We recently announced that all Diamond Giganews memberships were upgraded to include 30 Gigabytes of Dump Truck online storage at no additional cost and all other accounts would receive 5 Gigabytes of free storage. Giganews members asked for more WebDAV configuration options, and today we are happy to provide them.
