What exactly is bandwith? I think it has something to do with upload speed, but not sure. If I got a plan with SS, then I could figure out what is the best.

I started out with the 19.99 a month plan that allowed me unlimited bandwidth and unlimited storage. I now have the 8.99 a month plan and it allows me to have a bandwidth of 300 something a month and unlimited storage.

In the pro plan it says unlimited, I have 1.4 T in mine at this point. That will only be increasing. They also have a link about a drop box too, but I don’t know anything about that. I don’t think it’s anything like the dropbox the group folder is in.

Here's a question. If I bought a plan with SS, how much space
would I get?

I looked into DB back before I ever purchased a subscription
for SS, but it seemed like they were more focused on the big
players such as corporations. There prices when I looked were
outrageous. I may have been looking in the wrong area or they
may have introduced new price plans I do not know, but when I
did decide to purchase a plan I went with SS because of the
wizard and because I had heard many positive things about it.
I did not give much consideration to DB because of the thought
that I still had to keep a file on the computer and that the
price was too high for what I needed. If I ever grow unhappy
with SS then I may reconsider, but for now ss is doing the job
that I need it to and I do not want to transfer all the files
that I currently have up there somewhere else at this point in

Also with Mac you can choose to save to dropbox,Sort of like
in the windows context menu where it says send to dropbox. So
I don’t think you have to retain the file on your machine
itself anymore. Of course if you throw a file in the trash
that you see in DB it is deleting that file. So in that way
it now works like SS. I did a test document and just saved it
directly to DB, so therefore it didn’t keep a copy on the
computer because I did direct save. So if I want a copy it
would be like an outside file of having to copy and paste then.

So that is a game changer as far as I’m concerned, because
when DB is uploading by itself it’s a lot faster than
Sendspace. It also crosses all platforms, Mac Windows and
Linux where it’s quite accessible once found and installed,
whereas Sendspace wizard is useless in Linux, they don’t
update it, and if you even do get it compiled right, it’s not
accessible with Orca.

So now part of my little brain is thinking of exploring DB as
a viable storage option verses SS. Just as SS really becomes
accessible with it’s wizard, but still, I am considering it
seriously. Will have to explore their terms with a paid DB
account, I don’t think it’s much different financially.

I’m not sure you have to retain the copy on your computer
anymore Josh, I haven’t tested the theory, but I think it
may actually retain on their servers now. Thats why when
a larger file goes into DB it will show almost instantly,
but in the menu extras on the mac it will show an upload
progress for DB. So I will test the theory, but I think
it actually is stuff on there servers like SS does now.

I guess what I like about SS is I do not have to keep
a copy of the document on my computer. I use Drop Box,
but usually just to get documents from the iPhone to
the computer and vice versa with relative ease. I
purchased a tablet a while back to get use to the
Android platform and when I purchased it I got 50GB of
free space on Dropbox so that was nice.

I prefer dropbox myself. It's fast, it's easy, and I
use the NVDA add-on with it too so it makes it a lot
easier. Speaking of dropbox, I'm listening to the
zomby game. Pretty cool. I have some games I could
demo too sometime. And other software also.

just stay up there for 30 days if no downloading

It’s been a pretty good back up storage place for
me especially back when we were still using the
old Mac because it only had 40 gigs storage on the
hard drive. Well it still has that, we just don’t
use that machine much.

I have not gotten a chance to listen to the
letter, but speaking of SS I deactivated my
account for a short period of time. If you
ever decide to do that make sure you can move
your stuff within 30 days because lifetime
storage is only a benefit if you are paying
them. That makes sense, but their website was
not real clear. I reactivated and just went
ahead and paid for 6 months so I do not have
to worry about it for a while.

On SS.

Okay here’s Stacey’s latest letter on SS in
the archive.


I also have a letter already in the group box
in DB, but am waiting for it to go up to SS
yet. SS decided it wants to upload a
different folder first, and won’t let me pause
it to start the letter. So that will probably
be a little later today because I don’t plan
to stay up all night while it loads this one
folder. So SS users will have to wait a
little bit. Once i have a link you all will
have it too.
