WUALA SHUTDOWN NOTICE

Dear Wuala Subscriber,

THIS NOTICE CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR WUALA ACCOUNT AND THE DATA STORED IN YOUR ACCOUNT. PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE CAREFULLY.

Today we are announcing plans to discontinue Wuala secure cloud storage service. Please note the following important dates:

  • 17 August 2015: No further renewals or purchase of storage
  • 30 September 2015: Wuala service will transition to read-only
  • 15 November 2015: Wuala service terminates and all data stored in the Wuala cloud will be deleted.

Effective as of today, you will no longer be able to purchase storage or renew existing accounts. Full account service will continue through 30 September 2015, at which point all active accounts will shift to read-only mode. Effective Sunday, 15 November 2015, the Wuala cloud service will terminate.
Please download the content in your Wuala account and safely backup it to your PC, Mac, external hard drive or another cloud storage provider. After 15 November 2015, you will no longer have access to your content, which will be deleted. Please use this time to download and backup the content stored in your Wuala account.

Customers who have an active prepaid annual subscription will be eligible to receive a refund for any unused subscription fees. Your refund will be calculated based on a termination date effective from today’s date, even though the full service will remain active until 30 September 2015 and your data will be available until 15 November 2015. Refunds will be automatically processed and issued to eligible customers in coming weeks. Some exceptions apply.

 

Some Alternatives

Hostjury has put together a list of file sharing companies, linked to their profile and review pages. While comprehensive, it is by no means a complete listing. As is the HostJury custom, the list is presented in no particular order and we makes no recommendation or endorsement of any web hosting providers... or in this case, file sharing and data storage companies.
