We are not sure if many of you are even aware of Yahoo Briefcase, a popular file storage service from Yahoo, which never really took off, however Yahoo Briefcase has been one of the oldest online file storage service and many users still have files in their accounts as of today.
Yahoo Briefcase provided users with 30MB of free online storage space, which wouldn’t fit more than a few files today, however back in the day, those free 30MBs were definitely quite a lot.
Yahoo Briefcase is going to join the deadpool soon and will be closing down on March 30th 2009, we wanted to remind our readers to download and backup your data, on or before that date, if you do not want to lose the data hosted at Yahoo Briefcase.
The information about the closure has been circulated through a mass email to users, content of which can be seen in the image below.
Ironically this is not the first Yahoo service that is being shut down, and neither will it be the last, according to the trends from the big three Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, they have been creating new services at a faster pace, and have been shutting down quite a few too along the line.
If you are a Yahoo Briefcase user, act fast and download your files, before they are permanently deleted with this service.
