How CrowdStorage Works

Our community of users share unused space on their storage devices to build a distributed storage network—transfer, store, and back up your files with more safety, security, and at a much lower cost.

Set Up.

Sign up, connect our app to your storage device, and your data will be automatically backed up daily.

Encrypt & Fragment.

Your data is intelligently encrypted on your storage device and sliced into tiny pieces that only you can put back together.

Community Distribution.

The encrypted data pieces are scattered across our community of users, using small portions of our member’s unused hard drive space.

Secure Long-Term Storage.

Multiple copies of these fragmented pieces are stored in redundancy across the network, ensuring your data is always available.
