This was informative. I used to use dropbox for photo sharing but switched to Binfer recently. Makes sending pictures to my clients much easier.

I went to the site to obtain a license, but as I went to install the program, it would simply stop during the activation phase and say "Failed to launch the program." I am running as administrator on Win 8.1.3 64-bit in an otherwise good-running computer. Does anybody have any suggestions?

I second harpo2448's comment, thank you Scuba for your input into the giveaway comments. It's very rare that developers bother to interact with the community.

I look forwards to using CloudBuckIt for the next year and if i'm happy will gladly continue to use it after the years subscription runs out. Thank you for giving thousands of community members the opportunity to try your software. :)

I just find that transferring data to/from the Cloud (and even between Cloud providers) is just so damn slow (and sometimes resource-intensive) - even directly with any Cloud provider - that it's just not worth it. Unless it's a small amount of data - too small to be useful. And that's without a one-year license, meaning I'll have to deal with it again in a year. If I was using it for business data, with a business budget and a Pro-Plan (and maybe an IT person to oversee the grueling process), then the Cloud would be pretty savvy. I used to grab up all of these offer, but I found that they weren't worth my time and effort (personally), so I've stopped. More important for me to be sure I have everything backed-up on HDs.

hmm trying to defend the software seems strange to me, if you need to defend it so strongly seems a bit dodgy to me, id rather have a spare hard drive for data never mind using clouds and there are many secure ways to make your data available on-line, id not be to comfortable giving a random company access to my personal data, no matter how many times you say you don't use or look at the data, you're going to have a hard job persuading people that, that is the case, im going to pass, but thank you for the offer, also when a years up what then, then you can look..
nice try but no thank you we have enough 'collecting personal data' companies already

U use DropBox and Wuala. I cannot see this product supports Wuala.
I have one of many Wuala folders inside my DropBox folder. So all files in that Wuala folder are also in my DropBox. I do not need any other product to support that.

If I understand the giveaway correctly, it transfers Wuala files directly to DropBox and vice versa. They need both of my Wuala and DropBox passwords. Just like I would give someone the keys of my bank vaults at two different banks to transport jewelry or valuable documents to and from these vaults. Without me.

I would be crazy to let someone else do that. Except my (future) heirs.

I am impressed by the number and variety of different services this utility supports (and which I use), so I gave it a try. I had some trouble with initial installation: after downloading the setup package, it immediately asked to download an update, which crashed on install several times before finally working (assume it was an unloaded resource that needed clearing out, but a more graceful and helpful error message would be better).
I have set up connections to a half-dozen services of different types and, for the most part, I am impressed. However, I've run into a problem where I cannot set up a connection to more than one WebDAV folder on the same server (CloudBuckIt says the account already exists, even though the username is different). Considering how many WebDAV accounts I use and how this utility would make them more useful, this is a bit disappointing. Hopefully, that gets sorted out in the near future.

The answer to all the asinine security paranoia is simple: Just store all your records of, ya know, yer drug deals, bank robberies, embezzlements & the like in your physical safe or safety deposit box. Only keep precious computer media items, family photos, & other such innocuous info on your computer and in your cloud backups. There now, wasn't that easy?

I wish everyone would calm down, Karl, I'm sorry to say this, but you are respected here and people seem to be following your lead. Firstly, I admit I have no need for cloud services, I have 7 computers in my home, two servers, and four laptops, 4 tablets and one smart phone. Space is always at a premium but I cannot use cloud for two very good reasons. 1) The DSL speed here is shocking. But faster speeds are on the way (4 years?) and 2) because I run a hosting business as well as a few websites, I prefer to keep my files private, mainly because I run more than one site which can be considered anti Government (in New Zealand) and the new spying laws are way too intrusive.

Having said that, I have always supported the underdog... ALWAYS!

So its a small company, so what? Microsoft was small one, right, so was Google. This cloud service isn't a new idea as orthers are also offering it as well, some for free. Let me make some observations here;

I am appalled at some of the comments I have seen here today, a small company just finding its feet and you quibble over its privacy policy. I don;t see any of you attacking Microsoft or Google who have admitted facilitating spy agencies to steal your data! I don't see anyone attacking Microsoft for having the ability to snoop to see what is on your computer IF you use Windows... oh, you don't know about that? Its started with Vista... a professor found the code that allows them to snoop.

A small company that is unable to protect itself from the likes of the Spooks at the NSA or FBI would need to protect itself, big deal, anyone that hides their plans for world domination on the Cloud gets what is coming to them, a nice long stay at Gitmo. Right? :)

The point being, if its super private, keep it on your computer, if you have a file that you want to keep, and its not private, send it to the cloud... free up some space on your computer.

But to not use this offering is silly... based on the reasons I have seen some give. If we do not support the newcomers, then we are stuck with what Microsoft (etc) gives us, and they ARE insecure. The worlds software market, and worse, the worlds internet software market, is starting to be dominated by the big companies, and that is bad news for us, especially if you value your freedom and privacy.

But most of all, the authors of this software have been very active here today, when have we ever had a company/author so willing to be questioned by the masses of the greedy selfish software users?

What has happened here today is the very reason by other companies/people will shy away from offering their software here as a giveaway! Sure, you can see it as your job to ask the questions, but BE FAIR and treat the author with RESPECT!

You are attacking him when you have no right to do so, none of you are asking questions, rather, you are accusing or making assumptions. You do NOT have the right to do that. This offering is also a perfect example of by that stupid thumbs up or thumbs down voting system must GO! This is the kind of software you cannot test in any time less than a week, or a month, but within minutes, most of you already THINK you know what its like, probably based on the comments, and that is NOT fair to the author/company.

Scuba, thank you for being brave enough to front the masses and on behalf of the decent 'reviewers' here, I thank you for your generosity today. (now watch the masses turn on me and vote this down to negative numbers)

Most people who vote here are being selfish, NOT fair.

Scuba I admire that you don't just lose your cool with some of these people! Went to your site looks wonderful but I can't get installed one of my anti program keeps interferring!
I will try next to download from your site.

Welcome to our unique software distribution initiative. The software product will be presented in its full functionality, without any limitations save for those mentioned in Terms and Conditions. All GOTD vendors hope to receive decent feedback every time. Constructive criticism of the software, either positive or negative, is welcome. One of the main benefits is a chance to get quality feedback from thousands of visitors. It will include comments from ordinary PC users and professional reviews written by software geeks and bloggers. Customers may see imperfections while developers see unique points only.

Joining GOTD forum is available for everybody.


FROM TODAY'S GOTD COMMENTERS (ALSO EDITED):

THANKS for the chance to try this for free. Thank you for the giveaway, even if I am not convinced, yet, to apply for it. Thanks for keeping up with today’s discussion. I wish more developers would interact with the GOTD audience on the days when their offer is active. Please do not take offense at the comments as GAOTD caters to a discriminating crowd with a variety of opinions and levels of expertise. Don’t let the negative response bother you. GOTD is full of people who get a thrill by hitting the thumb-down button. It’s the highlight of their day! Please continue to answer the questions that are raised in a professional and honest way.


FROM TODAY'S DEVELOPER (ALSO EDITED):

This offer is very good and you are more than welcome to contact our support for all kind of questions. It’s just surprising for us to see the result of giving this offer. Just to make sure there is no misunderstanding:

Thanks for the feedback! We have released a new version already today.


FROM ME:

Would that it went like this all the time. No telling what innovation might be presented here.

Impartially yours,

According to Karl - I 'IS' happy with the status-quo for this. I almost wish people that write ads &/or web pages, would actually hire someone who: 1) doesn't turn off their spellcheck, 2) gets someone who is 'fluent' in the language they are editing - to ACTUALLY EDIT, & 3) (Last) Proper spelling & GRAMMAR were important in my day (little over 60 now) & BEFORE I want to either store my important data or trust some code-writer who murders the English language (& YES I have written & repaired code in 5 (FIVE) different languages (Basic, Fortran, etc.)) to keep what I store - safe! Hackers depend on mistakes to find openings & I am truly sorry, your web site & some of these comments today, did not inspire me to download the product. I guess that is why I have redundant backups & over 14 TB of external drive space (& adding more as necessary) to store my data. Again truly sorry, but thanks for the offer & thank you GOTD.

First off, thanks to Scuba for your responses. I use K9 mail for my all in one android email access, this app would be nice for all my cloud accounts.

Which brings me to the next reply.. One thing to remember, anyone who works in IT knows DO NOT store sensitive documents on any 3rd party off site storage farm that is not owned or maintained by the corporation that owns it. Those that do have no room to vent when it's compromised.

And, of course, rather than upload what you believe to be sensitive documents, upload your photo albums. They're 'sensitive' in another way - your shots can't be repeated ever again. Precious.

It is just an application to manage a user's various cloud storage sites.
That is all.
Of course you can use cloud sites without it.

Although I have Dropbox and Google Drive, they are almost empty.
There is nothing worthwhile stealing in there and I got no personal data collection worries.
It is just that I do not see much use for Cloud based storage.
When 2 TB of portable hard disk is so cheap.

The 2 reasons for not adopting this software are:
It is a 1 year license. So after 1 year what do you do?
There is not much need for it if you have only 1 or 2 cloud based storages.

There is no need to worry about collecting personal data by this software.
We are ordinary people, not VIPs or celebrities or powerful politicians.
No one is interested in our personal data.
That problem (if any) is already inherent in the various cloud storage sites.

Most routers these days allow you to hook up a external hard drive and activate that port as a cloud. I use the RT66ac by asus and does just that. I can expand as needed and it's under my roof, my control. I have a WDMyCloud and a Netgear NAS box with four 4tb drives installed as my media server, backups and cloud drives I provide to my kids (college). You can even plug additional drives into them and share just that drive as a cloud. I'm waiting for the firmware updates so I can start deploying 6tb drives. Yes, I run HD movies off my NAS box and at 11gb in size per movie, I eat up lots of real-estate.

Ric, you share the same erroneous thought as my husband. He is under the belief that his data is so uninteresting that nobody would want it anyway. There are problems with this philosophy:

1). People are not searching you personally. They use sweeping software to take in everything they possibly can and then use the computer to pull and combine certain kinds of data. Things by themselves seem so inconsequential, but pieces of seemingly random data can easily be combined into some useful information.
2). Add to this the tendency that people are very slack about security measures, such as secure, random passwords, updating antiviruses, learning about and maintaining a firewall, etc., so you can be sure there is plenty of random info to put to devious use. These people use their computers to study yours, and when they successfully get into it, they will set up your computer as a zombie to spread their useful information to less than legal counterparts. Some computers have even been involved in illegal pornography and other sex trade stuff. With all the sluggish, crashing computers out there, one can only wonder what they are doing in the background...

Just Google what I've shared and you will find that I am not exaggerating, and, in fact, you will find the situation much worse than I have outlined.

Carotdav says "By default, passwords are saved with no encryption." WHAT!

Reply   |   Comment by Bob Byrd  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

That's for the local machine it's installed on via a text file as the website explains, and tells you to use the non-default Master Password feature if your PC is used by others should the need to lock down those passwords becomes an issue, in which case it just gets decrypted before actual use.

As a unrelated comparison, I use Rainmeter with a skin that fetches the quantity of unread emails, and my email with password are also stored in a plain text INI file that I modified myself.

For another example, Firefox browser will show you all of your passwords it was told to remember which anybody can view for all websites when you don't tell Firefox to use a Master Password.

For the above examples, no other users have access to my physical PC, so it's not an issue that I need another layer of security by using a Master Password but your needs may be different.

In what form is the information sent to the various cloud services? "In the clear" or is there "pre-Internet" encryption (PIE) so that all that is stored on any server is peusdo-random noise?

If one of the cloud providers gets a letter from a gov't letter agency, what information is given? The blob of psuedo-rando noise or the actual files?

The more I see how effortless it is for hackers to smash through the security walls of highly secure organizations, corporations and governments, the less I want any of my information stored in "the cloud." "The cloud" is not secure and never will be. Give me mt data on my device in encrypted storage and I'm a happy camper. Collaboration? Only in real time, on personally managed computers with explicit permission at the time of connection. A little bit of a hassle, yes, but well worth it.

Thanks for keeping up with today's discussion. I wish more developers would interact with the GOTD audience on the days when their offer is active.

In your comment, you mention "...New features, new storages and all changes coming the next 12 months..."

To be clear (as this question always comes up), what happens AFTER the "free 1-year license" period? Any (or all) features stop working? Or free update eligibility simply stops while the program continues to fully function? Or...?

Please clarify, and thanks for introducing many of us to this category of software applications.

Reply   |   Comment by harpo2448  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+21)

Hi - thanks for the feedback!
We are thinking about 2 different scenarios...
There could be a new offer for the users signing up today when it's close to expiration date - we talk small amount which is like 1-2 dollars a month (maybe 15 dollars for a year) becuase we treat our users well. The money is used to provide the security we do as well as a good application.
Another one could be to leave the accounts open and free afterwards to use CloudBuckit - but without software updates.

Notice that users can get their account deleted any day. :o)

Soon the mobile apps will be released and all is connected with the single sign on.

We are just pretty surprised about how users react here in at this site - pretty negative. We give a pretty good offer. We are not a giant company providing info to NSA or something....we provide a service we love to use ourselves. Off course - if users don't like our application...then it's all fair.
We have good intentions only and have many many happy customers already - yes also many signed up already today to get this offer which is great...but it's just surprising for us to see the result of giving this offer...

not helpfull? It's the honest answer.
We are looking into providing a good solution/offer when it's close to expiration date for users.
One year free is a good offer. It takes much man-power to keep a application running with the features and security aspects we want.

Scuba, everyone that offers a product or service believes they are offering a good and valuable service/product. Your negative feedbacks can be useful feedback. Read the comments and see what people are complaining about - don't just react negatively or defensively. Keep an open mind. If you want to sell a product or service, listen to your prospective customers.

Why all the discussion about what happens after one year?

isn't the point of GAOTD offers to allow us to TRY a full version? As it stands today, without future updates or support?

"non-perpetual, and non-transferable right to install and run the Services on single computer..."

Then, if like and use it, to buy the next version or for our next computer.


I agree with the cloud and security concerns discussed and don't mind seeing them in today's comments. Personal choice whether and where back up.
I'm on external hard drive with little use of cloud myself, and have LOST data due to hard drive failures, or in database software that is no longer made so couldn't get to new computer. First external [Iomega] was off 25 pin serial -- so have no way to access that on today's USB only laptop.

However, it has gotten really handy to be able to write a note, jot expense, photo receipt, on older phone. Needing to get that info into desktop to spreadsheet or accounting program ... or even PHOTOs off phone. Have to have a cloud.

From the discussion, note totally sure what this software will do for me.
Downloaded and will try for my self.

Scuba - THANKS for your answers. For English being your second language, had no problem understanding, even with the slight spelling and grammar mistakes.

With the two largest cloud operators - Micro$oft and Google - openly admitting, and stating in their TOSs, that they have the right to snoop through anything anyone uploads ... I've no use for the cloud at all.

However, should anyone offer cloud software guaranteeing me the security I desire (that no one can access anything I upload without my permission or a court order) I will gladly pay for it. (I do not expect such to materialize since even encryption software is "requested" by the government to contain backdoor access "for security reasons". What about OUR security?)

Reply   |   Comment by JGF  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+34)

I agree with you JGF. This is the human life today (and for a while, now): you are always at risk in your home and outside your home because there is no 100% security and safety. That is applying also to your computer (malware gets into your computer to steal or destroy/"vandalize" or both) and once you take something out your home, somebody could see it and take it also, so is with the info/data/files/etc. you decide to share outside your computer, even when unknowingly you are doing so.
The so called security and privacy for the common people does not exist, is just tolerated with the help of some laws, for a while, until the so called "national security" is invoked and no other law has power against this claim. These people that create such laws, against the people and not for the people, also gave them selves "political immunity" like "human immunity" means nothing to them, because you can always be/become (sometime in the future) a threat like a "terrorist" (using a "modern" word) but they are not and they can not ever become one, even when they are using our tax money to plan and start wars. Of course, was is far worst than terrorism because it is like a hole lot bigger terrorism that develops on a more wide area than a "common" terrorism action. But in their mind, the terror they produce is OK (?) with the common people employed as military and the common's people taxes.
About people's secrets ... almost every human has the same understanding of what a secret/private things means, and almost every human has the same type of secrets and doing almost the same things/actions to conceal them, because they have the same common life with the same common actions during the span of their entire life. When your secret is a secret that a lot many people have, with no relation to you, it is a common secret and does not look like a secret anymore, does it? A supposition it is not the same with being certain ... but common life and common action and common people ... is a certain thing. Common is not bad or sad/dull/dim/washy/dingy/etc. but the life of Universe we are living in.
We should just have a common sence/good sence when we are doing things/actions, and then, even our, common secrets, cannot hurt anybody, includig ourselves. That's the "big" secret. ;)
I hope this helps somehow.

PS: Bank, Insurance and Health Data are excluded from this logic, since it is not common data but real idividual data.

Are you attached to the Internet?.... Obviously! In which case any Government can pretty much see anything anyway especially with a court order... the days of absolute privacy are long gone. The idea is that you use the technology to the best advantage you can and there is definitely space for Cloud and therefore Cloud Management products such as the offering today. If you don't want to use them - don't.
Of course if anyone has something to hide from the Government !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! better go find yourself a cave somewhere and hole up for the rest of your life.

However, should anyone offer cloud software guaranteeing me the security I desire...
Would you trust them? :)

Even big, well-known companies only get my documents if they are documents I would not have any problems sharing with the world, anyway.

Actually I use quite a few of the cloud programs such as Cloud Drive, Google Drive One Drive, Box etc etc .. - in fact I don't know where I would be without Dropbox (https://db.tt/Pa6Q6fb), which is the simplest of them all.
I actually found something similar (but free) to this GOTD "giveaway" a few weeks and installed it. However it had a couple of drawbacks. Firstly it did not cater for many of the clouds I was using and worse than that it slowed the machine down horrendously, possibly because it was trying to communicate with all these clouds continuously. I am not a geek so I don't know exactly what the problem was. Anyway, I uninstalled it and machine went back to normal. Unfortunately I can't remember what it was called, but it certainly was free and not a one year subscription.
To those who don't want to use cloud systems let me just explain. I don't put anything contentious, like bank details, or passwords into the cloud systems but I do run a tiny, tiny business and when a disaster struck, whilst I was on holiday in Spain, I was able to access my data from my holiday base, so that very few people knew and instead of fielding hundreds of calls when I returned home two weeks later - I was up and running within a couple of hours. I also find them increasingly useful for sharing data to collaborate with my more geeky friends, wherever they happen to be.

Are u able to upload a working copy of c: drive programs to download in case of problems?

Yes of course ... you can upload ANY file you would normally copy to a drive attached to your PC. You would need all the same relevant details for it work on download of course.

just my opinion but storing my "stuff" on someone elses computer just never seemed like a good idea to me.

Jeffrey: That's why I have 3 external Hard drives in my own "home cloud." Though I may use Dropbox to store my favorites or inconsequential other files. :)

Clas, I completely agree with you. I perform a complete backup of my system at least once a week. I immediately backup any important data on to a password-protected thumdrive which makes it portable if I have to use it on another system and I don't have to worry if it becomes misplaced.

There is certainly nothing wrong with backups to external hard drives. But don't dismiss the cloud storage as not being useful. Suppose the disaster that you face is not computer related. There could be a fire, flood, earthquake, etc. There are any number of scenarios that could destroy not only the computer but all backups as well. Cloud storage is a definite alternate storage solution.

Reply   |   Comment by dadams  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+23)

dadams, and the cloud provider could be destroyed, too. How deep do you want to get into possibilities? Much greater possibilities of data interception when sending to the cloud as opposed to sending to my USB drive, wouldn't you say?

Reply   |   Comment by Jim  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Personally I think cloud storage is another excellent level of safety when backing up data, and should always be one of the methods you use to back up data. I usually create four levels of backup, 1 ... on extra hard drives installed to the computer, 2.... on external hard drives, 3 .... on Blu-Ray and DVD discs and 4 ..... cloud storage, with a further fifth level for my video and photographs which I keep on SD cards.

I've lost three external drives totalling over 5TB over the last three years, two were damaged while moving house and one I plugged in the wrong power supply and it fried the disc. I lost a lot of unreplacable data including around a thousand family images from a previous vacation and some video that I'd not yet got around to backing up on to Blu Ray discs (I usually create at least three to four back ups and since losing the images and video keep all of my images and video on the SD cards they were originally captured on), but sometimes life gets in the way and I forget to back up data immediately. I now buy new SD cards for my camera instead of deleting images so that I have another backup of my photo's (due in part to the relative cheapness of SD cards). There will never be a 100% safe way of backing up digital data.

With respect to Jims reply to dadams, I thought cloud storage providers always created two backups for that very situation (then they can re create the backup if one of the servers was destroyed).

Finally, common sense dicates that you should never back up sensitive data to cloud storage. :)

You must have really important "stuff."

Me? Books, music, movies. Having 15 free gigabytes here and 10 free gigabytes there frees up a lot of space on my hard drive.

Not everyone is uploading all their passwords, financial records and naked selfies.

yes multcloud.com is a great alternative.

We use direct transfers between storages - so we don't use some servers in middle to store files during transfers.

To Bernice... I have had a look at MultCloud and it seems to support 17 Clouds ... including all the main ones like DropBox, Google Drive, One Drive Box etc....... I assume it adds others as time goes on.

Installed without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.

The installer lists a license agreement with some points, I do not like. I did not find anything about privacy statement or security issues, but:

Remember that this a a one years license. You enter your data over an unsecure transmission - not https...

And her we are:
A company without name and address:

We love what we do and is having a great time while doing it!
"

Does anyone really believe that I give my cloud logins to an unknown company - without name and address. Over a unsecure transmission with such privacy statements??

Call me paranoid...

I wanted to start the program, with is stored under "roaming" - does some unusual things during installation.

but the program won't start:

Just a quick thank you for your regular input on this site, and the quality of your comments. I have only been visiting this site for a few months, and as a result, have bought several software packages I have found really useful to me on the special offers that are often given to GOTD users.
Many people do not read the conditions properly when installing software, (or any other conditions such as opening an online bank account for that matter), though GOTD users seem more savvy than most, so the comments and observations you make, together with a few other contributors who regularly post here, are of considerable help myself and I suspect to many others.
My thanks again (I never download before reading what you have to say!)

The application has gone through test of virustotal.com and is 100 % clean.
The SRM.exe does some registration use for features in applicaiton. It has nothing to do with spyware and stuff like that.

Our program is clean and good.

Fair you are all concerned becuase the software marked floats with bad software with spyware - but we are clean.

So to clarify: our data will never reside on your servers; it just uses your website when it is in transit from one of our locations to another, right?

Also: can this be used to transfer from one user account to another user account on the same site, or just from one user site to another? Example: box user 1 to box user 2, or just something like box user 1 to dropbox user 1?
