    Even better, I got that too. As I signed up I used a 3. party way, not directly and the infos were a bit different (maybe old?!)!

    Didn't you know what a Cloud Storage is all about? As long as you didn't upload files, your usage will be 0MB!

    The limits for Storage are:
    • 100GB content (Files, Photos, Video, Music short: Computer Data etc.)
    • max size of a single file: 2GB (2000MB), if bigger you have to split
    • No limits in number of files

    I can't get IE to upload. Google Chrome and Firefox work fine.

    pisthal - Thanks for this great find. By the way, do you (or anyone else) know how long files remain with the free account? The reason I ask is because one of the features of getting a Pro (paid) account is "Forever Storage". The obvious implication is that you don't get "Forever Storage" with a free account. There are others asking this same question in the Shared.com community. So far there is no official response from anyone at Shared.com. (in any event, the responsible thing would be for them to email you before deleting any files. Again, with no official response, one can only guess).

    Generally there is a length of time that they specify for how long it has been since a file was accessed / downloaded, if it has not been touched for X number of weeks / months, it will be removed

    Check their T&Cs, it might be in the small print

    From Shared.com Terms and Conditions:

    "Termination of Services

    You agree that shared.com, has the right to delete or suspend your account, block your IP address, or otherwise terminate your access to or use of the Service (or any part thereof), immediately and without notice, and remove and discard any "Content" within the Service, for any reason, without limitation. In addition, you agree that shared.com Hosting Service shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any early termination of your access to the Service.
    Files uploaded to free accounts may be removed if the account is inactive for 90 consecutive days."

    Got my free 100GB account and everything works fine.

    My advice is that if your going to store anything on it that will get you terminated is to encrypt it.

    Thank you. I'll try to remember reading the "Terms and Conditions" first.

    It's up and running well!

    Just open once before reaching 90 days of not using and you're fine with the free account.

    Also as reminder to everyone and not for free Apps/Services etc. only, just for everything which has an digital License, is software or so, READ THE TERMS AN CONDITIONS! The so called "Fine Print" may saves you time, effort, trouble and money!:D
