Recently I had reviewed a free online storage service called ADrive that gives you free 50GB of online storage. I was quite excited with that, as 50GB is a big deal. It did lack a few bells and whistles, but 50GB free online space was a no brainer.

Today, I found an even better service called GoAruna. GoAruna has upped the stakes in the online sharing even further by providing unlimited free online storage space! Yea, you read that right – it is completely unlimited, and 100% free. Some people have mentioned that there is a limit on filesize to around 100MB (size of each individual file), but that should not be a problem if you just want to store your photos, documents, or even music.

Till now I had come across 2 services that provided really large online space – Microsoft SkyDrive and ADrive. Both of them have a downside that they do not come with an integrated desktop client that can easily upload the files. To upload a file, you have to use the web interface. GoAruna has addressed that problem as well. GoAruna comes with a nice desktop client. This will make the uploading files very easier. One of the great features of this desktop client is that it can resume uploads from you, if the upload process gets stopped in between. This ensures that you do not have to start the upload process all over again.

GoAruna Desktop Application
The desktop client is very innovatively designed. It shows a split view of your machine’s file browser, and the files in your GoAruna account. To upload a file to your GoAruna online storage, just drag and drop the file in the GoAruna pane, and GoAruna desktop client will take care of the rest.

To download a file, you do not need GoAruna client. You can just access your GoAruna account from any browser, and directly download any file. This is another good feature that I like about GoAruna.

If you want to backup your files online, and are looking for unlimited free online space, GoAruna is the solution. This is the only service that I have seen that provides unlimited free online storage space. Love it!

If you do not need lot of storage space, but instead want to keep your files automatically backed up, you can use Dropbox or Mozy. Here is a comparison between Mozy and Dropbox.

    Very nice find…Checking this out right now!
    Thanks!

    -One other thing you could do if you did want to upload a file that is larger then 100mb is use one of the many freeware programs to split your file into smaller chunks. Here is a nice little program http://www.gdgsoft.com/gsplit/

      @Kody: That’s indeed a great idea. Thanks for the tip :)

    For those of you looking to upload files from 100 – 200 mb, separately can use MediaFire.

    I proceeded to the GoAruna website, which states that the free account has only 2Gb storage?

      Yeah the same happened to me. I'm guessing that when this article was posted it was free for unlimited space, but I guess they had to go with the flow of all the others sad really. What I don't understand is if they did have unlimited space for free a while ago, why now do paid users only get 50gb? I mean that's $10 a month. Create two windows live accounts and get the amount of space in Skydrives for free.

        ouch.. this was one of my favorite free data storage website. Too bad that the free account is limited to just 2GB now.

    Hmmm… I checked it out but it says that to get the GoAruna unlimited space, you have to pay a monthly fee. Or you can get 2gb free… which looks pretty much the same as dropbox.

    Unless I’m looking at completely the wrong place…

      @stardreamer: You are correct – this service has become paid for unlimited space, and only 2GB of space is free now. Do check out Wuala for more free space.
