You might want to read some reviews before buying this…
While I have never purchased their plan, I first heard of them when they were advertising on StackSocial (Neowin Deals is just a front for StackSocial). While there are many positive reviews out there, there are also many reviews from people who have had their lifetime accounts terminated with no refund due to a bot that automatically scans all uploaded files for copyrighted content. Rumor has it that this is all part of their business model - i.e. they know that a certain percentage of users will be caught out and trimming these unprofitable accounts helps keeps the service afloat.
This Reddit thread is an enlightening read:
And here is the message from their bot:
"Hi. I'm the Degoo Bot. I do automated work to ensure that Degoo remains safe and that everyone abides by the terms and conditions. Unfortunately I've detected that you've uploaded content which violates someone else's copyright. This violates our terms and conditions. Therefore your account will be terminated in 2 weeks.
If you feel I've done a mistake you're welcome to submit an appeal by clicking the button below. The appeal will be reviewed by a human. Be sure to submit as much detailed information as possible, to help verify that no copyright was violated.
Some of the files I detected were:
Dear God/Gods and/or anyone else who can help me (e.g. time travelers or members of superintelligent alien civilizations): The next time I wake up, please change my physical form to that of Finn McMillan formerly of South New Brighton at 8 years old and keep it that way forever. I am so sick of this chubby Asian man body! Thank you! - Chaul Jhin Kim (a.k.a. A Desperate Soul)
All the best.
The Degoo Bot"
Because of the automated nature of this detection, I'd be very wary of backing up even legally obtained copyrighted content - e.g. things like legally-obtained audiobooks, MP3s, Kindle books, GOG games, etc. You might be able to get away with encrypting everything into password protected archives though.
As taeken says, I've never gone from half chub to flaccid so quickly.
This product (and company) according to reddit and other reviewers is terrible.
Don't even need to read the reviews, every company offers lifetime of X until the money stops rolling in then they change the terms and you're (profanity).
Software and mobile data providers have been pulling that stunt for decades.
If you even hit 1TB I'd bet they'd have a whinge and limit your upload speeds.
If they get enough complaints and they're not a company with secondary products that will be negatively affected (like Microsoft and AWS), liquidate then start new company with new name using the same hardware and code.
If they are a company with secondary products, tell you to suck it, they're doing it anyway. Go sue them in Ireland.
