Starting March 20 free account users will only be receiving 5GB of storage. If users fail to free up the extra space they are utilizing by deleted their data, RapidShare will do the honors by getting rid of any data that takes up space beyond the limit of 5GB on April 3. To be precise, if you have storage 15GB of data on RapidShare, the company will permanently delete 10GB of data April 3 if you fail to take any action.
