25GB Cloud Storage

I got 25GB cloud storage from PCCW.  It is a free service. Once connected, there will be a u drive with the name uhub.  Just like plugging in a USB flash drive.

Doesn't sound much increase in storage capacity if one is using desktop or notebook.  However, the cloud storage is accessible by iPhone and Android and this feature is very significant since smartphones do not come with hard drive.

The speed of access is a bit slow which can not be compared to accessing a local hard drive. The transfer of files is not aided by encryption. If this option is available, it makes access even slower. However, the experience of commercial paid cloud storage should be much better and encryption is a MUST.
