Glad that you asked! 🙂
In a nutshell, we want you to have access to your data in the years and decades to come. That’s why we believe that bitsofMine is better than a service. Why? Services need to be operated continuously. Once, a service runs out of money or changes its line of business, your data will be gone.
In the case of bitsofMine your data is safe as long as the file system in which your data is stored is readable. And we believe that FAT32 will be supported for quite some time. Yes, even if for one reason or another you don’t want to use bitsofMine any longer, you will still be able to access your data!
It’s your data, not ours!
