    There feature has lost its charm as people can easily store files in their accounts and there are many other services online .

    Storage is now so widely available elsewhere but i think yahoo could have pushed the service a bit better . The guys at yahoo need to refocuss their business models as they seem to be drifting at the moment they seem to be resolved to just copying other services at the moment and they dont seem to be doing a good job at doing that either.

    Thanks for the reminder...mate.

    I have several of my applications and programs stored on it as back ups, since a long time. Perhaps need to find an alternative..quickly. :(

    Regards,

    Just another sign of Yahoo going down hill perhaps?

    I havent used briefcase in a long time, it was great when it first came out though.

    I haven't used Y! Briefcase but looks interesting, and, certainly there will be some users who do not want the Y! Briefcase closing..
