Box.net – Virtual Storage Space Service March 3, 2006Posted by Ced in Online, Services.
Box.net is a virtual storage space for your computer files. By signing up for their free unlimited trial 1GB account, you can have your select documents, photos, music files, video clips, etc. available online. If you need more storage space, you can avail of their paid packages (starting from US$4.99 / month for 5GB).
We want you to sleep soundly at night, knowing that no matter what happens to your computer, your files will always be safe. We want you to be able to travel across the globe on a whim without having to worry about taking cumbersome storage devices with you. We want you to be able to easily and instantly share files that are important to you with others who feel the same way. And we don’t want you to have to rack your brain or break the bank to do so.

Some of the features and benefits of the service:
- Save backup copies of important files
- Move documents between your computers
- Setup sub-accounts for multiple user access
- Store photos and other important memories
- Share files or create online photo galleries
Coming soon (as early as next week) is a Desktop Synchonization tool.
Having your data easily accessible online not only gives you convenience, but also provides peace of mind that you have copies of those important files whenever, wherever. PCs crash, optical media get scratched, portable drives get misplaced, but your essential data would only be an internet connection away.
