Yahoo! Briefcase Free Online Storage Closing Down

Yahoo! Briefcase, the popular free file storage service associated with Yahoo! accounts will be closing on March 30, 2009. Yahoo! advises you must either download or delete your files by March 30, 2009, after which you will not be able to access your Yahoo! Briefcase account and your files will be deleted by default.

Its nostalgic because most old-time veteran Yahoo! email users (like me) stored their files in Yahoo! briefcase; a time when the Yahoo email account offered only few MB of email storage space. But over time Yahoo email has started offering unlimited storage space (as have most other free email services), and people now store most commonly used files as email attachments, which too have grown in size. Moreover with more free online storage services expanding into the market, Yahoo briefcase was bound to face severe competition.

The ever increasing broadband internet speeds have made online files as easily accessible and downloadable as offline files on your computer with the added advantage that they can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Now lets get downloading our files from Yahoo! briefcase before I forget…

    There’s plenty of competitors available to fill their spot. Briefcase was just way behind in this one. I made a comprehensive list of online storage providers that includes a comparison chart. You can filter or sort through them based on price, storage amount, features, etc. Let me know if you find any other great ones.
