Nextbit Robin cloud storage service to end on March 1

Prasad, 10 January 2018

Nextbit, now Razer, has announced that the Nextbit Robin Smart Storage feature will go offline on March 1, 2018. The company is requesting its users to download all their data by visiting the website before it gets deleted on March 1.

The Nextbit Smart Storage service was the pièce de résistance of the Robin when it launched. It had an automatic backup feature with 100GB of storage that backed up things like unused apps and photos to the cloud service so as to not take up space locally. The cloud icon with the lights you see in the image above showed how much of the cloud storage was in use.

Of course, it's likely there aren't many users of the service left now, seeing as how they never really sold many units in the first place, which eventually lead to Razer acquiring it in 2017.

That is why you make multiple backups of everything, be they cloud based or not. Samsung just killed knox service and while it is not a storage one, goes to show even big companies are prone to cutting their services.
