Bitcasa: Gives Infinite Storage Space To Your Folders

Many of us deeply value some of the tools that exist out there which make our lives so much easier. One of the best examples is Dropbox, the application which seamlessly synchronizes our files across all of our devices. Without Dropbox, our workflow would become a lot less efficient, and we’d probably have more gray hair too. The only real downside to Dropbox is the limited amount of storage space we can synchronize.

bitcasa   Bitcasa: Gives Infinite Storage Space To Your Folders

Bitcasa plans to change that. In short, Bitcasa is a synchronization tool which gives infinite space to whichever folders you’d like. Unlike Dropbox, Bitcasa’s main focus is actually expanding your folder’s available storage space to a virtually unlimited amount rather than synchronization. This is achieved by simply connecting the folder to Bitcasa’s cloud, where you aren’t limited to a quota.

However, the service does come with a good amount of additional features, including synchronization, easy sharing, encrypted storage, and access via their website.

While Android and iOS applications are still in the works, BitCasa is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux to allow true access from any computer.

I’m currently using Bitcasa, and I must say it holds true to their promise of infinite storage

And what’s the catch? There’s no information on the site (unless I missed it) that details costs.

I don’t know about this. The majority of personal internet services would be bogged down by the initial upload. There will also be quite a bit of a lag when accessing files. I think personally that this might be a better idea in a few years when cloud computing becomes more mature and stable.

Sounds too good to be true. Better sign up before they jack up prices or cut features!

Tried Bitcasa, don’t want to use it anymore: slow, creates a huge AppData folder, synchronization with a bunch of small files that are not removed during uninstallation. It does not have an adequate indicator of the receiving files process (by the way, 4Sync with it’s 15Gb for free is a leader in my rating in this case so far). In addition, it has three types of synchronization: backup, sync and the infinite (unlimited amount, but only on one computer). But you can use them only separatedly.

It might’ve been paid in a past time, but when I signed up, there were no costs involved

There’s no information on the site. But gradually pricing details might be released, though web reports indicate it will be as cheap as $10 per month.

You bet! But I wonder how it’ll be for the free version if it does charge for the service later.

I usually leave my PC ‘idle’ when doing initial upload.

Yeah, I’m wondering too. How do they cover the infrastructure and server cost?

As of now no catch; let’s see as time goes and they get more users.
