A frequently used service Amazon will soon be a thing of the past. Customers must act now.
Amazon kicks popular service – THAT will soon be gone
Your data is at stake! By the end of the year, the group wants to discontinue the Amazon Drive cloud storage facility. This applies to both the free and the paid version. From January 31, 2023, you will no longer be able to upload data to the cloud. However, your data stored there can still be accessed until December 31, 2023.
Therefore, customers should better back up their data early before they face a rude awakening later. App users in particular must expect restrictions before the end of this year. Because from October 31st they will no longer be able to access the service.
Amazon Drive is being retired – find your data here instead
“We’re taking this opportunity to focus our efforts more on Amazon Photos to offer customers a dedicated photo and video storage solution,” the company said.
Conversely, this means that you do not have to do without all your data. Photos and videos that you still have saved in your Amazon Drive account are then automatically stored under Amazon Photos. However, all other files will be deleted. However, the free version only offers you five gigabytes of storage space.
Depending on the performance, the paid versions are quite challenging. From EUR 19.99 per year you can save unlimited photos, even without a Prime membership. However, only five gigabytes are provided for videos. The largest package offers the most storage space with 30 terabytes for photos and 4,200 hours of video memory (in 1,080 pixel HD), but it also costs almost 3,000 euros a year.
Alternatives to Amazon Drive – various offers
Alternatively, customers can also switch to cloud storage from Apple, Microsoft, Google or Dropbox. The free versions offer different storage capacities: Apple and Microsoft give you five gigabytes of free storage space, Google Drive even fifteen and Dropbox only two gigabytes. The paid subscriptions allow you to upload more files accordingly.
