Cloud storage may not be as reliable as you thought

“ Error (5xx) Something went wrong. Don’t worry, your files are still safe and the Dropboxers have been notified. Check out our Help Center and forums for help, or head back to home.”

This was the error message I got when I tried to access my Dropbox account last night. Was I worried? Not really. Was I unhappy and inconvenienced? Yes, at least a little bit.

Cloud storage plays a major part of my daily life. I travel frequently for work and spend approximately 40% of my working time on the road. I rely on my cloud storage provider to provide accessibility to the files that are most important to me and my work.

Last night’s Dropbox outage raises a big flag for people like me. I understand the risk of losing my files on Dropbox is low, but the fact that I could not access it when I needed to makes me think I do need to have a backup somewhere else.

OneSafeBox solves this problem with Mirror Technology.  Whenever you upload files through OneSafeBox not only are they encrypted (and safe from prying eyes), but the files are also uploaded across all of your linked storage accounts.  This reduces the chance that a user would face an issue like I did last night because the data is available from multiple, independent cloud storage accounts,

Simple, secure, safe. Just like that. With OneSafeBox it doesn’t matter if one cloud storage provider is having service interruption. My data is always available.
