We have recently done an internal auditing about service abuse from free service users. We have noticed that some user accounts have over 150,000 to 2,000,000 FTP logons, which is an extremely high number!
Please note: (1) The free service is designed for personal and casual use only. (2) Generally speaking, DriveHQ FTP service is designed for use by real human beings.
More than 150000 FTP logons must come from automatic devices or software (e.g. surveilance camera or key logger), which creates a huge load on our FTP servers and is considered a service abuse. Based on this, we have disabled a number of user accounts. We have also added restrictions to free service users. From now on, free service users can only logon our FTP server for:
1000 + 100 x "days since sign-up DriveHQ membership" times
The number should be far more than enough for regular users.
If your account is disabled and if you have a legitimate reason to logon so many times, we will consider re-enabling your account. However, you will need to pay for the service.
If your account is not disabled and if FTP logon is blocked, you will also need to pay for the service. We currently have not limited paid members. However, paid members are also subject to fair use.
