    Whilst Koofr might not (yet) be one of the biggest names in the cloud storage world, it is certainly one which brings with it a great deal of really useful cloud storage functionality and a very generous 10GB free account for all new users!

    Alongside the generous 10GB free plan, Koofr also features a good set of desktop and smartphone apps, secure file sharing and collaboration tools, tools for integrating with other cloud providers (including Dropbox and Google Drive) plus support for both WebDAV and Rclone access. Backing this great set of core features up is also the addition of the Koofr Vault, a highly secure area of the Koofr account which employs strong, zero-knowledge encryption to help provide some of the highest levels of data security and privacy whenever they might be required.

    I previously reviewed Koofr back in 2020 and was impressed by the great set of cloud features on offer. It is great to see that Koofr have since then boosted the free account offering up to 10GB in total and added a zero-knowledge encrypted vault, amongst other improvements, meaning this is a great time to check out the latest version as of 2023 – vamos!

    Koofr Usability

    In this section of my review, I will be making use of the Koofr cloud storage service for myself. This includes signing up for the initial 10GB free account, downloading and installing the desktop software and smartphone apps as well as checking out the Koofr web browser extensions as well.

    NB – Remember, if you would like to try Koofr out for yourself, they offer all new users to the service a generous 10GB free account with many useful features including secure file sharing and use of the apps and desktop software included!

    Signing up to Koofr

    Getting started with Koofr cloud storage begins via the official Koofr website where the 10GB free account is available for all new users to the service.

    koofr review - sign-up form

    When signing up via the new account signup form (see above), all that is required initially is a working email address in order to sign up for the full 10GB allocation of free storage. Alternatively, Koofr also support creating a new account via an existing Google account login which can be found a little further down on the signup page if this registration method is preferred.

    koofr review - email comfirmation page

    During this sign-up process a confirmation email will be sent to confirm the email address which has been supplied is active and working. Once this confirmation email is received, simply click on the link found within it and then enter a name and password to complete the sign-up process (we will then be automatically logged in to the new account).

    Overall, signing up to Koofr is a really quick and easy process overall! The need for minimal personal data during this process not only simplifies the work involved in creating a new account, but also helps to affirm Koofr’s commitment to protecting user’s privacy along the way.

    Installing the Koofr Windows Client

    Once a new Koofr account has been configured, one of the first things many will want to do is install the accompanying desktop software which is available for use on Windows, macOS and Linux devices. In my case I will be installing the windows version of the desktop software, a process which begins via the “Link this computer” link found on the main left side menu which will direct us to the official download page for the desktop software.

    koofr review - software download page

    With a download size of 97.7MB in my particular case, the Koofr desktop software for windows was a relatively quick and easy download and installation was a just a few clicks away thanks to the easy-to-use installer. Once installed, we simply need to login to the application using the Koofr account credentials created earlier on and the computer will then be automatically linked to the Koofr cloud service.

    koofr review - initial software homepage view

    As can be seen above, the initial desktop software homepage features a very simple, clean and easy to navigate design with the main components of the service (Koofr folder, Syncs, Local folders and Settings) all easily available via the left side menu and account info (including any free disk space available) also visible on the right side of the page.

    koofr review - software settings page

    Moving on to the desktop software settings page (I will look at the other features of this software later on) and we see the available configuration options for the app itself. Available options here include being able to turn on “sync icons” to indicate the synchronisation status of any folders within Windows, turning on or off of the automatic startup of the application when Windows boots plus the ability to map the Koofr cloud storage service as a virtual network drive within Windows (as opposed to a synchronised folder which is done automatically for us).

    And with this the installation and initial configuration of the Koofr desktop software is complete. I will look at some of its other functionality a little later on in this review, but overall, this is a very nicely designed piece of software which is virtually configuration free and gets working as you would expect straight away.

    Using the Koofr web interface

    With a Koofr account created and the Windows desktop software now installed, we can now begin looking at how the service can be used for some everyday cloud storage related tasks. This begins with a visit to the Koofr web interface from which the Koofr account itself can be both used and managed from within.

    koofr review - initial web interface view

    As can be seen above, upon logging into the Koofr web interface we have access not only to the cloud drive itself which sits prominently in the centre of the page, but also access to various other features and settings via the menus found at the top and on the left side of the page.

    NB – The contents of the default Koofr desktop synchronisation folder (which is configured automatically upon installation of the software) are contained within the “My desktop sync” folder as can be seen in the above image. It is possible to create a synchronisation folder which covers the root of the cloud storage folder (i.e., encompassing the entire Koofr cloud storage drive) and I will cover how this works in the next section.

    Starting off with the file management tool (found in the centre of the page) and it is here that we can browse any existing files already saved upon the drive. By including the use of both list and tile-based views for any visible files (which is switchable via the button on the toolbar just above) this tool becomes an ideal way of browsing and previewing any photos and other similar media files when applicable to do so.

    koofr review - web interface gallery view

    Adding new files and folders to the cloud storage is as simple as dragging and dropping said items over the web browser window with the correct folder visible in the Koofr web interface for uploading to begin. Alternatively, we can upload individual files and folders as well as creating new documents (e.g., Word and Excel documents) via the “Add” menu found towards to the top of the page.

    koofr review - web add button menu

    NB – Koofr has various integrations which make working with Microsoft Office documents easier and more convenient. This includes being able to create new office format files (including “.docx” and “.xlsx” formats) as well as edit and collaborate on said files thanks to these same integrations (which will be covered in more detail later on in this review).

    Downloading files from the web interface involves first selecting one or more items using the file manager tool before then either right clicking to reach the download button or making use of the download option which becomes visible just above when any files are selected.

    koofr review - web downloading multiple items

    NB – As can be seen above, when selecting one or more files by clicking on the “check” symbol which appears next to each item in the tile view or via the check boxes in the list view, we will also get to also see options appear for moving, copying or deleting said items as well!

    Another really useful file management feature found within the Koofr web interface, especially so for those with a lot of files and folders to manage, is the built-in bookmarking functionality.

    koofr review - web bookmarks in use

    As can be seen above, adding a new bookmark to any of the folders within the Koofr drive is as simple as clicking on the “Bookmark” button found on the top menu. Once added, any favourite folders will then be easily and quickly accessible form any folder within the drive via the “Bookmarks” menu entry found on the main left side menu.

    And with this, the bookmarking feature has been covered, as has this section of the review taking an initial look at the Koofr web interface. I will, however, be using this web interface some more throughout the remainder of this review as we look further into the sharing and synchronisation features available as well as taking a look at some of the built-in security features of the service as well.

    Sharing and synchronisation within Koofr

    Good file sharing and folder synchronisation functionality are key to any modern cloud storage service and, thankfully, two areas in which the Koofr service performs very well.

    Starting off (again) in the Koofr Windows desktop software and it is under the “Koofr folder” tab (found on the left side of the application window) where we can add new items to our cloud storage by simply dragging and dropping them over the app to automatically start the synchronisation process.

    koofr review - koofr synchronisation folder in-use

    When adding new files to the cloud via either the desktop software or the special Koofr folder (which is found within Windows Explorer after installation of the software is complete), the desktop software will then automatically start the synchronisation process thus keeping any locally stored files in synchronisation with those in the cloud and vice versa. The synchronisation process itself happens automatically and in real time and, as a result, this becomes a synchronisation solution which “just works” as expected (albeit one without any advanced setup options for those who might require a more customised configuration).

    NB – Whilst we do not have much control over the Koofr synchronisation settings, thy are, at least, all set to work automatically and in real time (which I would suspect are the ideal settings for many to begin with anyway).

    Whilst, so far, we have seen some of the capabilities of the Koofr synchronisation service in action, it is also really useful to see that we have the option to create multiple additional synchronisation folders as and when these might be required.

    koofr review - new synchronisation folder - local folder

    As can be seen above, we can create as many synchronisation folders as we require using the Koofr desktop software and this includes turning virtually any existing folder on our device into a Koofr synchronised folder by simply selecting it on the sync setup page which can be seen above. With the source folder on the device selected, we must then select an existing folder on the Koofr cloud drive in which to keep it synchronised with (or simply create a new folder) before continuing with the setup.

    koofr review - new synchronisation folder - cloud drive folder

    Finally, with both the source and destination synchronisation folders specified, the new synchronisation job will automatically begin. We can see and monitor the status of all currently configured synchronisation jobs on the “Syncs” page which is found within the desktop software.

    koofr review - synchronisation jobs overview page

    Moving on past the folder synchronisation capabilities of Koofr and we see that the secure sharing of files and folders via the Koofr cloud is also another key aspect of the service. This begins via the web-based interface and the selecting of individual files or folders before starting the sharing process off via use of the “Share” button (found to the right of said files) or via the “Share” button found on the top menu.

    koofr review - selecting files on web interface for sharing

    NB – In the sharing menu above, notice that we have the option to either “Add people” or “Send link” available. Sharing in Koofr comes in two forms, these being with other Koofr account holders or, using the “Send link” option, via the use of a publicly accessible sharing link.

    Once in the sharing configuration box we can set various options for our new link before copying the special URL which can then be shared with others. Configuration options include being able to set password protection for the link (using a 6-digit PIN code set by Koofr themselves), the setting of automatic expiry dates, the adding of personalised notes (on premium accounts only) plus buttons for sharing links directly via social media found towards the bottom of the box.

    koofr review - file sharing configuration box

    It is great to see that Koofr has made available the automatic link expiry options for all account holders (including those on free accounts) however, this same configuration box can also be used to remove / disable the sharing link as and when required at a later stage. Moving on and the option for sharing with other people can be used to share files directly with other Koofr account holders or, alternatively, share items with other non Koofr members using an active email address (with the emailed user then invited to sign-up for Koofr before being able to view the shared files).

    koofr review - sharing with other koofr users

    Finally, one other really useful aspect of Koofr’s file sharing services is the ability to also provide upload folders for public (non Koofr) users to upload files directly into a Koofr folder. This is especially useful for those wanting to receive files form a 3rd party who might not have a Koofr cloud storage account and also remains secure thanks to the ability to still apply password protection and automatic expiry as was the case with the other sharing links.

    koofr review - sharing upload page

    As can be seen above, the public upload sharing page simply allows other, non-Koofr users to follow a special link and upload items which will then appear in the Koofr cloud storage. As with the other sharing links seen so far, this upload link can be both password protected and set to automatically expire to help make use of such a service as secure as is possible.

    NB – Unfortunately, as of time of writing this review, Koofr does not provide any sharing options directly via the Windows desktop software. This means that the web interface is essential for making use of the Koofr sharing service at present!

    One final aspect of the Koofr file sharing service to be aware of is that sharing quotas are in operation limiting the overall use of the service. These public sharing quotas range from a 50GB daily limit on the free account and range up to a maximum of 4TB of sharing per day on some of the higher end premium plans.

    NB – Remember, Koofr offer all new users a 10GB free account should you want to try some of the many features on offer here for yourself!

    Integrations within Koofr

    One of the other very notable features of Koofr is the ability to integrate the service with various other cloud storage accounts (as well as Facebook) in order to move files and media between the different services and the Koofr cloud drive. As of time of writing the supported services which integrate within Koofr include Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox and Facebook.

    koofr review - integrate dropbox box

    As can be seen above, connecting another cloud service (in this example, Dropbox) starts by selecting said service under the “Connect” section of the main left side menu and then following the instructions which are then shown. In my example I am connecting my Dropbox account to Koofr, a process which, after clicking on “Connect Dropbox”, takes me to a Dropbox login page for authorising the connection via my usual Dropbox login.

    koofr review - dropbox integration authorisation page

    With the authentication process complete, the Dropbox files will become available from within the Koofr web-interface (but not the desktop software) under the same “Connect” menu as was originally used to establish the connection (as can be seen below).

    koofr review - dropbox integration complete

    NB – It is important to note that Koofr doesn’t automatically copy across any files from other connected services to the Koofr cloud account! This connection process simply makes available the files from another cloud service, files which can then be copied across to the Koofr cloud drive and as when required after this point.

    Koofr offer a similar experience to the above when integrating other cloud services including OneDrive and Google Drive. The Facebook integration which is also available, however, focuses more on transferring media form the social network across to the Koofr cloud storage.

    koofr review - microsoft office integration - document open

    Finally, one other notable integration found within Koofr is with Microsoft Office, a service which (on premium Koofr accounts) allows for Office documents to be opened directly from within the Koofr web interface and edited. This support for Microsoft Office files also extends to being able to both create new Office format documents within the Koofr interface (on all accounts) as well as support for working on said documents collaboratively as well.

    Browser Extensions & Smartphone Apps

    In addition to the desktop software and web-based interface, Koofr also make available smartphone apps for both iOS and Android-based devices alongside browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, EDGE and Brave. I will first be taking a look at the Android offering which can, of course, be downloaded from the official Google Play store.

    koofr app in google app store

    Once the app is installed, we can log in using the Koofr account created earlier on and begin using the service as expected. As we sign in for the first time, Koofr will prompt all app users to automatically upload any newly discovered media files and folders on the device (including any photos and videos taken) in addition to any existing media already on the device.

    koofr review - smartphone app backup prompt

    NB – As can be seen above, we can also specify that the app only uploads this media over Wi-Fi using the “only upload over Wi-Fi” switch (when applicable to do so) which is also conveniently included on this screen.

    Once this initial media setup screen has been closed, we can start making use of the wider app itself. As would be expected, many of the Koofr cloud related features are also included here as are the third-party integrations including Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox as were seen working within the service earlier on in this review.

    koofr review - android app view

    Moving on past the smartphone apps and we also see Koofr extending use of their service via a range of browser extensions which are available for all major web browsers (including Firefox, EDGE and Chrome). In this case, when making use of the Firefox extension, installation is as simple as visiting the Koofr page in the extensions store and downloading the (free to use) Koofr extension.

    koofr review - firefox browser extension in-use

    As can be seen above, once installed and activated, the Koofr browser extension is available via the right-click context menu and allows both saving of various elements found upon a webpage (e.g., photographs) as well as the ability to take a screenshot of the entire webpage which is in view and save this to the drive as well.

    koofr review - firefox browser extension screenshot view

    As can be seen above, any items saved to the drive using the browser extension are initially saved to the “Save to Koofr” folder (found at the root of the drive) and can be easily previewed after saving them to the drive, an excellent addition to the service overall.

    Koofr Security

    Koofr is a service which clearly pays attention to keeping their user’s data both private and secure. This is seen through several security related features being implemented within the service including the following:

    • Zero-knowledge encryption (via the Koofr Vault)
    • Always-on TLS/SSL data transfers
    • Multifactor authentication (2FA)
    • 30-days deleted items retention plus latest 5 versions of all files kept
    • Automatically expiring and password protected sharing links

    In addition to these above security related points, it is also good to see Koofr practise good privacy policies themselves and includes asking only for minimal user details when singing up for the 10GB free account (only a name, password and working email address are required to create an account). Furthermore, by offering multifactor authentication and secure sharing features (including password protected sharing links) across both free and premium accounts, this is another good sign and shows Koofr are committed to providing good account security services overall.

    In the case of deleting or modifying files within the cloud drive, it is also very useful to see Koofr offering automatic historic file versioning which is turned on for the service by default. Any files which are modified will automatically have up to 5 previous versions kept and easily recoverable in addition to any deleted files being automatically kept in the recycle bin for up to 30-days in total.

    NB – The use of historic file versioning, as is the case here within Koofr, is one of the easiest and most efficient methods for dealing with many cyber security issues including the negative affects of malware and ransomware (which might see files encrypted and destroyed as a result of such issues). Having available multiple historic versions of any such files is one of the easiest ways of recovering any potentially lost data after such an incident has occurred!

    Using the Koofr Vault

    Whilst some security features are fast becoming standard in many cloud storage services (e.g., multifactor authentication), the inclusion of the Koofr Vault service is particularly interesting as it brings Koofr into a much smaller set of cloud storage providers offering full zero-knowledge use of their services (and providing enhanced privacy and data security in the process).

    koofr review - koofr vault authentication page

    One of the first things to notice when making use of the Koofr Vault for the first time (which is accessed via the main left side menu in the web interface) is that it appears to be treated like a separate application and requires authentication to the Koofr cloud via the above page. Once this authentication step is complete, the Koofr vault interface will become visible.

    koofr review - create new koofr vault

    As can be seen above, one of the first tasks to do in the Koofr Vault is to create a new “Safe Box”, this is an encrypted container (folder) which will be used to hold all of our encrypted data within whilst stored upon the cloud. This process involves entering a name for the safe box and, crucially, an encryption key (password) which is separate from our main Koofr account login.

    NB – There is no way to recover any files stored within the safe box should this password be forgotten and Koofr themselves will have no access to the files nor any ability to assist in the process. For this reason, it is VERY IMPROTANT that this password is kept safely and not forgotten!

    With the encryption key set, the Koofr safe box will be ready to use. This service is initially usable via the same style of web interface as the regular Koofr service (albeit still separated from the regular cloud storage) as well as being accessible from Rclone software for anyone seeking such access.

    NB – Interestingly, as of time of writing, the Koofr Vault service doesn’t appear to be accessible via the desktop software!

    Some other important points to note about the Koofr Vault service include the code being open-source (which, in-turn helps to provide additional scrutiny and security for the service) as well as the service encrypting both file contents and filenames for additional data privacy and protection versus only encrypting file contents as is sometime the case with other encryption services.

    Koofr Support

    Koofr have a useful help and support portal featuring a detailed knowledge base with guides on using the service plus the ability to contact the support team via an online ticketing system if required. All-in-all a very clear, easy to use and well laid out support system!

    Koofr Pricing

    Koofr offer multiple different premium pricing plans for their cloud storage service, these start at 10GB and raise all the way up to a total of 20TB with a free to use 10GB account also available to all new users of the service.

    NB – Koofr add the 10GB of storage provided in the free account to all premium accounts (meaning all premium plans effectively provide +10GB more storage than is advertised)

    The full range of Koofr pricing plans as of time of writing are:

    • 10GB – Free!
    • 10GB (20GB total) – €0.50 per month
    • 25GB (+10GB) – €1 per month
    • 100GB (+10GB) – €2 per month
    • 250GB (+10GB) – €4 per month
    • 1TB (+10GB) – €10 per month
    • 5TB (+10GB) – €20 per month
    • 5TB (+10GB) – €35 per month
    • 10TB (+10GB) – €60 per month
    • 20TB (+10GB) – €120 per month

    NB – All Koofr plans are currently only available via pre-paid yearly subscriptions!

    Koofr FAQs

    Yes, with a great set of file synchronisation and sharing services backed up by some very useful desktop software and apps, Koofr really does stand out as a great cloud storage service (and is definitely one to try thanks to its generous 10GB free account).

    Yes, whilst Koofr cloud storage isn’t encrypted by default, they do offer their encrypted Vault service to all users (including those in the 10GB free account). The Koofr Vault is a separate area of the cloud storage account which applies strong zero-knowledge encryption to all data on the client’s device, before uploading, thus ensuring all data remains secure and private through its entire time being stored upon the cloud.

    Yes, Koofr has a great file sharing service which supports sharing files both publicly via a sharing link as well as with other registered Koofr users directly. Sharing links can optionally be protected via the use of a 6-digit password which is generated by Koofr themselves when creating the link as well as by automatically expiring links (both of which are available on both free and premium accounts).

    Yes, Koofr have available useful smartphone apps for both iOS and android devices.

    Yes, when making use of the Koofr sharing links there are some bandwidth limits to take into account. Public sharing download limits are capped at 50GB per day on the Koofr free plan with varying caps, up to 4TB in total, also applying to the premium accounts (more information on exact amounts can be found via the official Koofr pricing page).

    Yes, Koofr offer a very useful and highly functional free account to all new users of the service featuring 10GB of free cloud storage. Other premium plans ranging up to a total of 20TB are also available.

    The “Local Folders” tool (available for an additional subscription of €4.92 / year) essentially allows Koofr users to securely access any files and folders stored upon a client computer via the internet without first transferring said files to the cloud storage drive first. This is essentially a direct connection to the PC for the accessing of files and does (of course) require the PC to be turned on to make use of this feature.

    Koofr Alternatives

    In this section I will be looking at some good alternatives to the Koofr cloud storage service. This includes cloud storage services with many of the same key features of Koofr including strong secure file sharing support, great desktop software and folder synchronisation plus a generous free account storage allocation amongst other features.

    Remember, any ratings and opinions given below reflect my own personal views and should be treated only as a guide! When purchasing any form of cloud storage, always be sure to carefully check out the details of the offering for yourself first and try and to make use of any free trials or free accounts, whenever possible, to help ensure the solution is right before committing to a purchase.

    1) pCloud

    pCloud is one of the leading cloud storage services available as of today, a service which combines a great set of cloud storage features alongside some great value storage plans up to and including provisions for lifetime deals and business accounts featuring unlimited cloud storage.

    koofr review - pcloud alternative

    pCloud is a cloud storage service with many great features available, these include secure file sharing and receiving of files, device folder synchronisation, useful desktop software and apps, media streaming support plus, just like Koofr, a generous 10GB free account for all new users to the service.

    Additional services on offer include (again, like Koofr) the ability to integrate with other cloud storage providers (including Dropbox, Google Drive and Facebook), provision for up to 30 days of historic file versioning, multifactor authentication (2FA) plus use of the pCloud backup software (which is integrated into the desktop software) amongst many other useful features.

    pCloud also provide secure, zero-knowledge encryption of files via a separate secured area of the cloud drive referred to as the pCloud Vault. This is done in much the same way as the Koofr Vault service (seen earlier on) does and also provides a similar level of client-side encryption and data security via use of a separated area of the main cloud drive.

    pCloud is priced from just $49.99 / year for the 500GB account with a 2TB option for just $99.99 / year amongst other options. Also available from pCloud are team and business orientated plans, lifetime pricing options on selected plans plus a very generous 10GB free account – more information on all of which is available via the official pCloud website.

    2) MEGA (MEGA.IO)

    MEGA is a popular cloud storage choice thanks to its provisioning of a great set of cloud storage features, a secure by default design plus the offering of some great value premium accounts with up to a massive 16TB of cloud storage available.

    koofr review - mega alternative

    MEGA is a well know cloud service and one offering many great features including built-in device backup and folder synchronisation, secure public link sharing, up to 365-days of historic file versioning plus use of secure web and video chat services which are also built directly into the MEGA service itself.

    MEGA also features great software support with desktop software available for Windows, macOS and Linux devices alongside the use of web browser extensions for many popular browsers, smartphone apps for iOS and Android (with auto photo uploads) plus command line tools and specialist tools for developers as well.

    Security wise and it is also great to see that the entire MEGA service makes use of secure, zero-knowledge encryption for all data sent to and from the service by default (a slightly different approach to Koofr which makes use of a separate secured vault area for applying such security). Other security features found within MEGA include support for multifactor authentication (2FA), password protected file sharing plus up to 365-days of historic file versioning to provide additional data and malware protection amongst various other security features.

    MEGA is priced form just €49.99 per year for the 400GB premium plan, €99.9 per year for the 2TB plan with other accounts featuring up to 16TB of cloud storage also available. MEGA also offer business and team orientated plans as well as a very generous 20GB free account for all new users to the service – more information on all plans can be found via the official MEGA website.

    3) Internxt

    Internxt is a highly secure cloud storage service which, amongst many other useful cloud related features, offers secure, zero-knowledge encryption of all data sent to and stored upon the service by default.

    koofr review - internxt alternative

    As a cloud storage service, Internxt offers many great features including useful desktop software and smartphone apps for enhanced access to the service, automatic folder synchronisation and device backup services, secure file sharing plus, like Koofr, a generous 10GB free to use account for all new users to the service.

    Security wise and Internxt offers secure zero-knowledge encryption across their entire cloud storage service by default, this ensures all data is encrypted on the client’s device and remains encrypted throughout its entire time being stored upon the Internxt cloud. Whilst Koofr also offers zero-knowledge encryption via their Vault service, Internxt takes this security a step further by applying always on encryption across the entire service by default.

    Internxt is priced form just $0.89 per month for 20GB with other plans including a 2TB plan also available for just $8.99 / month. Also available from Internxt are business orientated plans alongside a 10GB free account which is available to all new users of the service, more information on all plans is available via the official Internxt website.

    Koofr Review Summary

    Having re-evaluated the service again in 2023, it is clear that Koofr remains a solid cloud storage offering and one which has continued to evolve and add some great new features (plus even more free storage) along the way.

    Not only has the Koofr free account been boosted up to a very generous 10GB since I last reviewed this service in 2020, but the addition of new features including the Koofr Vault helps take this already privacy focused cloud offering into one now featuring even higher levels of data security and data privacy than before. Other features including the secure file sharing and easy to configure desktop software remain in place as do the useful browser extensions and smartphone apps to make this a very featureful cloud storage choice overall.

    Overall, a solid cloud storage service with some great desktop software, a useful zero-knowledge encrypted vault service for enhanced data protection plus some very reasonable pricing for premium pans to boot – great work Koofr!
