Xdrive: Going, going… Sunset!

January 20, 2009 at 10:25 am 1 comment

After two months of transition, the Xdrive service has officially closed. If you have any doubt, check out their site which simply says “Xdrive is closed”. Fortunately, the AOL team that decided to “sunset” the Xdrive product (along with AOL Pictures and the still nascent BlueString media management platform) gave the user base plenty of notice — they originally leaked the news in July of last year and then made the official announcement back in early November.

In spite of all that warning, it seems safe to assume that thousands of users will only realize that their data is toast now, when it is too late to retrieve the files.
