Can I use GitHub as free unlimited cloud storage? or do i have to go with bitbucket

Sun Dec 16, 2018 2:09 am

hello and good evening dear Raspi - experts,



Can I use GitHub as free unlimited cloud storage?

well i guess no

btw: I have found out the following:
https://help.github.com/articles/what-is-my-disk-quota/
https://help.github.com/articles/about- ... dth-usage/


conclusion: well - i guess that the github folders are public unless to pay for service?

but wait: What about Bitbucket:

this seems to be a good idea - Bitbucket has free private repos.

love to hear from you
yours buddy

Sounds like you want to abuse what they're offering. Best to check directly with bitbucket first.

And yes, as far as I understand it, github private repos are only available to paying users.
Note to self: don't feed the trolls

If I've asked you a question, please answer it. I'm unlikely to be able to help without that information.
