    Mega is formerly Megaupload right? Also I have read some articles about Mega ( and the conflict between the owner and his wife -_-). I prefer using Dropbox! Anyway I pay 30$/month for 8 Mb/s download and 1 Mb/s upload

    From what you're saying I can see that it is not intended for international users, so why use it? anything special about it ?

    Occasionally I upload some files on Google Drive, but first of all, I encrypt them using WinRAR and a strong password.

    Unfortunately, that's why I also prefer to use offline support for very important personal data.

    Megaupload was, according to Wikipedia, closed down on 19th of January 2012. One year after close down, MEGA was launched and it's under different company (Mega Ltd.) which is based in New Zealand.

    IMO sensitive data should be encrypted before uploading it to cloud or not uploaded at all.
    Well, 1 TB is pretty strong reason. :D
    Just kidding, I wouldn't use it either if it's not available on English or for users from other countries.

    I have downloaded Kryptel (giveaway version) to encrypt any sensitive file before uploading it! I think such generous offers make one feel that sth suspicious is happening

    MEGA would be the MegaUpload successor, but Kim Dotcom (the owner) moved on to MegaUpload 2.0 that would have been released this January, however its release was postponed for later due to "problems" (no specific launch date as of yet, but it should be soon).

    Right now, Kim does not own MEGA anymore (it was transferred to some questionable Chinese entrepreneurs or something), and he has recommended against using it for storing any files (apparently he doesn't trust the new owners).

    I'd still recommend MEGA for storing non-critical files though.

    Mega is fast but I will never trust it. Now I am thinking of Jottacloud and currently testing it

    Well, you can store all kind of files but if you want to send documents, I recommend that you encrypt them first.

    There is no 100% secure cloud service except the one you host yourself.

    Once you are able to create an account you can then change the language to English and you don't need Dutch IP either.

    I have a server I pay around.. 50$ a year for that I host content on when I need to transfer files.
    Not a big fan fo placing my data somewhere else as tomorrow it can all be gone due to TOS or company closing.

    I currently use Google Drive, Dropbox, and Onedrive. One drive I use for Uni where I can upload photos for the class projects etc, Dropbox I use for my photography, and Google drive I use for mainly for photos, because I have the Google Pixel I get unmetered Google Drive when it comes to photos.

    Last year i also created an account at transip.nl. They are offering 1TB space. And yes: the site is
    in Dutch only: thats a problem... And on the dutch site there is no link to the english/international
    version of transip.nl. ....

    Three days ago I started this thread in their support forum: https://www.transip.nl/forum/post/prm/5308

    In this thread I wanted to if know if this adress https://www.transip.eu/ is the official adress for european/international customers.The answer was: yes, this is the official site for international customers and this page is in english ....so guys we should't have no problems anymore with Dutch... ;) :D
