Demise of Ubuntu One   Leave a comment


I’ve been using Ubuntu One for cloud storage since sometime in 2012. I received an e-mail on Sunday the 13th of April 2014 informing me that service was closing so I had to find an alternative.

The service provided direct links to picture files which could be inserted in to posts on this blog and is a feature that must be available. Finding an online service that provided direct links was easier said than done. Most online storage supplier’s web sites state that links to files can created and “shared”, I thought I had found a replacement service and after the effort of transferring all the file from Ubuntu One to the new service (15GB of free storage instead of 5GB) I found that the links it generated to files didn’t work with my blog i.e. the pictures did not appear, direct links were only available with paid accounts. Hunting for an online service was a very frustrating experience, I had to sign up to numerous services to check whether direct links to picture files could be created and by the end of Monday I was seriously considering paying for storage in order to get access to direct links.

Fortunately I finally found a supplier that did provide direct links at no cost and that is Copy which provides 15GB and an extra 5GB if a referral URL is used.

Now I have to go through all the links to files on Ubuntu One both here and on Fractal Forums and replace them with links to Copy which is going to take a while as there are hundreds of them.

Note: the referral URLs to Copy in this post are “time limited” according to Copy but when the referral bonus offer expires I do not know.
