Kim DotCom's newest venture: online storage locker with user-side encryption.

Free account has 50GB of space.

I wouldn't store any music or videos on there, but I'd consider using it to store all my schoolwork, audio lectures, etc.

I recognize that the cloud is the future (or present depending on where you work) but I'm still getting by fine with a USB drive.

I signed up. You always get a lot for space with new start ups.

Thanks

I signed up and got about as far as creating two folders. After that the site will not connect I suspect they are experiencing a lot of traffic.

I think I'll check back with Mega in a couple of weeks or even months. I knew that "client side" encryption is pretty slow (which makes the 50GB chunk not quite as attractive as it looks) but uploading even 2mb files is slower than death.

ETA: OK, files are now uploading and it's actually pretty speedy.
