Yahoo's online storage space will be closing it's doors on March 30th.
Users of the free service, which lets people upload files as big as 5MB and organize them in folders, are being greeted by a message that says they have to download or delete their files by March 30. After that, the accounts will be closed and files deleted.
Other services, such as Yahoo Mail and Flickr, offer far greater storage capacity, and the use of Briefcase has fallen in recent years, the company said. The move will help it to focus on services that are more widely used, according to Yahoo.

    I don't use this and now I'm glad I don't. The Yahoo Mail is okay though, for the moment??? Thanks for the heads up!

    I wonder why they don't just merge it with flickr or one of their other existing services. I've not used Briefcase in a few years, but it seems like that would make sense instead of just pulling the plug.

    I guess the cost to create a way to merge it or just the time it would take to create something is just not in the budget right now.I guess one will just have to take their files,and move them their self.

    Yahoo is not leading at anything as of right now.They need to figure out if they want to be a search company or a media company they are failing badly trying to be both.
