Cloud Storage Services for Linux

Copy.com by Barracuda Networks

Copy.com References

Copy.com Personal Account Referral Bonus

  • At this time, copy.com provides a bonus 5GB of storage for each referral – up to a maximum of 25GB.
    • For each referral, that means:
      • 5GB additional storage for the person using the referral (see below note)
      • and also 5GB additional storage for the person making the referral.
    • The person who is using the referral must log-in with a Copy.com App to claim this extra storage for both parties.
  • So if you know someone already using Copy.com, then get a referral link to sign-up from them.
  • Otherwise, the below link can be used to get 20GB when you sign-up. (15GB for signing up + 5GB for the referral bonus.)
