Although FolderShare is a free service, we do not treat it any differently
than any other service that we run.
We have made significant investments in the code since this was acquired by
Microsoft, and you will see these rolled out in the coming months.
In the mean time, please hang in there while we recover from the failures we
hit this week.
thanks again for your patience.
