I did try to search to see if anyone else had posted about it, but searching for "Copy" returned nearly every post ever made.

Thanks for the info!

There's only one thing that makes me nervous. From the TOS:

"Copy reserves the right to change the amount of free storage or terminate Free Accounts at any time."
"Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if a Free Account is inactive for a significant period of time, then Copy may delete any or all of Your Files."

I'm not sure if I want to put sensible data on a storage that might delete my files and cancel my account. Dropbox also keeps the right to terminate an account temporary or permanently in case of abuse, but never deletes any data. Instead you're informed how you may retrieve your files.

The way I use the cloud storage services the account vanishing shouldn't hurt, because it stores copies on each of my machines. I use in more like a synced folder, than cloud storage.
(other than when I'm at some other computer accessing the account online.)

Now if they would delete my files and it ordered the app to empty the local folders... yikes.

Inactivity isn't likely either, I turn on one of my machines that's been off for a day, and it has to sync 200 files.

What we need is Dropbox to get nervous, and up their space.

Cheers mate =]

@Paradox - That's fine, I kind of just put it at the bottom of my first big post and asked people to sign up as a thank you. I didn't really know where else to post about it directly and as this was moved I guess 'Construct2 General' wasn't the right place lol anyhow, it appears you have quite a nice amount of space now =] congrats :P
