ubuntuone out of businessIf you were an Ubuntu One user probably you have received a mail like this one:

“This is the FINAL reminder to make sure you have retrieved all your data from Ubuntu One filesync, as we will be deleting all the content permanently on 31st July 2014. After that date, we will no longer be able to retrieve any of your files.

In order to make it easy for you to retrieve all of your content, we have released a new feature that lets you download all your content at once. Our website (https://one.ubuntu.com/) has been updated with instructions on how to conveniently download all your files.

In addition, you still can use Mover.io’s offer to transfer your data to another cloud provider for free. The Ubuntu One web interface is available for you to download individual files as well.

All of us in the Ubuntu One team would like to thank you for your support over the years.

The Ubuntu One team”

Luckily there are a lot of options of “cloud storage” for Linux users, at the moment I’d suggest copy.com, that should be one of the provider that offer more free space, they offer 15 GB for free + 5GB for every referral that sign in with your code, or + 5Gb if you sign in using a referral code (please be aware that in the link there is my referral code).

Or I’d go with Google drive, there are a lot of interesting options for Linux Desktops and also for Android Smartphones.

As last choice the old, but always good, dropbox that offers a smaller space, but has great features on their clients, both on the web than on multiple platforms.

So in short, don’t forget to save your data, and goodbye Ubuntu One, i loved the old Tomboy integration to keep notes synced among multiple computers…
