NewsDemon Usenet + Free Secure Online Storage

NewsDemon now offers 30 GB of free online storage with their Unlimited Plus account.  They are currently including the file storage with the Demon Deal – $10.95 unlimited Usenet with 50 SSL connections, free newsreader and 30GB secure online storage.

We had an opportunity to test out the storage feature and were pleased with the results.  The site is very easy to use.  There is no software to setup.  Files are uploaded and downloaded directly from the site.  Simply log in and view your library.  Store files in the default “home” folder or create additional folders.

We uploaded a couple files without issue.  Remember that most Internet connections are capped lower for uploads than downloads.  In our case we have 25 mbps downstream but only 1 mbps upstream.  For now you have to upload individual files.  That could be a drawback for some but you can always zip files prior to uploading them.  StorageNinja is working to add functionality for concurrent file uploads.

If you’ve used services like Carbonite or Mozy in the past don’t expect the same from NewsDemon storage.  It isn’t meant as a PC backup solution.  You don’t set folders or files to automatically sync.  In the same note you don’t have to download or configure a client.  Instead you simply log in anytime to upload or access files.  With up to 30 GB of free storage you can protect a lot of important files.
