    Doubt that it has chunked uploads or a different API

    The API is really good, there are indeed chunked uploads but the size can not be changed. I was using a plugin called "Minebackup", and I was able to add support for Copy.com.

    The reason why I needed chunk uploads was just to be safe. I have 10-30 GB world zips and I wouldn't want any lagg or slow upload. If I remember the default chunk size is 128 MB (can't be changed) but thats good for me. The API also allows 'breaks' between chunks. So you can upload the first 128MB and the other 128MB 12 hours later (It seems like the chunk is dropped after 12 hours, a new chunk for that file will extend this)

    1) Upload chunk
    2) Is there TPS lagg, or package loss on the server?
    3) Upload next chunk

    Maximvdw Dropbox allows different sized chunks, as long as you keep track of it.
    24 hours time limit.
    1) upload first chunk, get ID back
    2) upload next chunk
    3) keep repeating step 2 till done
