Daspyknows, does Hightail do automatic backups or do you have to manually add new files? I went through their webpage and couldn't really find the answer to this.

I don't think it does automatic backups.  I don't use it that way.  It is more meant for cloud storage.

It can do automatic backups, but  .....

You have to sign on to another service for that software service.  I forget the name of the service they use, might be Carbonite, but tried to use it two years ago and it was terribly slow.  I called customer service, and it is simply not designed to back up large collections like I have, I'm at the 16tb range.  It would take six months to upload all of that with Hightail. 

Instead, I manually use Hightail for cloud storage, storing each show with a discrete zip file link, uploading that show, and I use my own written index, because Hightail's search function is unreliable.  Yes it is slow, but very easy to exchange shows (I just give you the permanent link).  Cost is about $15 a month.  So far I've done A-M since Pandemic.  I can do about 20 shows a day, easy. 

I think DaSpy and I use Hightail the same way.

How do you prevent someone you shared the link with from sharing with others? Can you add a download expiration date?

Yes you can add expiration dates.  I am not sure if you can set the number of downloads as it isn't something I need to do.  You can also password protect links.

Ok. Expiration dates are great. It would be very unpleasant to find links you shared with someone on guitars101 or other sharing sites. Some people just can't be trusted. Passwords can also be shared.

I'll definately have to check out Hightail. I actually started a free account a few minutes ago.

Two storage options.

SEND and SPACES

Sends have expiration dates, passwords, verifications

Spaces only have passwords. They do not expire.  But can be deleted.

I may be wrong, but that’s my understanding.

I cover most sharing with a 2TB Dropbox but I am looking for something that has similar features but much larger capacity. 

I am giving G Suite a try with the 14 day trial and will test the 1TB limit.  It says 1TB limit if you only use one user, but unlimited if you have 5+ users.  It is $12/month/user

Hightail is unlimited storage.

Isn't this ironic.  I cannot tell if they are listening to me, or listening to me.  Apparently they are testing some kind of feature that includes the ability to send files up to 100GB from their app.

Thanks. I am intrigued by the unlimited storage, but I like the automatic backups that I currently get. Each night, I backup my desktop, some specific folders on my NAS, and my laptop (if it is plugged in). As I am currently using less than 25% of my cloud storage allocation, I think I will just keep things as they are until I need more room. At that point, I will definitely take Hightail into consideration...

I have 19TBs backed up with BackBlaze.  It seems to be good for backups and storage, but not for sharing.  But my main goal was simply to have unlimited backups for a reasonable price (I'm paying $60/yr).

I thought they charged $0.005/GB/Month?  I have looked at B2 which would be over $200/month for me.  No thanks.  It's even more expensive to pull data back down.  They also do not allow mapped drives or NAS connections although I think FreeNAS (my OS) has a feature that defeats it.

Back on the G Suite track...

I uploaded a 600gb cassette archive project into a new Shared Drive and it shows 0% used.  I like that.  I'm uploading another 800gb project now to get me up and over the 1TB limit to see what happens.
