I have this :)

 

They have an app that does it all for you.  I point it towards my local installed onedrive folder and it backups my sync files on my main machine.

 

 

 

So in short, I save something to my onedrive on any device, it syncs back to my main machine at home (via onedrive) then zoolz program then backups the onedrive folder on my main machine, currently have it set to check for changes every 2 hours.  That way if i change something on my one drive I have a copy of it in cold storage on zoolz

 

 

 

Edit: on a side note I also use there G cloud mobile app to backup my phones/tablets.  I was able to get unlimited on that and makes it easy to jump phones (which i do a bit).

Also if you are worried about the information going to zoolz I use boxcryptor to encrypt my onedrive files and have zoolz pointed to the onedrive encrypted files.

I have been using Zoolz for nearly 3 years and find it highly reliable.. Wondering if existing customers can use this because lifetime is too good to be true!!

I can't confirm that but nothing stopping you doing a new account :P

 

 

 

Just note however 

 

Cloud storage is an incredibly valuable thing, and Cloud solutions don't get much better than Zoolz. With this lifetime of 500 GB of Instant, and 500 GB of Cold Storage, you'll have an extremely affordable place to safely store massive amounts of data. Access your Instant Vault quickly and easily, or just deposit data in Cold Storage if you know you won't be needing it for awhile. Zoolz know you want options, and Zoolz gives you options.

My account is 1TB cold storage, which kind of sucks now that they have split it for new accounts as the 500 / 500 is a bitter option

 

 

 

This is why onedrive is my "instant" as I have 1tb of space on that and zoolz is my backup.

The pain of uploading everything from scratch to a new account would be tremendous.. plus I just renewed my account for 12 months (in september).. And as usual with lifetime it never ends up being lifetime.. so something must be fishy. (I remind myself of the Malwarebytes lifetime license on Amazon)

Up to you :P

 

I have had the lifetime for a while now.

 

How much does it cost you for 12 months?

Chat with Zoolz:

 

yes, stack scoial is on of affilates ad the its 100% legit

 

What does lifetime mean? Will I need to pay extra after a year or a few years to upload new files or to download?

 

lifetime means you pay only once and there are no hidden costs

 

you will be paying for 1TB pure

 

And I'll be able to upload or download files in say 5 years?

 

yes ofcourse

ok, thanks

Arvis it's up to you if you get it or not

 

I have only had 1 issue with it in about 9 months and that was when it said I was out of room (only using 60gigs) quick chat to the help desk people and a right click and "resync" on the app in the system tray and it was fixed.

 

 

 

Apart from that 1 issue it is set and forget for me, just looking at my machine main and it last backed up at 7pm tonight (after doing my budget at 6pm).  It also has versions of backed up files :)
