Zoolz, a new cloud storage service, popped up in our inbox with a very attractive offer. The service claims to offer free 100GB of storage for the first million users, with a great emphasis on security and file encryption. Of course, thanks to the great deal for early birds, there’s going to be a heavy rush at the door. Currently, some 100,000 people are already in queue, so it would be wise to get in there early.
Zoolz claims to bring a more modern cloud storage service – it can access files on external or network drives; it has no upload speed limit and there's no restriction on file size or type of data that can be used. In addition, the makers claim Zoolz “encrypts your files before they leave your machine, securely transfers your files, and stores them on encrypted servers using military grade 256 AES Encryption.”
The waiting queue for Zoolz
One of the neat features in Zoolz is the way photographs are displayed. When set up to do so, your photos will be automatically backed up. Photo previews of all camera photos, including RAW format one, can be seen in a centralised location. “Zoolz is smart enough to know when your drive is disconnected and once reconnected, Zoolz will resume with incremental backups even if the drive letter has changed,” a description on the website says. For ease of access, users can send files to their Zoolz account by simply right-clicking any file or folder on the PC.
