In the future, we’ll be sharing previews of features to be released here in the community , but right now I wanted to share a little information about some great new features made available to you in our most recent release that can be located in the Actions dropdown on the in Folders tab on our site. I think a lot of users are going find these new features to be extremely useful, especially the new additions which are Get Link and Versions options. Read about all of these new features below, and please let us know what you think!
Actions in Folders
The Folders Tab from our website is your space to store, share, and collaborate. When you create a folder it can be used to backup all of your most precious family photos and videos, store private records, or collaborate with a business partner on an important presentation. We offer a lot of options for managing your storage. When you roll over any file or folder from the website you will see an Actions drop down (pictured above) that contains many actions you can take on the file.
What are your thoughts on these new features? We’d love to hear from you. If you have any ideas or thoughts you’d like to share, please feel free to reply in this thread. Thanks!

Versions is pretty cool. I see dozens of copies of an XLS that I've been using for a while. I guess you've been saving these all along! This will come in handy!!!

Wow the new versions feature is awesome! I store all of my flyers, brochures, other marketing material in my yousendit cloud along with my client notes and some business spreadsheets. It's great to be able to just open it up in my desktop sync app and then save it while keeping a running history of my past versions! How cool, thanks guys for the update.

Versions is definitely a handy new addition, its great to have the original copies of unedited files in the event i want to touch back on them and re edit

Personally, I would prefer the default to be that files are DELETED after the 14 days are up. This seems to be a more secure way of storing files that are sent to or that I send to others.
Also, I am quite unhappy with the new emails I'm getting indicating that a client has sent a file to my dropbox. I need a link to that file so I can send it to one of my employees so they can access the file and work on it. If I have to open up Yousendit to find that link now, this is an extra step and a huge time-waster.
Some things don't really need improving.

TODAY, ALL FILES SHARED BY THE [GET LINK] FUNCTIONNALITY ARE AVAILABLE "FOREVER".
THERE IS NO WAY TO DELETE THEM WITHOUT ASKING THE YOUSENDIT HELPDESK.
PLEASE, IMPLEMENT URGENTLY THE PERMANENT DELETION .
THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING THAT REQUEST.

The text editor of the web site isn't near as good as the text editor of the Express version.
When sending instructons to clients, it's easier with Express, but the web is preferred.

I'm still not clear about something. I'd like to sign up for online storage, but I need to know this first.
With some services, when a photo is deleted from my computer, it would subsequently fail to be stored online. (After a given interval, it would be eliminated by the host of the service, I imagine through an automated program.) I still maintain the photo on an external hard drive. I am looking for a service that would not be monitoring my computer and only retaining the photos that are still there. When I upload a file for storage, I need it to remain there until and unless I access the storage to delete it there. To me, that is true storage, as opposed to mere syncing. I am looking for a way to have an additional, long-term backup, which will supplement my external drives or be an alternative in case of a failure of my drive(s).
How exactly does your service work? I would appreciate an answer in time to take advantage of your current promotional pricing.

The desktop app does let you have "selective sync" which means you can choose which Folders you want to be on your computer, and which you only want only on the cloud.
If you're just looking for plain old offline backup, there are probably other solutions that would work better. YouSendIt is more about getting work done than storing old stuff.

hi, I appreaciate the versioning of the file accessible from the web interface.
Do you have a plan to introduce it also on the desktop version of the application? It will be very useful for customers like me that work on a daily base with the desktop app from their pc to retrieve on the fly older version of the files without having to access the web client.
thank you for your answer.
