El mes pasado os avisábamos de un servicio de almacenamiento en la nube llamado Backify que nos ofrecía nada más y nada menos que 512GB totalmente gratuitos. Pero lamentablemente hoy tenemos que decir que el servicio gratuito toca a su fin. Desde la pasada madrugada, los usuarios están recibiendo un correo electrónico que les informa de que el servicio gratuito dejará de estar disponible.

Parece ser que no es un simple cambio de política, sino que hay algo más de fondo. Backify es revendedor de los servicios de Livedrive, empresa que está avisando a los usuarios de Backify para advertirles de que ya no ofrece dichos servicios y que los usuarios que usen su software para acceder a su espacio verán como éste ya no les permite conectarse.

Por otro lado Livedrive avisa de que han recibido multitud de quejas referentes a Backify y advierten de que podrían hacer un uso fraudulento de los datos bancarios de los clientes que contraten servicios con ellos. Además, informan de que no disponen de los datos bancarios de ningún usuario, todos están en poder del revendedor, por lo que de producirse algún tipo de error o fraude, ellos no son responsables.

Aquí os mostramos el correo electrónico que Livedrive está enviado a los usuarios de Backify:

Dear XXXXXXXXX

We are writing to you regarding BACKIFY.COM who you recently created an online backup account with.

BACKIFY.COM was a reseller of Livedrive (http://www.livedrive.com). Livedrive provided the technology and service behind the product offered to you by BACKIFY.COM.

We are writing to inform you that BACKIFY.COM is no longer a Livedrive reseller and the services that they purchased from our company on your behalf have been terminated. If you are using a service provided by BACKIFY.COM and powered by Livedrive then this service will now have stopped working.

We would also like to advise you that we have received a number of complaints about BACKIFY.COM from their customers and from industry organizations. We would like to advise you not to provide any credit card information to BACKIFY.COM. If you have provided credit card information to BACKIFY.COM then we would suggest contacting your card provider and informing them that your card may be used fraudulently. If BACKIFY.COM have charged your card for services not provided you should contact your card provider and ask them to initiate a chargeback procedure.

Please note that this advisory is being sent to you in good faith because we feel you should be informed that BACKIFY.COM is no longer a Livedrive reseller and of the complaints we have become aware of. No contract exists between yourself and Livedrive and we are not able to assist further in any dispute you may have with BACKIFY.COM.

If you have installed the online backup software provided by BACKIFY.COM we highly recommend you uninstall it from your computer by following the steps below:

On Windows:
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel and select Add/Remove Programs (or ‘Programs and settings’), select Livedrive and select uninstall.

On Mac:
Go to Finder > Applications and delete the Livedrive application.

Please note that any data you backed up using BACKIFY.COM cannot be retrieved and we recommend you establish an alternative backup service immediately.

Livedrive does provide a very similar online backup service to the one provided by BACKIFY.COM and you can read more details and, if you wish, signup for a trial on our website at http://www.livedrive.com. Please note however that we do not provide a free service as BACKIFY.COM did.

Other online backup vendors you may wish to consider include:
Carbonite.com
iDrive.com
Mozy.com

We are sorry for the inconvenience this situation may have caused you.

Kind Regards

Livedrive Limited

El cierre definitivo del servicio gratuito será el próximo martes día 22 de Noviembre, por lo que si no han descargado su información, deberían hacerlo lo antes posible ya que después será imposible recuperarlos.
