What are the differences in Pro and Business plans?
Pro and Business plans include: no ads, content embedding options, file selling features, direct links (limited by traffic) before switching to P2P mode, multi user management, detailed security logs, support, customization/branding options etc.
Can I use Files.fm Backup, Sync, Windows/macOS/Android apps?
When you subscribe to a Pro or Business account, you can use them to create encrypted private Backups or Sync your PC. 1TB permanent storage does not give you Paid subscription features.
An external hard drive is cheaper, why should I buy this instead?
One hard drive has a 2% -10% chance of failure and data is remotely accessible.
Is it a limited offer?
"Permanent Storage" is a limited offer related to 10 year anniversary of Files.fm until we have the inventory. It is currently allowed to purchase several terabytes - add to existing accounts.
Why you are doing this?
Because users showed interest and we wanted to celebrate our 10th anniversary with a good deal that is useful to our users.
How can you support that in a long term?
Hard disks are getting bigger, storage support costs less, in five years it will not be a huge deal to support that + we still have premium PRO/Business recurring plans.
Do you charge for upload/download traffic?
We do not charge for download/upload traffic in reasonable "personal" amounts. To support higher traffic or bandwidth needs, we use Peer-to-Peer supported download mode and P2P streaming video player that works in a web browser. See how it works here: https://files.fm/f/qqm86vv9
What are your plans for next 10 years?
We will work on expanding the functionality of file storage, sharing and content sales
Lifetime? How can I be sure you won`t quit in a year?
Files.fm has been around for 10 years now and we have many loyal users who have been with us for years. We have no plans to stop doing this and are constantly developing more convenient and faster storage solutions for our product.
Cloud storage VS Hard drive?

What is the purpose of Files.fm tokens?
The storage you buy is tied to Files.fm tokens in your account: 1 FFM token = 100MB.
What exactly are Files.fm Tokens?
FFM token is a digital asset (ERC20 standard utility token) based on the Ethereum blockchain technology, that gives you rights to use Files.fm private cloud storage, for as long as you have them in your wallet. In the future, FFM tokens can also be used as a unit of account between users, publishers and content creators within Files.fm platform and Library.
Why should I care about those tokens?
There is no need for you to research them if you do not wish to. In that case, you will simply have 1 TB permanent storage. However, in the future you will also be able to use them in our services and this can serve as a convenient way to explore the world of tokens and blockchain, should you ever wish to.
How can I get FFM tokens?
You can buy them or earn via https://files.fm/#referral form by helping us spread the word. In the future you will also be able to earn them by doing useful work on the platform.
Do you have a referral/affiliate/bounty/airdrop program?
What if I spend some of the tokens? Will all of my storage go away?
No, for as long as you hold some tokens in your account, you will have the respective amount of private storage available. For example, if you have 9000 FFM, you will have 900 GB.
