'SurDoc': 100GB Free Cloud Storage For One Year

Dennis Faas's picture

Storing files in the cloud is becoming the 'go to' method for backing up important data. But what if the 2 gigabytes (GB) of storage offered by Dropbox or the 7GB offered by SkyDrive just isn't enough?

New service 'SurDoc' has an answer: 100GB free cloud storage. However, that's only for the first year.

Dropbox, SkyDrive Storage Limits Disappointing

There are a number of cloud storage services on the web these days, but most have pretty modest limits on how much you can store for free. Dropbox's limit is a paltry 2GB, with additional room running at least $9.99 per month.

Box and SugarSync offer a bit more free space with a limit set at 5GB.

Microsoft improves on that by offering 7GB of SkyDrive storage for free, though 20GB is available to users of the Office 365 program or those willing to pay $10 per month. (Source: microsoft.com)

Google offers one of the best deals right now. Its Google Drive service makes 15GB of free cloud storage available to users.

SurDoc: 100GB Storage, First Year Free

But even 15GB might not be enough. If that's the case, then it's worth checking out SurDoc, a new service that offers users 100GB of free cloud storage for the first year.

Once that year is up, users are asked to enter a credit card number and pay $30 on an annual basis. That's still dramatically less than the cost of accessing comparable storage limits through Dropbox or SkyDrive.

If you choose to take SurDoc up on the offer, you'll be asked to enter an email address and password (no credit card data is required until that first year is up).

There are even some enticing bonus offers: get a friend to sign up, and you'll get an additional 10GB of storage for free. Share files with someone else and you'll have 1GB added to your total.
