I'd like to use my Inmotion server to backup non-website files. Is there a limit to this, in terms of policy and disk space? (I have a basic account.) Thanks.

Hi Kurt, and thanks for asking for clarification on this. Using accounts like those on the Shared Hosting plans for file storage is currently not allowed per our terms of service. We usually suggest using a service designed for long term data storage, such as Dropbox, Google drive, or Amazon S3 (we have a few guides specifically on using S3 to store backups). Hope that helps!
