How to check how much storage or space you have left towards the end of the month.

In PowerPress, when you hit choose file scroll to the bottom and you will see how much space you have left for the month.

In the Blubrry podcaster dashboard, go to “manage published files” and scroll to the bottom and you will find the same information there.

You can upgrade your plan at any time, in the billing section of the dashboard by clicking “Change Plan”. It will be pro-rated and you will get the additional space right away.

If you have more than one show in your blubrry.com account and have an issue with one of them, PLEASE tell us what show you are asking about. Send screenshots that are fullscreen, much easier to troubleshoot when we see exactly what you see. Send lots of information the first time and it makes it easier and faster for us to help you out.
