Will the bonus storage expire?

asked this on July 30, 2013 03:52 PM

Will the bonus storage expires? I've experienced a few cloud storage services, where the bonus storage from refferals expires after a certain time e.g. after 1 year. So will we be able to keep the bonus storage here forever?

I think, this question needs to be answered clearly.

I agree with the above posters. Copy need to say one way or another what their future policy will be on free accounts and whether they plan to charge for them and if so, when and how much? Whilst the free space seems very generous, it doesn't, seem to be a business model that is all that sustainable. The fear is that Copy will eventually have to make a charge for those using some of the free space that it is giving away at the moment. If this is the intent and Copy refuse to say then it could be seen as rather underhand and sharp practice as users pile in and become committed to the service believing it to be free only to find that they are having to pay for it later. If this question remains unanswered then the doubt will remain.

This question should be clearly answered. I don't want to spend a lot of time inviting people to, then just find that I only have limited time for the extra space

Storage gained through our referral program is yours for the lifetime of your account. We will not be revoking any of the bonuses unless a user breaks the terms of our referral program.

Also in the TOS it says:

Free Accounts

Copy reserves the right to change the amount of free storage or terminate Free Accounts at any time.


if a Free Account is inactive for a significant period of time, then Copy may delete any or all of Your Files. At least 30 days notice will be provided (..) for any reason other than (..) deletion of data due to inactivity.


So don't go on holiday for too long. Your files might get deleted without notice.
