Stacksocial, eh? No thanks.

Whose lifetime? Mine or the company's?

ZERO reviews for this likely fly-by-night operation.

I just had a CHAT session with Thunderdrive. There is no way to get a free account for testing purposes, and even the cheaper of the two plans on their site is $5/month, BUT you can't sign up for a month to test it...you have to pay $60 for a year. CHAT said you can cancel w/i 30 days, but I don't trust them for a refund. She said they had been in business since 2007, but I can't find a single review except for TrustPilot and they are brand new and not very good (too slow):

Guess I will pass on this offer unless anyone here knows anything about this company or this cloud storage/sharing service?

If it's on Stacksocial, there's a 99% chance it's crap or a scam or both.

Well, yours of course.

I wasn't going to, but out of curiosity, I bought a lifetime subscription and so far think it is a good deal.

The interface is similar to Google Drive.

When sharing a link there is a calendar that you can click on so that the link expires on the date that you set.

If you have a Thunderdrive account and someone shares a Thunderdrive link with you, you can click IMPORT rather than DOWNLOAD, and the file will appear instantly in your SHARED WITH ME folder.

Upload/download speeds are as expected, dependent on the plan I have with Suddenlink.

Downsides (noted so far), which I hope they are working on...

It allows you to upload the same file more that once instead of alerting you that it is a duplicate.

When a file upload fails, it just stops uploading rather than moving on to the next file in the upload queue.

Overall, it is a bargain at the current price of $44.25 for 2TB. I don't know how long the offer or the discount will last.

And when I was setting up the account, Thunderdrive offered an additional 2TB for $39.

Regarding LIFETIME...any company can go out of business at any time. Who knew such huge, well-known companies as Enron and Arthur Anderson Accounting would fold!!!

Like everything else in life, 'You pays your money and you takes your chances'.

Not sure who they were before, but they don't disclose any other company names in their terms or privacy policies.

Based on the WHOIS record, thunderdrive.io has only existed 3 months... Hard pass here
