Storage space question

Post by myforum on September 16th 2012, 11:15 pm

Is storage space purchase a monthly charge?

Example if I buy 200mb and and make it full in few days.
come the next month do I need to pay again just to keep that 200mb (if not it dissapears?)?
Or do you pay only to get more (and that 200mb is yours) and you lose only the space you didn't use when the month time is up?


I would really appreciate if someone can clear that up for me.
thanks

Well understand if you use (upload) all of the space that you paid for and the space expires you will not lose the content (images) you uploaded they will still be there, but you won't have the extra space available anymore to upload more images should you decide to delete some of the images or content until you renew.

Okay so if you used 400mb and then didn't pay again those images will stay.
But lets say you deleted 50mb of images and using 350mb you wont be able to add anything back to 400mb until you buy new space and use that up within 1 month period.

Am I understanding it right?

Yes, correct, not until you pay for 400mb again.

Okay thank you.

last questions so I know I really understand before I present an idea on my forum.

So if you have the 400mb and you are using it in full.
when you pay again to have lets say another 400mb you will pay only for 400mb more (and your total would be 800mb at that point if used in full) but you are only paying for 400mn more?

And is there expiration on the time the images will stay on the site? if you don't pay again. ? like they wont disappear after 12 months all of a sudden etc?

I seriously don't know for sure. My understanding is it doesn't add up. If you have 400mb paid for and you're using it with uploaded images, you can't by 400 more to bring it up to 800, you have to pay for 800 to be able to have access to 800. Now if you paid for 400mb and you are only using 300mb and it expires, you lose the 100mb. You would have to pay for 400 mb to bring it up to 400 again so you would have another 100 to use again. You pay for how big your storage is, and it doesn't add up. If you don't use it you lose it.

That's my understanding. But I know you want a definitive answer and I don't want to mislead you by accident, so lets see what others who posted in this topic can find out.

You will have to pay for the space you are using plus pay for more space if you want more storage.

But only when you are buying more space?

So if you bought 400mb and used 400mb you will have that space as yours for months until you need more?
then you will need to pay for the 400mb and the more space you want? and so on?
Hence it's not a monthly commitment? but an upgrade history drag?
