. Can someone help. Is there any service that we can use to transfer files between clouds *from baidu to weiyun to yunpan....?

  45. Hi, I would like to know a little more of user's privacy in yunpan 360. If somebody knows about this point, please I will be very thankful on read it on this blog. Since I heard about NSA I think there is no security in the cloud. However, i cannot live with that paronia. I guess after all, There is no 100% security guaranteed by any free cloud storage service.

    But if somebody know about encryption of the data after uploaded... It would be nice to read it here. Thanks in advanced!

  47. One aspect that no one has mentioned, is the fact the upload speeds are not ideal (or i it just me?).

    I ran a test on yunpan 360 over 5 days, trying to upload 120gb of mp3 files. In the first 12 hours, 15gb were uploaded. Since then, I’ve only managed to upload a further 3gb. For very brief periods, I am getting up to 2Mb/s, which is still pretty slow, but most of the time, I’m seeing speeds of less than 100Kb/s and very often, the upload stops completely.

    I read on a chinese forum (question answered by Qihoo staff, apparently) - they said the uploads go to randomly selected servers, some of which are not up to standard - they also said they are “working on it”.

    As things stand, it would take a month of Sundays to upload 2tb let alone 10 or 36

  54. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest how someone hampered by English as the only language can find the Public Sharing Groups mentioned in the referenced article. I did some simple searches and found some files I was interested in, but most web-published URIs are no longer valid. Finding these sharing groups would be awesome, as it's amazingly fast to get copies of files into your 360 cloud.

  57. I suspect yunpan has disposed of the Public Sharing Groups...any of the URIs found deliver a, "System upgrade and maintenance, this feature is temporarily suspended!" page. And as I mentioned, most of the encrypted URIs one can find with Google (or startpage.com as I prefer) have the sad-dude, "this share has been cancelled" error page.

    Still, one can occasionally find what one is looking for if one is willing to waste a bunch of time searching. It's a pain, but a whole lot faster than BitTorrent...

  64. Yunpan now asks for my phone number . When I enter mine , it says that my number is invalid . I guess its because I live outside China. Any workaround for that . Once you register with your mobile number , only then are you allowed to log in with your email id .
