Hack the cloud: Get 12GB+ free space without losing your mind

Update: (February 10, 2014) The service – CloudMagic Search referred to in this post is now shut down. We’ve shifted our focus on building CloudMagic Mail.

 Keep 12GB of your files synced at any device with a single point of access (for FREE)

I realized today that one can upload more than 12 GB of data to various file sharing services and access them from a single interface across multiple devices for FREE. I thought it’s pretty creative and definitely worth sharing.

So here’s how it works. You can get free storage from various cloud service providers like Dropbox, Google Drive, Box etc. Their free plans get you a total of 12GB, here’s how, you just need to sign up to them:

Google Drive                        5 GB
Dropbox                                2 GB
Box                                         5 GB

Fairly simple so far, but now that you’ve signed up to multiple file storage services, you have a problem – when you try to locate a file, you don’t remember the service you had uploaded it to. How I solved that problem? Surely I used CloudMagic to locate any file within seconds. Upload anywhere you want and then forget about it. When you want the file, just type in few characters in CloudMagic, and it’s right there.

Up next – 29GB FREE and still use CloudMagic to manage them all!
CloudMagic search is coming soon for the following services, and then you can have more than 29 GB of free storage with a single point of access:.

SkyDrive                                7 GB
SugarSync                            5 GB
Amazon Cloud Drive         5 GB

Update: Now with the addition of SkyDrive in CloudMagic you get 19GB+ of cloud storage with a single point of access.
