When I return to the basic plan from a paid plan do I still have my old "earned" space available?

Hello!

 

Well, the subject asks it all, I guess:

 

When I return to the basic plan from a paid plan (which i want to check out but maybe cancel later) do I still have my old "earned" space available - or do I start from scratch?

 

Thanks for any help!

 

Kind regards,

Jens Olaf

Yes, though any referral space you had earned would have doubled when you upgraded to a paid plan, so it will be halved back to what it was when you go back to a non-paid plan. Basically, referrals are 500Mb each when you're on a free plan and 1Gb each when you're on a paid plan.
