Bitcasa infinite storage: the anatomy of a failure

I have to admit that I was greedy … I mean, there is nobody in the market promising Infinite storage as a hard drive in the cloud that never runs out of space.

Hell, this is better than any hard drive !

So, I gave it a try… more than 1.5 years ago:

I was busy and forgot about it. From time to time I received some emails which I erased.

Until… I started to be flooded by emails from them: 11 emails in 3 weeks.

all-email

Bitcasa gives you 10 GB for free ! Or at least this is what they say.

This would be absolutely OK if I would actually run out of space…

I do not have any files uploaded, but still, I receive that I am out of space.

Is this a marketing gag to force me to become a paying customer?

Well, it doesn’t work !

Goodbye Bitcasa…

Unfortunately, it is not possible to erase your account.

 

Update:

The saga continues:
