Our one-time storage fee preserves your files permanently.

How Our Storage Fees Work

Our storage fees are a $10 per-gigabyte one time fee. You pay only for the storage you need and then you never pay for it again. You can add additional storage whenever you'd like, a gigabyte at a time.

Because we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our storage fees are a tax-deductible charitable donation. Once you have been charged for storage, we will send you a donation receipt for your records.
