Many new services are offering free storage online space. If you’re thinking to feed your hunger for more online storage space, then FlipDrive offers 5GB of free cloud storage space, plus some more useful features. Now you can also store your files, contacts and bookmarks in the cloud using FlipDrive.
Yes, the age of storing digital content on the cloud is here. Its not just about uploading and downloading important files, but its also about other content like your contacts and browser bookmarks. The addition of these two features is something that makes FlipDrive standout from the crowd.
Upload Files, Bookmarks and Contacts to Cloud
Sign up and then you’ll be able to login and the first page that you’ll be able to see is the start page. Click on “My Drive” to start uploading files from your computer. From here, you need to click on the “upload” button and then click on “Upload files” if you want to upload a single file or click on “Bulk/Folder upload” to upload an entire folder. A new pop-up will be displayed and from here you can browse and select the file/folder. You need to have Java installed for uploading files.
You can also create new folders as per your wish. Cut/move the file to any folder, rename, delete, share, view properties and settings. The online web interface is somewhat slow to perform different operations. Also there’s a need for placing the “upload” button to a place from where its easily accessed, instead of going to the “my drive” page every time.
If you think that 5GB is not enough, then click on “Get more storage” link from the start page. There are three different type of account options:
- Personal account: 10GB for $4.95 per month
- Pro account: 50GB for $9.95 per month
- Business account: 100GB for $19.90 per month
You can also opt for yearly subscription, which offers discounted price and also 2 more months of free subscription.
If you want more free storage space on FlipDrive, then you can refer this service to friends. For every friend who joins, you will get up to 500 MB of bonus space and up to a maximum limit of 10 GB. To refer friends, head over to the start page and click on “Refer friends now” button. In the next page, enter the email address of your friends and their name (optional). If your friends too join FlipDrive, then you’ll get a bonus of 500MB space.
You can also insert description to every file that you upload. Click on that small drop-down button and then on “Properties” to add description to your file. Click on “Get direct link” to send a direct downloadable link to your friends but this feature is only available in paid accounts. Click on “share” to share the file with anyone, by entering their email address.
Click on “Contacts’ and you can start adding information about your contact. Add all the information like first and last name, nickname, company, job title, birthday, gender, personal and work Email, IM network, phone number, group, etc. This means you can save the person’s detail in the cloud using this feature and you can access this information from any computer, since it is stored online.
FlipDrive also allows you to safely store and organize your browser bookmarks and favorites online so you can access them anytime – anywhere. Share your favorites with anybody or keep them private. You are in full control of your data. To add bookmarks, click on the “bookmarks” tab and then on “Add site” button. Enter the website address, name and notes.
