Another cloud storage service to close

LogMeIn's Cubby is the latest cloud storage service to shut down. Users of its free plan have until 16 November, while paying customers have more time.

LaCie closed its Wuala online storage service in November 2015, and that was followed by Barracuda's closure of Copy and CudaDrive in May this year.

Now LogMeIn has announced that Cubby will shut down on 16 November, so you only have a few weeks to decide what to do with your files. One of the clever features of Cubby was that it allowed you to designate any folder on your device as a 'cubby' for syncing files with other devices and for sharing with other people.

If you're a LogMeIn Pro subscriber, you now get 1TB of online storage as part of the deal and the company will migrate your Cubby files for you on request (a one-click process).

Otherwise, you'll probably want to move them to another service such as Box, Dropbox (but bear in mind that Dropbox's free tier is being limited to two computers plus your mobile devices) or OneDrive.

This video from LogMeIn shows how that's done:

More information for Cubby Basic (free) is available from the Cubby website.

Paying Cubby Pro and Cubby Enterprise users will have full access to their cubbies for 30 days after their accounts' renewal dates, and then read-only access until 16 November 2017.
