With all the freebies this company has been giving away I don't think they will last very long..
They have an in app offer were they reward you with 500mb of free space for every ad you watch. It was 1gb when I first signed up.
Im up to 2tb of free space now Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Sounds like one of those quick money making scheme...until it closes down and all your data is gone with it.

Not sure how long they have being around but odds are they might close out after a couple months and you will end up losing your data. Better off either setting up your own network drive/cloud or use google drive/apple cloud just cause they are less likely to disappear on you.

If you do use this.. use it only as a backup.
That is... have another copy of your data somewhere else.

Might be useful as a NAS backup, because there don’t seem to be very many economical options for that.

I'd have to agree with others who say it'll only be good while it lasts. I've run numbers on cloud storage across pretty much every large provider out there while I was looking for a solution to backup several TB of photos and videos I've created over the years and Degoo is definitely losing money big time at that price, even if they're using the cheapest of providers out there for their back-end. Even if they weren't using something like AWS or B2 in the background and were buying their own drives and servers, it would be a total loss too because 10TB of data centre grade drives is far more than a two digit price tag to buy (closer to four digits).

Reviews of Degoo also regularly note data loss, and support that is hardly responsive at all (they were taken off my list early on when comparing providers). Wouldn't surprise me if it ends up like another Zools, where over time they'll suddenly start stripping away all the freebies the service offers and slowly increasing prices when they realize it isn't a sustainable business model.

You really think everyone who uses cloud storage goes to capacity? Even if they spent $300 on 10TB worth of drives, they're banking on the fact that most people don't have 10TB worth of stuff. Most people probably don't have 500GB worth of stuff they want to backup, so they're fitting 20 people on a drive.

Many valid concerns brought up by posters above, but I wonder why nobody mentioned the huge "elephant in the room", namely the fact that all your files uploaded to Degoo will be data-mined from the servers located in the People's Republic of China!!!

Anything on stack social or it's rebranded portals should be taken with a grain of salt when it says lifetime. You also have to treat the service like they will lose your data to hackers or just straight up data loss. I have a couple of lifetime purchases, but these were early on when companies were directly offering service rather than resellers like degoo.

Not right now, but your data will be in a few months.

I mean... anything you put in the cloud should be encrypted anyway.
Mine all you want. All you're seeing is garbage.

I have the 3tb lifetime deal. Been happy with the service. I use it as a 3rd backup for my encrypted bkups and syncing photos from phone (not encrypted by me).
As others have mentioned don't make this your primary.
