speed too in some cases, but more likely to effect whoever is downloading from
you.  It’s an allowance of so much data going up or down, after that point they
slow things down.  As a free user you already have to deal with bandwidth
restrictions because of the limits they put on free users, well ones who sign
into their accounts and then download that is *lol*.

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.

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 time.   From:

Subject: [audio-pals] Re: Stacey's Latest Letter On SS. 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.  .

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.

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.   From: audio-pals-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Subject: [audio-pals] Re: Stacey's Latest Letter On SS. 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.On

Thats why I just have them charge a monthly payment, just put it in the budget.
 It’s cheaper than a car payment *lol*.  But yes your stuff will just stay up
there for 30 days if no downloading activity is happening.    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.

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.  From: audio-pals-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Subject: [audio-pals] Stacey's Latest Letter On SS. Okay here’s Stacey’s latest
letter on SS in the archive.   https://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/sn3wkr 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.
