Fast, easy online file storage ... with excellent security *or* sharing

Pros

The pCloud servers are fast. Uploading is fast, downloading is fast. That's one of the main prerequisites for a good online storage platform, isn't it?

pCloud isn't a *backup* platform, it's a storage platform for selective storage and retrieval of files.

You can have perfect end-to-end encryption via pCloud Vault. You pay extra for this, but when you have this, not even pCloud has access to whatever you put in the Vault.

You can also share files from pCloud - and this is the feature that I use most often. I host video files in my pCloud Public area, presented through a video management service and then embedding them on my website. pCloud is fast, and I don't have to worry about how much storage space I'm using. Sure, you could use DropBox but you'd be paying more for the storage space you get.

Finally, I also like the fact that pCloud is not an American company because of the legal & data access concerns that can come up for non-Americans like myself, my business, and some of my current clients.

Cons

If pCloud believes there is copyright infringement with any of your files that are not in the Vault - whether in your regular "mostly-private" area or the Public area - they'll block off your account and they won't tell you why.

I had this happen with one of my pCloud accounts. I had a lot of anxiety from that experience, and thankfully after a very thoughtfully-worded letter (explaining why I didn't think there was any copyright infringement in my files) *faxed* to their legal representative, I got that account - and access to the files there - reinstated.

Part of my frustration was in their inability and/or unwillingness to tell me what content was deemed problematic by either (a) their automatic "sniffing" algorithms or (b) someone's complaint. How do you defend yourself against an accusation when you aren't given any specifics at all about the accusation?

So beware of that possibility.

pcloud for Education Buissness

I already moved all my data, documents and files into the pCloud. Thanks to the Restore feature i stopped making endless backups and different version of the documents. I already planning on moving all my personal data into the pcloud too.

Pros

I like that it is one time payment, insted of subscription model. It make me feel safe, that my data is secure even when i would, for example, go bancrupt and couldn't afford payment. Restore feature is perfect, it saved my bussiness few times, it makes my data storage stress-free. Synchronization is instant and the access managment is easy and intuitive. I tried a lot of data managment software and so far pCloud is the number one without any doubt. I use it on Mac, on Windows, and mobiles.

Cons

I would like it to make some kind of document editing/collaborating inside of pCloud Drive. Other than that i really can't think of any disadvantages of this software.

Alternatives Considered

Dropbox Business, OneDrive and Google Drive

Reasons for Choosing pCloud Business

one-time payment instead of subscription model, better synchronization, restore function, non-problematic log-in.

Reasons for Switching to pCloud Business

It worked without any troubles on all my devices, it was faster, cheaper. Access managment was perfect, while in alternatives products there was constant troubles with that. I was amazed with the Restore option, especially with restoring exact time version of a file.

pCloud Business review

It was another lesson in you get what you pay for. Cheap and not good

Pros

Easy to use, just does not do the job. Concept and format is good, operationally flat out bad. Look elsewhere

Cons

I hate to take issue with so many, but pCloud is nowhere near as good as these reviews suggest. For months, I have been working with pCloud support to load a full set on my folders & files to their server. After much effort and may days and even more emails we got the data loaded. Then it all fell apart. While trying to sync their server locked up and could no longer upload files. Their solution was to tell me to not load any of my photographic data as their system was not designed to load those file types. Note that there was no time in the buying process where that is explained. Note too, that their system had uploaded the data initially but then could not sync. Next pCloud support said wait for the new release and all would be fine. The release came and NOTHING improved. This is all before we even talk about the number of DAYS it took to upload the data.
I did request a refund of the money spent on the lifetime subscription and that simply fell on deaf ears. No question but what it is easy to use, it simply does not work as it should.

Response from pCloud

Steven, clearly you didn't have a good experience with us. I'm sorry for this and would like to apologize.

I've checked your support ticket and the main issue is trying to sync hundreds of files (cache files!) which have been changed every minute. I doubt any sync program can handle this, but anyway, we've refunded in full your payment, you've made 6 months ago.

Take care,
Andrew

Default Backup Use - Great Lifetime Deals for huge storage!

This is a really cheap solution to provide temporary upload/download folder for internal sharing or with the client. It can be used for backup for other cloud services but the reliability or unknown issues of corrupted files scares me. Support do not provide too much care into the integrity of the data storage. The best thing about pCloud is the lifetime large storage space with the less worry of having default risk compared to some of the smaller players.

Pros

1. Low price for a huge lifetime access cloud storage2. Simple and easy to use interface3. Available on Mobile and work like a file explorer. 4. Easy to create share folder/file links

Cons

1. Files loaded into pCloud risked to be corrupted2. Upload Speed periodically becomes very slow especially for the mobile version3. Mobile Version: During "Share via" upload to pCloud, there is no "search" function to help locate the specific upload folder. This makes it hard when there is many folders within a folder (need to scroll up and down and eyeball for the correct folder).4. Encryption require further subscription5. Unfriendly API

Alternatives Considered

Dropbox Business, OneDrive, Google Drive and Box

Reasons for Choosing pCloud Business

For all the alternatives (Dropbox, onedrive, Box, Google Drive), it is mainly due to price.For important storage, we still continue to use the more reliable cloud storage but for temporary or internal sharing, we have migrated to pCloud. We still use pCloud as a secondary backup.

The best app to back up and store your files :)

I just love pc cloud everyone on the market should own one already! As now you can extend till 10tb of storage that great!

Pros

Since I putted my hand on this app I stoped using wetransfer for file transfers! So glad I have this as my phones and computers have an automatic back up! The best is available on iPhone as a cloud to use so I use it instead of Apple iCloud!

Cons

I wish they could have the way to record a video directly to pc cloud!

A friend in the cloud

My experience has been wonderful, I have had no problems, I have been able to recover some lost or deleted files from my computer thanks to the fact that it keeps a file history for 30 days where it allows recovering from individual files to complete folders.

Pros

For more than 4 years I have kept my files synchronized with pCloud, I have never had problems, I have kept the files synchronized on 3 computers and backed up securely at the moment.
pCloud is like an hard drive when you installing it is added as one more drive in my computer.

Cons

It does not integrate an online file editor as well as Google Drive that allows you to edit Word files online without opening them on the computer.

The savior of all our cloud storage problems

My experience has been simply incredible. It's like I've found the perfect partner for my digital life. From the moment I started using it, I realized that I have never experienced such a seamless and efficient way to store, sync, and collaborate on my business files before.

Pros

I absolutely loved everything about this platform. I can't pick one thing, it's just too fantastic to be true. Its friendly and easy-to-use interface, its unlimited storage space, its ability to sync and collaborate on business files... I'm just speechless how amazing it is. A dream come true!

Cons

Oh sure, you have to find something negative in the midst of so much perfection, right? Well, I guess what I liked the least about it is that I just can't think of anything negative. But, if I really have to struggle to find something less shiny, I'd say that maybe the 30-day free trial period is a bit too generous. I mean, what if I'm already so enamored with this platform on day one? Do I have to wait another 29 days to pay and enjoy all its amazing features? It's torture! But hey, I guess that's the small price to pay for so much power in the cloud.

The local sync tool keeps crashing on 2 out of 3 workstations

Trying to switch away from Egnyte - due to their brain child move of using their proprietary file structure in OS X - outside of the finder (which means you cannot search for files or restore from time machine).
It feels like even more pain will be coming my way, trying to deal with these guys.

Worked fine the first day on my admin machine. Trying to install the client on any work station in our office proved impossible. It keeps crashing.

I read that in another review and brushed it off as a laughable comment, assuming they would have that under control by now. But nope. Boy, was I wrong. This is a sad joke. Don't waste your time or money on the p-cloud.

Pros

intuitive to install and set up. Keeps local files in user defined sync copy.

Cons

keeps crashing within seconds on multiple work stations. hence completely unusable. Also they have 4 support team members on staff for world wide support and you cannot get anybody on the phone or in a chat.

Easy to use, quite easy to configure, great to use on several systems.

Access to all fotos I take with my smartphone and my camera.

Pros

I use it to document the preparing of my new house and the process of moving there. So I deal mainly with fotos.
Upload via smartphone or PC works great ... and fast. I can create a folder structure of my liking and change it as often as necessary. Copying and moving within the folders is no problem, neither is selecting several items , once you get the hang of it. I, too, tried the backups of dropbox and my google account, but deactivated it again. It will take space I need for other things.
Installing all apps was easy on computer and smartphone. After setting everything up, i.e. automatic upload from my smartphone, defining the filetypes etc. I was set and more or less forget about it.
pCloud received my fotos, I distributed them to my folders and created new ones every time I was at the house. It will be the most important documentary of the process and I am confident, that the service will be available for many years to come.
Just before writing this review I went through the pCloud-structure again and discovered some music I uploaded more than half a year ago. It is playing in the background now. Nice.
Having tried several cloud systems before for uploading my stuff, I found pCloud very easy and comfortable to use and will use it for the time to come or until it folds - which I hope, never happens.
By the way, I am a free user, having granted the 50 GB during an introduction campaign of the service.

Cons

There is not much to dislike. The interface is simple and easy to understand, the options menu structure has few - but important - things to configure. After that, it just runs and does its thing.
When getting it the first time, I was asked, what could be improved. I wanted for connecting to more cloud systems. The big five are ok, but I hoped, that pCloud being a European company would target big European providers, too. I miss especially T-Online, web.de and GMX and the access to their media centers. Maybe it is possible to participate in the development of a standardised interface to access various cloud systems. If this is not possible, I would request pCloud to have its service added to suppliers of cloud connecting software.
The German website show clearly, that it was translated from the English site with its share of expression and grammar mistakes. As pCloud is a swiss company, this is somewhat weird. But it is not unreadable or subject for misunderstandings of the service. You can't do anything wrong when following German instructions.
The pricing is ok, the free account quite generous and options to upgrade are quite tempting.

Response from pCloud

Hi Thomas,
Thank you a lot for your review.

As for the mobile providers, that's a perfect idea. We already work with some in other EU countries, maybe soon in Germany as well.

Crypto folder

Pros

pCloud worked for us. What's really cool is that they sell lifetime plans for a great price. If you don't need that you can use it for free though and even use your Facebook to open account. Every plan is cheaper than you'll find it anywhere else. pCloud shows your storage data in a chart so it's easy to keep up with how much space is used or free and what's in there. I like the amount of settings and how much control I have over everything. There's even a super secure option that nobody except the account holder can get to- the crypto folder.

Cons

When I touch the attatch file icon on email or text message there's no shortcut or preview of pcloud files like there is for all the others. It'd be cool if they fixed that and got features to the same level too.

pCloud - one cloud sollution that have something extra

1st rule of backup - to have a 3 copy on diferent medias and in different palces.
Until recent that wasn't a problem (DVD, USB sticks, portable HDs) but today we are bombarded with digital products, medias and contents.
For example, new AAA games have usually more than 20 Gb. Smartphone camera can shoot a photo of 2+ Mb or 1080p video without any problem, and next generations of smartphones push this boundaries more forward. Digital creators give freely most of their work and every year quantities/quality is also moving forward. Internet speed is also moving forward making more material downloadable and so on.
Question is: where You can make a backup of so much data? Cheap DVDs - too small but sometimes usefull, BlueRay Disc - slightly too expensive, USB - sometimes they stop working, portable HDs - perfect but expensive, have tendencies to multiply. Other problem is where to store them? People usually store them all in same drawer or closet. And that is also a problem.
So what backup mix can be used? I personaly prefer DVD - cloud - cloud.
Looking for some cloud with so needed space I arrived to pCloud.
There are different subsription plans:
- free with 20 Gb (that is nice start) but sometimes there are promotions so You can start with 50 Gb (nicer),
- premium with 500 Gb (we are geting serious)
- premium plus with 2 Tb (that is very serious).
I would sugest to take full year plan as it's ussually 20 % cheaper than monthly.

In business version there are some interesting features. Most interesting to me are:
- posibility to create diferent teams in same company but with different permisions so that data are not muliplies with several foldres for several users.
- multilayered date-related backup so it's possible to rool back a file version from some time ago that was overwriten or lost,
- activity log for all files,
- team instant messaging.

Work with pCloud, until now, was perfect, no flaws and I can suggest this cloud service to other possible users.

Pros

Simple to use, storage capacity, multilayered backup, team permisions...

Cons

As citizen of EU I would like that my data is stored outside US.
More customization would be nice.
Cloud encription is extra charged???For a server on US soil?

Response from pCloud

Hi Edo,
Thank you for your comments and the recommendations. We're happy that you would recommend us to others.

The cloud storage paradise I always dreamed of!

The security and privacy it provides are aspects that stand out in a special way. End-to-end encryption ensures that my data is always protected, giving me peace of mind and absolute confidence in the integrity of my business information.

Easy and Convenient Way to Back Up Your Files

Pros

My favourite feature of pCloud is the ability to sync and share files between devices. My team is very happy with Pcloud Business basically for file storage. You can access the service from anywhere, and there are plenty of features making it a direct competitor to Google drive, one drive and dropbox.

Cons

The pCloud interface isn't the prettiest. It's basically just a list of folders, and it doesn't seem to offer any sort of organizational tools.

The Best Cloud Storage Service

pCloud helps me to share files with my co-workers and clients easily. As a freelance video editor, I can easily create and share large video files easily with my clients.

Pros

pCloud is my primary cloud storage service I use to save images, files, and videos. pCloud is the only popular cloud storage service that offers a lifetime plan for users that comes with 500GB and 2TB space for the lifetime. Also, I like pCloud Virtual Hard drive that installs on my computer but doesn't take any space.

Cons

pCloud Android App is really bad and it always crashes. Always their customer support is really bad. Sometimes they take 3 days to reply.

pCloud, a balanced storage service.

Despite some mishaps, pCloud works correctly on most devices that I have installed and has been a powerful tool for out organization to have everything stored in the cloud, even when we share safely with our customers.

Pros

the desktop application works correctly , and it has an attractive design in the cloud, it is fast and it levels your bandwidth very well when it keeps synchronizing.

Cons

I did not like your support team, since I presented some problems with several users in the organization, we went to make a report but the response time was not pleasant and when it was obtained they did not meet the needs of the organization.

The worst shopping experience I've had on Appsumo

Pros

They have all kinds of integrations with lots of apps

Cons

The day they launched at $ 49 I asked a question that they never answered and when they did, I didn't even know why, the offer was no longer available. Finally, blackfriday came, and they came back with a price of almost triple the initial value. In their response they said that they offered 2TB more for $ 249 and when I visited their website they said it was € 349, about $ 394.

I convinced myself that it was an upgrade offer only for Appsumo buyers, so I was encouraged to buy, but to my surprise, they actually offered me to upgrade, but when I clicked it took me back to the € 349 offer.

I wrote an email 2 days ago to [email protected] and I still have not received a response, I tried the service, and although I do not need exceptional speed either, I wanted to buy it because of the number of integrations they have, but I already have Icedrive that I buy in Appsumo and that comparing speeds neither has anything to envy the other.

If this has been my experience to try to buy, I do not want to imagine the relationship that I could have with them in a lifetime agreement asking for some support, I do not recommend it.

Absolutely amazing

Simple and easy to use. Worth every penny. And always has discounts on.

Pros

It is easy to use since you install it and it is a virtual drive that syncs instantly to the cloud which I love.

Cons

Nothing apart from the fact I got signed out a few times but that isn't really an issue so it's still a 10/10 from me.

Nice, easy to use and fast cloud storage solution

easy and fast cloudstorage

Pros

online harddrive, so pcloud doesn't need to use storage space on your devices
streaming video and audio, don't need to download the complete file to start
rewind facility

Cons

servers are in the US. I would expect that for a Swiss based company, the data is stored in the EU
crypto functionailty is extra charged

Response from pCloud

Hi Michael. Thank you for your honest review. If you want, we can discuss whats bothering you in an email communication.
For the moment I can say that Crypto being charged extra is a business decision - we consider it a separate product which adds an extra layer of security to our already secured servers. Being the best encrypting solution on the market, it can be considered as an extra feature, same as the one which we are ready to launch - the extended file history, back to xxx-days in the past.

A better file sync/sharing alternative for creative folks

Pros

Love the media player that allows you to play your music and video files right from within the app. When you share files it lets the recipient play the files without downloading which is great for musicians.

Love that the app backs up your mobile devices media files too.

The price point is very fair for the amount of storage you get and they have a lifetime option as well.

Cons

I do wish the media player saved your spot when you close and open the file. It starts from the beginning whenever you close and reopen the file.

Pcloud is not a good alternative for DropBox

I haven't realized any. In fact the software itself is very aggrivating.

Pros

I bought Pcloud as a Dropbox alternative. It did install fine on each machine. That's about what I can say about it.

Cons

It didn't sync correctly, I couldn't get some of the other features to work and the company keeps bugging me over Facebook. Also support / sales is overseas so concerns don't get addressed anything close to immediately, you have to go to bed, wake up, and see you've been answered overnight.

Unlimited cloud storage

Pros

Unlike many top players, you get unlimited space. Sure most of us probably don't need more than 1TB, but when it comes to store photo and 4K video unlimited is what you need. You can also share files publicly, under the traffic limit of 10TB.

Cons

Sometimes the network might be a bit slow, and uploading large files can take time. The web app has some glitches and sometimes you need to reload the page. The PC app is much better so be sure to have it installed.
