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 security features at a much lower cost.

Set Up

Sign up, connect our app to your My Cloud Home device, and your data will be automatically backed up.


Encrypt & Fragment

Your data is intelligently encrypted on your My Cloud Home 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.


Encrypted Long-Term Storage

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