Not to pry, but do you actually find having many different services useful, or are you just trying them out to see which one is best? I would be interested to know what you think of these different services if you actually use them all. I only use dropbox and, other than measely storage, I haven't had an urge to look for something different yet. If another service is better though, I would probably try it.

I do use both dropbox and sugarsync
Dropbox for daily backup/sync - the one I use most
Sugarsync for sharing folders where I don't want other to be able to change or delete them. Do also use their achive for a lot of magazines and podcasts (5 GB) I have on an external drive and don't want to have on all computers but want to be able to reach
Have just started to test spideroak to see if I want to replace any of the other or if I find it useful for something else - Will be back when I know

And you should have 1 Gb more now since I've subscribed today with your refferal link. Let me know if it has worked. On my side I have only 2 Gb

I'm signing up to give it a try. There is a comparison (spideroak vs. dropbox) here. I sure love Dropbox though. The Dropbox iPhone app should be available soon. Spideroak needs to sync my files and make me coffee at the same time - if you know what I mean. smile

edit: Whoa. Now that it's installed, it looks very versatile. I just need to get home and install it on my Mac too.

Nice, I installed it using your link.

Anyway, after macwitty has another referral for a total of 3, please use mine at [EDIT: I got all my free space - use someone else's link so they can get some too!] - I'm looking to get those extra gigabytes...

A friend of mine was less patient and send an email to Spideroak when she didn't get the extra 1 GB. They answered within 10 minutes (not bad!)

"Thank you for the inquiry, and sorry for the confusion.  When you use the link to signup, we will run a server side update to the accounts with the new storage amounts.  This is run on a regular period a couple of times a day.  If you do not see the new storage in the next 24 hours please let us know."

So let's see if it's there tomorrow

Agree with jfm429 use his/her instead as I have got what I can get for free accounts

Thanks jfm429, I was using your link to sign up.

If you've reached your three additional GBs it would be nice if people could use my referral link to sign up:

[s]https://spideroak.com/download/referral … 92a7e49b36[/s]

(Edit: canceled my account, please don't use that link anymore)

Thanks smile

Looks nice so far, a bit like Mozy actually. Unfortunately the icon in the menu bar is full colored and looks really odd next to all the black icons, but I suppose they'll add an option to change that soon. I'm going to suggest that to the devs.

Hope the one who used my link also got their space
If not do send Spideroak a message as they wrote in their answer, see #7

Please, when you got your space do go back and edit/take away the link in your previous post - I think that will help people who want to sign up - not by mistake use a "full" link

LaurentR as you used mine link: Have you still not got it? Have you emailed them? If so do send your email address to me by PM at once (I'm off to Namibia Friday morning)and I'll send them an email. I got my 5 GB and I just checked with my friend and she has 3GB

If anyone dare to try it seems as the first who hasn't got 2 ref is
Jo123 in #10
then Zora in # 11
and JAcl V # 16

Until now I did not get any referral bonus. I sent them an Email, they asked me for my and the person(s) who used the link usernames. I sent them my username and Stan2.0’s referral link. I hoped they could verify. I got no answer until now.

Wait, that’s not true. I got an Email yesterday afternoon with an offer of  30% discount on all monthly and yearly storage plans. A good deal, if I had the opportunity to try the service backing up one of my really large DevonThink databases. I need more than 2 GB for this. I wanted to have a closer look at this offer next morning, but it had been valid for 12 hours only, evening and nighttime here in Europe and it’s gone now.

I read in their forums and blog they encountered some problems with their services. So I wanted to be quiet and wait until they resolved their troubles.

Overall I liked the rather clean interface and the different possibilities with backup and sync and sharing.

Stan2.0 I will write you a PM asking for your SpiderOak username.

If you are not too disappointed, I would like some more backup space for trying out the service. Feel free to use this link:

Link deleted, I got my free space, thank you!

I've sent you my username Zora (along with some spelling mistakes, I should really proofread _before_ hitting "submit" wink )

I already canceled my account with them, since it's less useful to me than I originally thought. And the software is just terrible (IMHO).

I agree, their software is awful.  Having it in your dock to keep it running?  Seriously.  And that's just the beginning.  I was honestly hoping it would work well, but Dropbox is a lot nicer for me.

Thank you, KristenM, for using my link.  This time I got  the free space immediately.

I nearly forgot SpiderOak during the last weeks, will give them another try. 

At the moment it uses 55 to 65% of my CPU, is this normal behaviour?

I really dislike this yellow icon in my menubar. I prefer to have the app in my dock. If it disturbs me there,  I may hide it.

CPU seems a little bit better now, only around 50% when scanning the HD...

Yellow icon? Is the icons on files and folders? Then you can take them away at the general tab in Preference

Otherwise I dislike to have the icon both in the menu and the doc Would like it to go away from my doc! smile

@macwitty: Are we speaking about the same application / service?

In SpiderOak's Preferences I can't find any possibility to choose where I would like to see  the app's icon. The version I used until today showed it in both, dock and Menu Bar. Now they followed your wish and it sits in the Menu Bar smile. Yellow between elegant black and grey...

I'm not sure if and how this worked, saw the referral code in the link but that lead me to a download and I registered from inside the app and there was no indication that the referral was accounted for... well, maybe it works via IP or whatever... we'll see, hope it works.

If somebody wants to use my link to register, I'd appreciate:
