hubiC has most of the features similar to Dropbox, which arguably is one of the most popular online file backup service. In order to beat that, it starts you with 25GB free account and does not puts any limit on file size. And of course, it maintains good features of Dropbox, like automatic file sync and cross platform compatibility.
How to backup and share files online with hubiC:
Well the first thing that you need to do is register an account, obviously. Once that you have an account, you can start uploading files directly from inside the web browser.
File upload can be seen on the image above. Alternatively, you can upload and sync data between devices using the client applications, which are free.
Client can only be accessed from the system tray icon. From there you can only access and manage the file syncing using the right click context menu, see image above. When you do a double left click you’re gonna see the hubiC sync folder.
hubiC offers a lot of free space and it’s a great way how you can sync file between various different devices that you might be using. 25GB is a lot more than what you get with Dropbox and a lot of other online file backup services, and if that’s not enough, very cheap upgrades are available.
