Recycle your old laptop: Set up your private storage with Oxygen under 3 minutes
Do you have an old laptop lying around? Perhaps even your old desktop from a few years ago that you left in the garage? Instead of throwing it away, giving it to your younger cousin who makes fun of how outdated that computer is, or trying to sell it for $180 on craigslist – you can actually configure it into your own private storage cloud with Oxygen in less than 3 minutes!
It is really, really easy. And I’ll show you how I did it in about 2 and a half minute by myself at home the other night.
My set up:
- Signed up for a free Oxygen Cloud account on www.oxygencloud.com
- Installed Oxygen clients on my Macbook and my iPad
- Downloaded Oxygen’s Storage Connector for Windows onto my old Lenovo laptop that has 500GB of storage
In the video, you can see how I transformed my old laptop into my private storage. It started working immediately so I can sync and access files on my iPad in less than 3 minutes!
Oxygen’s Storage Connector for Windows is available for free. Yes – that means all your old Windows computers can be turned into your own private storage. Store, sync and share files with Oxygen for free using your own storage! Why pay $20 a month just to get 100GB when you can recycle your old laptop and get much more than that at no cost?
So what are you waiting for? Try it yourself today!
And if you also liked the cool “I Cloud Files” tshirt I was wearing in the video -now you can get one too! Just post a video or write up about how you built your Oxygen private storage cloud and share your story with us here. We’ll send you the free tshirt and some other cool Oxygen swag right away!
