Most of us accumulate hundreds of GB of storage either in the cloud or on our own phone. due to the large number of files that we generate almost daily. A type of file that usually takes up a lot of space is that of videos which, depending on the resolution at which we record them, will reduce our available space sooner than expected.
That is why we ourselves have been forced to look for an alternative to be able to save all the videos we record with our mobile and, after trying many cloud storage services, we have finally opted for TeraBox, an application with which we can enjoy up to 1 TB of free space but with some limitations that we tell you in detail in this post.
TeraBox, the best way to save your videos without having to pay for extra storage
To put ourselves in context, this platform belongs to a branch of Baidu that mainly It is available in a web version to be able to store all our files in the cloud with up to 1 TB totally freebut it also offers applications for other systems such as Android or iOS in order to facilitate the backup copies that we usually generate from our phones.
The best thing we found in this app (besides that TB of free storage) is that allows you to view our video files with HD resolutiona visualization that is also available for other files such as photos and documents without having to download them, a very clear advantage over its competition.
This is especially interesting for our Xiaomi phones since, directly from its application, We will be able to both make a backup of our videos and view them directly without having to download them. Of course, we must take into account that being a free service it has some limitations that we show you below:
Exists quite aggressive advertising in the mobile versionso we will have to pay an extra to be able to eliminate it.
maximum quality of video display in HD resolution (720p) (the paid version supports up to Full HD).
The recycle bin will only allow us recover files deleted within the last 10 days (the paid version supports recovering files from the last 30 days).
It has a limitation of upload up to 500 files of 4 GB each (the paid version allows us a maximum of 20 GB per file).
- We do not have automatic backup of videos and folders availableso we will have to do it ourselves manually.
We will not have at our disposal the familiar “safe” functionwhich allows us to encrypt part of the files that we have stored.
Of course, if you opt for the payment option you will be able to unlock all the features that we have just mentioned, in addition to have twice the space (2 TB) and a price that barely amounts to 3.99 euros per month. Even so, it seems to us that the most interesting thing is to take advantage of that free storage with our mobile and, in the event that we need more, choose to pay that monthly extra to have better features.
