Why do I need Picsium?
There are many reasons to consider Picsium personal storage. If you wish to OWN your data, then you definitely need Picsium. The data you store on it is yours and yours alone. We're not storing it on our servers and, by design, we're not even able to see it. During transfers, your data is encrypted on one end and decrypted on the other. Even if it passes through our servers we still cannot see it as only you have the encryption key.
How do I install and configure Picsium?
Even the term "configure" is complicated. We know that and we made Picsium so you don't have to configure anything. Just download Picsium and install it in two clicks. Login and you're ready to go. Isn't that easy?
Or just follow the steps of the installation guide.
How do I unninstall Picsium?
So you really don't like it?! Picsium is easy to unninstall as well, just like any other cloud service on your computer. From the Start menu, select Control Panel. Choose Programs » Under Programs and Features, click 'Uninstall a program'. Select the program you want to remove, and click Uninstall. Alternatively, right-click the program and select Uninstall.
Yes! Really! Unlike the wide variety of competitors out there, you don't need to upload your files to a cloud server in order for them to sync and be available from your other devices. You get to keep all your data on your own PC, no third party storage, no privacy issues, no leaks. And being your storage, it is virtually unlimited or better said as large as you wish!
How many TB does unlimited means?
OK. Listen. You install Picsium on your computer. From this moment, the free space you have on your computer can become cloud space. The more free space you have, the better. If you don't have enough, well, you have the liberty to get a bigger one or have the storage on USB drive or external hdd. For example, right now I have a 4TB hdd with about 2TB free. My cloud account is 2TB.
Can I store my public cloud folders (ex. dropbox, google drive, one drive, box.net) on Picsium?
Yes, you can. You do not even need any special tool. You can simply use a PC to sync your cloud folder into Keupy folder. Basically you just copy your entire cloud folder into Keupy folder on your PC. That's all.
How it Works
What it does
Picsium allows you to share files from your computer with your smartphones, tablets.
Once you install the Picsium app you can read documents or view photo from your home computer. By default any new photo or video on your mobile device will be automatically uploaded to your computer. Is like having a cloud storage box, but one that stores everything on your computer.
You can upload or download as many files as you wish. The only limit is the size of your computer hard-drives.
You can also access your files from any internet browser only by singing into your account on picsium.com.
So, how does it work?
First get on sing-up for your Picsium account. After that you are prompter to download and install the storage app on your computer. From this moment on this is your Picsium storage. Everything that is in there is accessible to you via mobile app or internet browser. Don't worry, if you wish to change it you can easily do it from Settings.
So, at this moment all you have to do is to install the app on your smartphones or tablets or whatever runs Android or iOS(if your dishwasher, from time to time, saves some photos feel free to install the app on it). You just have to sign-in and you're all set.
What about Availability?
Picsium is a service that is always up. But the files are on your computer. So, as long as your computer is up you can access your files from your other devices. If your computer is closed than you'll be prompted with the "Storage is offline!" message.
Privacy and Security?
We built Picsium exactly because of all the privacy issues nowadays. Your files are stored on your computer not on our servers. Our servers just forward bulk data from your storage to your devices and back.
At all times all communication is secured using SSL secured connections.
