Yahoo’s recently announced that Briefcase – its online storage service, which was available online for almost 10 years with capacity of 30MB, is being shut down.
After 10 years of providing the free online storage service, Yahoo informs its users that they have to download or delete their files on or before March 30, 2009 or else the stored files will be automatically deleted.
Yahoo is discontinuing Briefcase because users outgrew it, Yahoo said in a statement. The move will help it to focus on services that are more widely used, according to Yahoo.
As Yahoo ends it Briefcase online storage service, Microsoft now offers SkyDrive, a Windows Live service that offers 25GB of free storage. Google on the other hand is rumored to launch an online storage service called GDrive.
