Sorry if this reads like an ad; the link is a non-referral one. (I am broke though if anyone wants me to DM my referral link (10%) lol) I heard about it here and wanted to share for others that were interested by that original post but waiting for a sale.
Hello everyone I just figured I would share a PSA since filen.io’s black friday sale seems to be live now. Filen is another good opensource (all their client apps) alternative to google drive, dropbox, icloud, MEGA, etc.
I’ve been checking this company out for the past week after I saw someone asking here if it was trustworthy. It seems legit; fairly young company which explains why they still offer lifetime plans as they are growing.
Its only like 35 Euro for a 200GB lifetime client-side encrypted cloud storage with no bandwith limits. I despise subscriptions so hard to argue with that for me.
I plan on using this for my offsite backups mainly.
EDIT: For christ sakes folks, Lifetime obviously means the lifetime of the company as is the case for ANY “LIFETIME” PRODUCT. That’s been the legal meaning of the term when it comes to warranties and such for decades. Should I rename it “One Time Payment” so you guys can stop commenting that a company can go under? Newsflash if you pay monthly for dropbox and that company fails, same thing happens, except you’ll have paid hundreds or thousands over the years (depending how long we’re talking) for 200GB storage instead of a one time payment of 35 Euro. It will take ~13 months to break even with GDrive’s 200GB plan so as long as filen lasts more than 13 months you still come out ahead. They have also stated in their blog that lifetime plans will increase in price down the road as they are currently being partially funded by their monthly plans. I would expect they will likely increase in price to similar to what pcloud charges for lifetime plans? IDK don’t quote me.
