Will it be possible to get extra SSD storage in the future?

 

At this time, we have no plans to add SSD as additional storage. 

You're not serious about the prices? How impudent are you?

3€ per month for 256gb and not even SSD memory?

You can buy 256GB SSDs for 50-60€.
Outrageous, absolutely outrageous.

I resolved it by turning my shadow off, then it worked for me

The heck is the prorate line charge? A setup fee?!?

That’s not the point. This is a pure rip off. They don’t pay retail prices, exactly.

Retail price for data center drives is <16€/TB.

So considering they get better prices, do the math...your basically paying the entire purchase price.

Like getting a leasing car worth 40000€ and paying a monthly fee of 8000€ to RENT it.

 

Is additional Storage sold out in paris? I have no option to add storage in my shadow account it only says (No storage upgrade yet)

 

if i were you i would watch this link and then upgrade if possible https://account.shadow.tech/storage-management

Yes! Really needed it for Microsoft Flight Simulator so very glad that it is here!

I am trying to order but the page says ’something went wrong’.

Is it me or you? :)

 

edit: using edge and ublock (extention).

Had to disable ublock to get the order interface to load but after selecting and clicking order I get no more response.

sold out already??? since i don’t see any option to add storage. so another year to wait for additional storage? this is starting to feel like a joke. 

My guess now is that there are too many requests or so.

edit: success.

 

How it went;

Unsure of the cause still, my network/android device/hosts-blocking, but after some refreshes on a tablet, I managed to select the upgrade and after clicking confirm got to see the confirmation page.

Also, I shutdown windows and restarted/closed the shadow client on the Nvidia Shield after I got to the confirmation page.

Had the same issue the first time I went into my account, only saw the storage that is standard included. After reloading the page a couple of times I was able to order additional storage.

Hello,

 

That’s a good news. Do you plan to provide the same for American customers ?  And if yes, do you have any idea of when ?

Hello, everytime I try to confirm the storage order, it says “An error occured during an API request”. Is there something to do to solve it please ?

I have just totally shutdown it then I went to my account management, added the storage, confirmed it and everything worked. 

Btw, the storage was added instantly and my D drive wasn’t reset.

In total, my Shadow was off for like 2 min during the all buying process.

Same for me, was off for maybe 5 mins at most as I made a cuppa to give it time to shutdown before trying to add storage again

Also to clarify you leave it off until you have done with adding the storage it's not just shutdown and start again

is this only available while stock lasts or will it always be available?
