As far as remote file storage goes, iCloud is pretty great. It connects seamlessly to your Apple devices, is reliable and reasonably cheap. But it’s not perfect. For example, if you’re a college student or learning a new skill, you might need more storage space to house all your project files.

For situations like that, Prism Drive makes for an excellent and inexpensive Plan B. And right now, lifetime subscriptions are on sale during our Back to Education event.

Save, secure and share your files on the cloud

Prism Drive provides subscribers with ample secure space to store their documents, photos, videos and other assorted files. It works with just about every file type in existence, allows you to access your uploads from any device, and you can even generate shareable links. Plus, everything you upload is encrypted, so you don’t have to worry about private information falling into the wrong hands.

So, why use Prism Drive if you already use iCloud? You might recall that earlier this year, many of Apple’s services suffered an unexpected shutdown — including iCloud — that left users in the dark for a couple of hours. iCloud also sometimes experiences syncing problems. And it maxes out at 2TB.

So, while we agree iCloud’s good, it’s not perfect. It’s smart to have a backup just in case.

There’s also a cost concern. iCloud is relatively inexpensive in the short term. But to keep using it, you must continually renew your subscription. Over the years, your iCloud account could cost a lot.

Alternatively, with Prism Drive you pay just one small fee, and that’s it. So if you plan on using cloud-based storage year after year, Prism will be a far more affordable option.

Save on a lifetime Prism Drive Secure Cloud Storage subscription

If you’re interested in supplementing iCloud, consider Prism Drive. During our Back to Education event, you can purchase a 2TB lifetime Prism Drive subscription for $49 (regularly $790), a 5TB plan for $69 (regularly $1,490) or a 10TB plan for $89 (regularly $2,490).

Plus, donate to charity at the same time

When you buy a Prism Drive plan during this event, 50 cents of your purchase will be donated to a school or charity in need.

After you purchase, you’ll receive an email where you can vote on organizations addressing critical issues such as food insecurity and under-funded schools. We’ll announce the organization that earned your contribution after the event concludes on August 24, 2022, so stay tuned!
