  • How many days of history do you keep in the cloud server ?

    It depends on your selected plan, the more storage you have, the more history of photos/videos you can hold. If upload interval is high and image quality is in high resolution, then you can keep less information compared to lower upload intervals and image quality. Available storage is always visible in the control panel. Older photos/videos are automatically deleted once you reach your storage limit.

  • What is the maximum allowed upload interval via FTP ?

    Unlimited, you can set any rate you like as long as it does not exceed your storage limit.
