Where do you - securely - store/backup/sync files in the cloud? Tresorit is my answer now!
Up until yesterday it would have been Dropbox, Google Drive and Box, but that has changed. Why? Because I was not so happy with the results anymore.
Over the years I used all the mentioned services to store important files and random stuff. Around 50Gib of data in total. All services are running on all my iOS/OSX. Most of the time they work, but all three have problems and hiccups from time to time. But I can live with that. Except of one thing that I always hated. I hate to restructure my files and folders and put them into the folders that all three services force you to use. If you want to get around this you have to start using Symlinks and other crazy hacks which I don't like at all.
So, time for change, time for improvements. The market for cloud storage is vast and it's not so easy to get an overview. So I started reading and found http://www.cloudwards.net/
that helped me to get into it.
What I am looking for is a service that focuses on security, is located in Europe (data centers and HQ!). A service that allowes me to add individual folders from my file system to the service and has applications for the devices I use. Ease of use, a good amount of free space and fair pricing when growing out are important too.
After almost one day of reading and comparing I settled with Tresorit, as it's the only service that can satisfy my needs.
Other services I looked at where BitTorrent Sync, HostEurope Cloud Storage, plain Amazon S3, SugarSync and more.
I will write more about my experiences in day to day work with Tresorit in about a week or so. So far, I'm impressed with the quality of the iOS/OSX apps, and the reliability of the service after uploading a large amount of files.
So if you are interested and want to check it out. Give it a try. 5Gib of free secure storage are not bad to have I guess.https://register.tresorit.com/download?mode=1&ref=Qhpbid
