Has anyone used spideroak cloud storage?


Hi everybody

I heard about http://www.spideroak.com cloud storage from the goinglinux podcast episode #215. They gave it a good review and they say it is secure and private because they don't store the encryption keys on their servers and no one including the staff can't see or access your files. So, if you lose your password, you're out of luck.

They offer a FREE 2GB storage as a starting size. I've never used cloud storage before because I don't trust them, but I might give this a try for storing non sensitive files like my bashscripts and ny firefox bookmarks, etc.

Do you have a specific question?

I use SpiderOak and like it well enough but find the interface for deleting files backed up to SpiderOak a bit slow and unwieldy. That's on version 9909; later versions may be better.

I've heard of SpiderOak as well as other backup solutions, however my choice of preference has always been Zoolz. Works perfectly well for my needs, and their unlimited plan is quite impressive; for only $3 / month I expected throttling and crappy usability but it proved the opposite so I definitely recommend a look
