pCloud: Data transfer, collaboration and cloud storage software

pCLoud: Reviews - Secure Cloud Storage & Easy File Transfer

pCloud is a data storage and transfer software. 

What is pCloud? 
The pCloud solution allows you to save or transfer large documents via a link. The process is very simple. The files, backed up or sent, can be of any format and volume, as there is no size limit. Nevertheless, the sending remains fast because the data is stored on nearby servers. The pCloud's "rewind" function allows users to retrieve files that have been deleted by mistake. For the free version, the user can rewind up to 15 days and for the paid versions, 30 days. With pCloud Business, that's 180 days.

pCloud for data storage 
The storage quota depends on the chosen version. For the free version, the user has up to 10Gb available. For the first paid version, it's 500GB and up to 2TB with the Premium Plus version. This storage space is secured with a high level of encryption (256-bits).

The Premium and Premium Plus packages offer the storage of 500GB and 2TB respectively. The subscription could be monthly, annual or lifetime - payment in one go as if you were buying a hard drive. 

 The Family plan allows 2TB to be shared between 5 users, each with a separate account.  The subscription is Lifetime only - one-time payment. This package is also great for very small businesses. 

pCloud also offers the package for the companies - pCloud Business. Each user receives 1 TB of storage and pCloud Crypto, the digital safe. pCloud Business is available as an annual or monthly subscription. 

The benefits : 

  • easy to use
