On the event of new year mail.ru is offering 1TB could space free from 20 Dec 2013 to 20 Jan 2014. It is a suite that provides mail (the mailbox opens fast even on the Tor network), calendar and cloud storage services.
The website interface is primarily in Russian but shouldn’t be a problem if you are using Google Chrome. Either translate the full page or selectively translate any text content using the Right click ▸ Translate to English feature. Recently they have added a pop-up with option to change the language when you login to the mailbox.
Steps to claim your TB:
- Visit the registration page and create an account.
- Visit the promo page. Click on the big bordered black button at the bottom of the page.
- Download the desktop or mobile app of your choice, install and connect using the firstname.lastname@example.org login ID you have created in step 1.
- Alternative to step 2 & 3:
If still logged in, download the clients directly by visiting the cloud home page and selecting the client from the blue widget in the left.
Currently mail.ru has native clients for Linux, Windows, Mac, Android and iOS.
I wouldn’t recommend storing sensitive data in the cloud for security and privacy. And it’s safe to have at least a backup copy of the same data in another cloud service. You always have a better chance of data recovery.
