    Deepfreeze.io, a cloud-storage service that puts your files into ‘deep freeze’ has announced a name change, additional investment and a new free (for one year) 5TB per user limit for new and existing users.

    In essence, the service allows you to free up other cloud storage services (like Drive or OneDrive etc.) by keeping your infrequently accessed files in a cheaper (but slower to retrieve) service like BigStash.

    To put that 5TB offer in perspective, that amount of storage with the service would normally cost $500 per year. The lowest tier of 100GB would cost $15 per year. If you do plan on using up all your free space, it’s worth keeping this in mind for when the free year is up.

    Alongside the name change and new introductory offer, BigStash also announced it had secured an additional €300,000 in seed funding.
