Get 2TB Free Cloud Storage Space on Baidu Yun Drive (Baidu Pan Web Disk)

»»»Get 2TB Free Cloud Storage Space on Baidu Yun Drive (Baidu Pan Web Disk)
Baidu, one of the leading web services company in China with the fame of Baidu web search that rivaled Google, is offering 2 TB (terabytes) of permanently free cloud storage space for life through its Baidu Yun or Baidu Cloud cloud storage service, with unlimited bandwidth for upload and download.

Surprise with the huge amount of online disk space on offer? That’s the result of ongoing China’s cloud storage ‘war’, which saw cloud storage service providers throw in up to 10 to 26 TB of free storage space as the bait to lock in the users to their ecosystem.

What’s the catch? Depending on who you want to believe, your files may be not private or secure after all. They may be subjected to eavesdropping or hacking, but don’t NSA do the same? In addition, as the servers are mostly in China, the transfer speed may be slower. And possible deal breaker, everything is in Chinese. But you can always use online translation service to perform translation on the fly.

Comparatively, Google Drive is charging $9.99 a month for 1TB of cloud storage space, and the same amount of disk space costs $6.99/month in Microsoft OneDrive / Office 365 and $9.99/month in Dropbox.

In addition, Baidu Cloud, or more specifically Baidu Pan or Baidu Web Disk or Baidu Drive (Baidu Cloud hosts a range of services) also allows many advanced features, such as offline downloading. Baidu Pan can download any files via BitTorrent, eD2K, HTTP, HTTPS and FTP automatically and directly to the Baidu Pan cloud storage, without the need of user staying online. And you can stream or play the media directly from the cloud.

    How in the hell do I use it? I’m having a nightmare just trying to upload one .pdf file and there is NO MANUAL in anywhere! Dropbox is ten times easier than this piece of…..

    • Titti Baselice

      “this piece of…..” give you 2 tb for free! Dropbox do that? I don’t think so. And how hard can be click on ” translate this page”?

      • Philip Harding

        Baidu giving me something for ‘free?’ Now that’s naive! A couple of months on, I’m still having problems with it. Went back to QQ. 我看懂中文!

        • Titti Baselice

          Well … it seems to work fine to me. The download was fast and easy thanks to the guide and the page is totally in Italian thanks to google. Yes, I did not have my 2tb, it gave me “only” 1tb but, vome on, it’s still enough!

  • Titti Baselice

    Thanks for the guide, it was very useful. I just do not understand why it gives me “only” 1031G instead of 2048. I’m not sure I can really complain about it XD they surelly are not few … but all 2048 would be even better XD
