    From an email by Amazon regarding my personal account, Amazon Drive has eliminated the Unlimited File Storage option - effective today - and introduced tiered pricing for new and renewing users. UL data storage will not be grandfathered - existing users will be bumped to tiered pricing when the term expires.

    The $70 that bought UL yesterday gets a whopping 1TB, and there's no "break" for multiple TBs. I'm guessing that with Apple and MS moving to different services, Amazon will need additional revenue streams. /r New Amazon Drive Pricing.png

    As bad as this is, it's still one of the best deals going. Backblaze was an absolute nightmare for me. Eventually i started to research stories online about how Backblaze backups had been unreliable for some - which defeats the purpose of backup altogether. Anyway, after months and months of unsuccessful uploading to BB, i pulled the plug and switched to Arq + Amazon (Cloud) Drive. I haven't looked back once.
