This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Firedrive. All opinions are 100% mine.
There is nothing quite like getting to work, class, or a friend’s house in a flurry of hard work and last minute perspiration, only to realize that the infinitely important term paper, presentation, or movie download is, in fact, stored on a different computer or device than the one you chose to bring with you. What to do? Sure, you could wear that super stylish flash drive around your neck for the smaller files, but wouldn’t it be nice to have everything you’ve ever needed to save synced on all of your devices? Yeah, I thought it would be. Luckily for you, me, and the rest of the living world, the folks over at Firedrive have gone above and beyond to provide a service that allows you to access your files anywhere, and much, much more!
Save Your Stuff…And Take It Anywhere
Firedrive is, essentially, a free and secure cloud storage solution that allows its users to do just about whatever they want with the files they have stored. When we say this service is packed with tons of useful features, we really aren’t kidding! Let’s take a closer look at what Firedrive has to offer:
Unlike some cloud storage services, with Firedrive, users do not have to pay to get started. Firedrive offers it’s patrons a 50GB chunk of space, absolutely free of charge. This way, you can give Firedrive a risk free test run and find out exactly why you shouldn’t be living without it.
Access From Any Device
Wanna take notes on your iPad during that important meeting and review them later from the comfort of your laptop? Not a problem. Your files that have been saved to Firedrive are available on all of your devices, anytime and anywhere!
Completely Private Unless You Choose Otherwise
Worry not! You can save whatever you like to Firedrive in complete and total privacy, unless you choose otherwise. Which leads us to our next amazing feature…
Sharing Like There’s No Tomorrow
Everything you save to Firedrive is automatically set as private, but that doesn’t mean you can’t share! Select which photos, songs, documents, and more to make available to the public, or put them in a password protected folder to share only with those who know the magic word.
Groups With Control
Working on a project for school or work with a group? Share necessary files privately between selected group members! Users can even chat and collaborate together on a given project, all while you control who does what!
Create A File Drop
File drops are seriously the wave of the future. Forget annoying email attachments that you ultimately download and then lose somewhere in cyberspace. Set up a file drop that allows coworkers or colleagues to drop files directly into your Firedrive account. Don’t worry though, everything is still completely private within your Firedrive account. You can eve create log in credentials to control who uploads files for you.
Be A File Sharing Celebrity
Okay, maybe not a celebrity, but with Firedrive you can publish your files directly to the public. Other users can follow you and keep up with your file activity. I mean, that’s pretty much like being a celebrity, right?
Simple, Intuitive Control Panel
File storage can be a hassle, but not with Firedrive. They have created a beautiful, user friendly interface that allows you to manage, drag, drop, and organize all of your files with a click of your mouse. Three cheers for simple and easy!
The Bottom Line
As you can see, Firedrive is much more than just your regular, run-of-the-mill cloud storage. It is secure and private, yet social in nature, so users can control and decide exactly what to do with their files. In the workplace, nothing is more valuable than a service that is not only organized to the hilt, but able to actively collaborate a large group of people. Imagine the productivity! Whether you are using Firedrive to orchestrate the next big idea at work, or simply storing photos of your kids with pureed carrots on their face, you’ll find Firedrive infinitely useful and ridiculously easy to use. What more could you want in a cloud storage service?
