Yahoo! Briefcase to Close
Yahoo! Briefcase will be closing on March 30, 2009.It's not a big loss (and we mean that not just because Yahoo! never expanded the service's storage capacity past 30 MB that's MB, not GB). Time seemed to have passed Yahoo! Briefcase by, with services such as DropBox or Microsoft's Live Mesh offering not just storage but syncing with mobile devices and other PCs.
You must download or delete your files by March 30, 2009. After this date, you will not be able to access your Yahoo! Briefcase account and your files will be deleted.
It's also true that Yahoo! needs to trim any offerings that are marginal, as new CEO Carol Bartz works to bring the company back to health. Yahoo! Briefcase's demise is simply the latest in a series of cost-cutting measures by the company, aimed at streamlining its offerings.
