      • Assigned - Allows you to assign an amount of storage that takes it out of the pool and puts it only in that Group to be used
    • Value - The Limit or Assigned amount, if set to Shared it will be blank
    • Used - The amount of storage actually used/uploaded

Change Plan

This is the section where you can change your plan. Your view may not look entirely like the one shown here, as there are a few different views based on the type of plan you have. This version is the default option for most new and upgraded accounts.

 

The first part of Change Plan gives you a break down of your current plan and usage, it includes:

 

  • Resource - The type of storage
  • Current Plan - The amount of storage your plan has paid for on it
  • Used - The amount of storage you have used/uploaded
  • Change - The change your making in the plan currently
  • Updated Plan - The total your plan will be when you finish changing it

Then down below it shows two sections:

 

  • Base Plan - The base plan you've chosen
  • Add Ons - Any add ons you have purchased, such as server usage or occasionally further storage options

Then the option to either:

 

  • Submit - Clicking this will take you to the next screen to verify the plan change and any charges
  • Cancel - Will cancel any changes you're attempting to make
