Click the headline.

 

 Copy.com is very much like Dropbox.

 

It works the same way but gives you a ton more free storage. Copy.com is giving 15GB of free storage compared to the 2GB which Dropbox gives until you have to upgrade to one of its plans.


If you download Copy using this link, you’ll be given 15GB + 5GB of free extra storage. Pretty cool.


According to their website, Copy is giving away the free storage for a limited time to celebrate the launch and to create some buzz.

 

You could do a lot with 20GB of free storage:


Store all your important files and documents
Backup your videos
Backup your music
Backup those important photos

Share files both secure or by a public link - It just have it all.

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD

How to Recover Lost Data From SSD | Culture and Fun - Second Life - Apps & Utilities | Scoop.it

A lot of people are looking for methods for SSD data recovery, but most of them failed finding one. Now, we’ll work this out. 


SSD is the acronym of Solid State Disk, also known as Solid State Drive. Despite that the first solid state disk drive was developed by Storage Tek in 1970, it was not until the year of 1989 that we finally witness the birth of the first solid state disk in the world. 


 After about 20 years of development, the manufacturing technology has become gradually mature and the SSD has been applied to all walks of life. Though SSD has a high cost, it is gradually spread to the DIY market. More and more computer users choose to replace their old hard drive, which is relatively small in capacity, with a new SSD, whose capacity is relatively large.


SSD (Solid State Drive) is a kind of hard drive which is made by solid state electronic memory chip array. And it consists of control unit and storage unit (FLASH chip and DRAM chip). SSD is exactly the same with common hard drive in the specification and definition of interface, function, usage and product shape and size. The most obvious difference between SSD and the old fashioned hard drive lies in hard drive technology.

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been asked by Yuzuru Jewell to evaluate some of his software tools – a task I’m always delighted to perform as time allows, although in truth, I’ve fallen a little behind of late. This being the case, when Yuzuru first notified me that he was working on a new version of Idobata, his a text-to-speech conversion tool, I made a point to be ready to clear time to look at it when he was ready to allow me access.
