Their price of 3TB lifetime cloud storage has gone to 98% sale. I am wondering if they are going bankrupt; or what?

The 2TB lifetime subscription has also gone from 1200 to 60$.

it doesn’t look healthy.

what do you guys think?

They took a half-million US in venture capital 12 months ago. It appera to me they perhaps couldn’t get a repeat of that and are looking to meet cashflow needs. No serious reviews despite years in existence, either. Want to trust your backups to them? Have fun! I’d take that $60 and just pay for a year of Backblaze, myself.

Thanks for the heads up on Backblaze; we’ve been using Livedrive but Backblaze looks serious and very competitive.

Re lifetime licenses via sites such as Appsumo and the like, my understanding is that they are a way for startups to quickly get (a) cash and (b) a broad user base. As they develop further, the cost for sustaining these early adopters should be quite marginal—see Rifkin’s Zero Marginal Cost Society.

I’ve got some really good deals this way, such as bargain lifetime subscription to Brain.fm, which I find really useful. Sure, I understand that “lifetime” refers to the product/company, not to the user, as the former is more likely to perish first. But the risk is there even for mature products backed by real money, sometimes even more so; see my relevant rant here http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/5164/0/the-cloud-shooting-itself-on-the-foot-dispatchiocc-and-docom
