"Amazon now offers an unlimited online storage plan in place of our prior plans, which offered tiered levels of storage. Our new Unlimited Storage plan lets you store as many videos, photos, documents, and other files as you like.

What happens to my current plan?

The new unlimited plans have replaced all previous storage plans, including the free 5 GB plan. All of your stored photos, videos, and files are still accessible in Amazon Drive, but you will need to start a three-month free trial of the Unlimited Storage plan to upload more files to your account.

Go for Google Drive

I don't see why you should grumble. It's their storage system and have the right to charge for it. I have Amazon Drive but keep all the same files on Google Drive and Dropbox.

Do people really still think everything computer related that isn't physical hardware in your hand should be free?
Amazon may make a shed load of money, they still need to make it. Especially if people don't subscribe to any of their services.

Excellent news, I was waiting for them to bring over their unlimited storage that they've had in the US for a while.

£55 a year, bargain price.

Though your 30TB of porn will take 17 years, 3 months, 14 hours to upload.

I personally wouldn't store anything on any companies cloud storage unless it was my own , that's my opinion anyway.

Why?

I use Sookasa for certain files

...so you cannot access it, but that won't stop Amazon having a quick look once in a while.

You may as well stick all your information in an envelope & put it in the street.

Just as safe... in fact, probably safer as only a few people will be able to access it, rather than anybody with a PC & sufficient know-how if the data is stored online.

Does that really matter if content is not that important (MP3 files)? Is there anyway to have anything that is 100% secure that is cloud based? I do use Sookasa but for me it's the controlled removal of shared links that is it's selling point.

Do you regularly share MP3 files with others?

No.

Even if the level of external security is so difficult to circumvent, it would not be attempted, there is always the risk of unauthorised internal access by the vendor, or if the vendor's business is sold & the new owner then holds your files outside of the initial terms of the agreement to store them on your behalf.

Just rename/move the files you no longer wish to share with a direct link provided to somebody else.

I thought cloud storage was secure till Opera browser had a massive security breach. I used their Opera link for my passwords and bookmarks, it was very convenient for all the different devices I use. I was thinking at the time wow wouldn't this be the jackpot for a hacker. Spent a week changing all my passwords. The week the hack happened someone tried accessing my EA account...and a letter from my bank saying they've reset my security as someone has tried multiple times to reset my details.
