    Mega has locked my account and will delete content in 45 days, due to going over capacity. I do have a few mega accounts, but at this point, it's getting cumbersome to keep track of them all, especially with some courses being 30+gb.

    Any suggestions on what else I can use with a larger capacity allowance? I really prefer not to pay and give access to billing info, especially since this isn't exactly content okay to share.

    I have so much shared content on here, always adding more, and would hate to lose it all. I've got to come up with a plan soon so I can transfer all of my existing content.

    Help!

    The best free storage with 50GB so far are Mega and workupload. Workupload won't allow files larger than 1GB, it will upload faster if the file is say 850MB or 930MB

    1. Create spreadsheet listing each account with contents. It doesn't have to be fully detailed. Date, size & title should be sufficient.
    2. For each Mega account create Workupload account. Mega#1 then Workupload#1 and so on.
    3. With 10 accounts of each you end up with 1TB.

    With courses over 30GB, spread em over 2 or 3 mega accounts.

    @m0rpheus What happens when active bonuses reaches the time limit? Does the content get deleted?

    I think 50 gb is permanent, you may get upto 70gb or higher but for some time, it will say drive full, don't know about deletion, I haven't keep full

    I kept one full at 50.01GB and they've been sending me messages for couple of months to delete excess.
    I simply ignore them.
    The rest of accounts I didn't exceed 47GB.

    Mega has recently updated their rules.
    If the storage goes over 20GB (new free account) everything gets eventually deleted.
    The links still function until the very last minute so if you have links you can mirror them easily.

    Mega allows you to transfer easily from one account to another, that's my best bet to solve your issue.

    Oh wow, would someone mind messaging to let me know how to do this? I thought I was going to have to re-upload everything. Revive took 2 days as it is!

    I'm on the same boat. Feel you. Account is locked and mega says it will be deleted. I made a new account and imported some of the courses I had.

    They ended up emailing again and told me that my content will be removed, unless I pay. They also made a point to say it is against TOS to create another account. Is everyone hiding their IP address? I don't right now, just because uploads take a million times longer

    I'm not doing anything to my IP. I made a new account and imported what I needed, that's all.

    1- In account A make the file you wanna move sharable (copy its link)

    2- Log in to Account 2 in another browser and paste the link of a file in a new tab

    3- When the file page loads, you should find "Import to my mega" or something like that

    4- Import the file to account 2 and then you can safely delete the file from account 1

    A VPN does what it does to shuffle the IPs - thus allows for breaking through for threshold limits for DL-ing from Mega (and others locations too that ID IP-based limiters)

    What I do is shuffle the vpn country every time it limits, is ugly but it works.
