ZumoDrive


DESCRIPTION

ZumoDrive was a cloud-based file synchronization and storage service operated by Zecter, Inc. On December 22, 2010, Zecter announced its acquisition by Motorola Mobility. The service enabled users to store and sync files online, and also between computers using their HybridCloud storage solution, the latter functionality stopped working in approximately September 2011, while the former is undergoing formal takedown on May 1, 2012. ZumoDrive had a cross-platform client that enabled users to copy any file or folder into the ZumoDrive virtual disk that is then synced to the web and the users' other computers and handheld devices. Files in the ZumoDrive virtual disk may then be shared with other ZumoDrive users or accessed from the web. Users may also upload files manually through a web browser interface. A free ZumoDrive account offers 2 GB of storage, and users may upgrade to paid plans ranging from 10 GB to 500 GB for a monthly subscription fee. The ZumoDrive service is also integrated into Yahoo! Mail allowing users to send or receive any file on their ZumoDrive (the integration with Yahoo! Mail has been stopped as of June 1, 2012), and powers HP's recent CloudDrive technology, bundled on all new HP Mini netbooks.
