    Hi all,

    I have exceeded my 10GB photobucket storage, now when i log in i get account restricted pop up (which i cannot close X) which directs me to pay per month storage options.

    I want to access the account so i can delete and make more space, however it seems it wont let me:dk:

    Anyone know how to get round this other then open new account with new email addy?

    Thanks.

    No...you can't get near anything on the home screen, you must click the go to upgrade label.

    Same here...but as of today they try force you to upgrade...however just tried it via phone app and i can access the account, just deleted a whole year of mobile uploads which has now reduced storage to 99.43%:thumb:, so not in the red anymore, and no upgrade pop up lol:D:rolleyes:


    Luckily all my photos are backed up with google so i can delete whatever...

    Consider transferring all photos to Flickr. Instead of the low 2GB of free storage that Photobucket offer, Flickr will give you 1TB.
    Just as easy to navigate and as long as you trust Yahoo for security (remember the email password fiasco), what's not to like?
