When Amazon launched their new unlimited storage tier yesterday they gave their customers more storage than you can shake a stick at, but they also quietly killed the free storage which they used to offer their customers.
A couple readers have told me, and I have confirmed, that Amazon is no longer offering the free 5GB storage tier.
Update: Amazon reports that the SendToKindle conversion service did break, but they fixed it.
I just found out this morning that sending files from my PC to my Kindle Paperwhite doesn't work anymore. Amazon has nullified two of the features that made the Kindle better than any other ebook platform, while at the same time making the platform less useful to Amazon's customers. I don't understand why they did that, so I have queried Amazon on the matter. And while they're at it, I would hope that Amazon will extend the free 5GB to Kindle app users as well (it would be silly to leave them out in the cold).
Given that the Kindle help pages still say that Kindle owners can store personal documents on Amazon Cloud Drive, I think there's a 50-50 chance that this really was a mistake, technical or otherwise.
Your 5 GB plan is no longer available and has been replaced with a free 3-month trial of one of the Unlimited plans.
Send to Kindle is not the same as emailing a document…so let me see if I can make what I was trying to say more clear. Apparently that sentence is saying that anyone who is paying for Cloud Drive can upload as many Kindle docs as they like.
Just as long as Send To Kindle still works, I’m not too outraged about the loss of cloud drive space. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong if Amazon wants to make Cloud Drive a premium service.
However, if other services comparable to the Kindle (like Fire) still get cloud space, that is an insult to Kindle users.
Am I to understand that unless I pay the yearly subscription I’ll be forced to keep all of my purchased books on my actual device moving forward? The subscription would just be for storing personal documents in the cloud, not the ebooks you buy at Amazon.
The ebooks you buy at Amazon are archived elsewhere, not the cloud, unless you specifically SEND them to the cloud.
This is not a good thing for those of us who use the Kindle for reading docs professionally. Actually, I buy ebooks on my account (epub or Amazon), and then send them to her via mail to Kindle.
Since she’s a total non-tech woman, with no access to a credit card (and a few hundred kilometers from my home), that solution was ideal.
Actually Tymber, when I did my experiment with registering my Kindle to a new account I was able to send personal documents to the Kindle cloud without having Prime. Maddy, none of this has anything to do with your Kindle books–neither the ones you have bought from Amazon, or the ones that you have sent to your Kindle cloud using either your Kindle email address or the Send to Kindle app.
The worst part is that they folded the Personal Document storage into Cloud Drive about three years ago, and they still refer to Cloud Drive in the current Personal Documents help page.
Note the difference…both of these are in the KINDLE cloud, not the Amazon Cloud drive storage. I am new to Prime and I am wondering how to store my already read books onto my cloud storage? I don’t know how many photos you took, but I am concerned that you may have photos stored online which are no longer on your Fire tablet.
For the past two plus years Amazon has offered Kindle users 5GB of cloud storage for their personal files.
Amazon announced today that the Kindle Cloud Storage, as a distinct entity, is going away.  Kindle users will now be able to find and manage their files in the Amazon Cloud Drive. Kindle users will still have the same 5GB that Amazon gave us when they debuted Kindle Cloud Storage in September 2011, it's just going to be easier to use. I just got an email from Amazon, telling me that I would be migrating to Cloud Drive, it is therefore NO LONGER FREE to store things I want to upload to my Kindle. What that email was supposed to have told you was that Kindle files now have their own special place on Amazon’s servers.

Fortunately, this didn’t cause much of a problem as I was able to connect to my cloud storage account, upload some bulky data and then download the new book to my device.
If you are lucky enough to own an Amazon Kindle Fire, then you should already know that the tablet has just 8 GB of internal storage. Initially, you should know that your Kindle will share data with the Amazon Cloud, where details of your book, music and video purchases are stored.

Should your device be stolen or you opt to wipe it, the Amazon Cloud will enable you to download favourite books, films and audio purchased through Amazon and the Kindle Store and rented through Amazon Prime. Technically there is no physical limit to this storage, although of course you can’t use it for your day to day cloud storage requirements. By default, the Kindle Fire only has the Amazon Cloud storage; alternatives to this are not available through the Amazon App Store. First, you will need to root your Kindle Fire to afford access to the Google Play Store (the new name for the Android Market). If this is not something you are prepared to do, your other choice is to download solutions from alternative app stores, accessible via the Kindle Fire’s browser. Various cloud storage apps are available for Android-based devices, but with a device like the Kindle Fire you need more than just more storage – you need tools for managing your data as well. Google Drive – naturally once you have rooted your Kindle Fire, you will have access to Google Drive via the Play Store. Astro File Manager – although not a cloud solution, this (or any similar file manager) is vital for browsing your rooted Kindle Fire so that you can find data that you might like to save to your chosen cloud storage service. When all is said and done, 8 GB is adequate for reading eBooks, but limiting to anyone who wants to store a good deal of music or video on their tablet.
Taking advantage of the various file manager applications that can be installed on Android tablets will help you to stay on top of any potential storage-filling downloads and delete unwanted files if necessary.

Amazon's naming scheme for its various consumer electronics devices is, at best, confusing. Amazon also has a growing collection of Android apps and all of them have been tested through fire by Amazon so that they’d run smoothly on your Amazon Kindle Fire. For the audiophiles and music lovers, Amazon has a mind-boggling collection of 17 million songs in its Amazon MP3 Store–all ready for you to stream to your Kindle Fire or to download for later listening. And, for the techie among you, part of the whole package that gives the Amazon Kindle Fire its amazing display capability is the dual-core 1.0-GHz Texas Instruments OMAP processor and its 512 MB of RAM. If you own a Kindle, check your Amazon Cloud Drive: you should now have ten gigabytes of cloud-based storage, twice as much as before. On Wednesday, Amazon emailed its Kindle customers to let them know their Kindle documents had been integrated with their Cloud Drive, resulting in a combined ten gigs of free Amazon Cloud Drive storage. Your Cloud Drive stuff can be accessed via the browser or using the rather clunky CloudDrive OS X app which requires a Java SE 6 runtime. According to Charlie Sorrel of Cult of Mac, this integration between Kindle documents and Cloud Drive works one way only.
If you load personal documents onto your Kindle, those documents will now be available in your free Cloud Drive, ready to access in the web site. You’re still stuck mailing the things in (if you want Whispersync to work) or just dumping them onto all your devices via USB (without Whispersync support). Although Amazon automatically converts common document file types like Microsoft Word and .TXT to Kindle-friendly formats, the original files still get stored in your Cloud Drive. I don’t own a Kindle so my Cloud Drive is still languishing back on the 5GB free tier.
The online retail giant has a nicely done iPhone and iPad app, free in the App Store, for your Cloud Drive Photos. Amazon is rumored to launch its smartphone soon and Cloud Drive should be a big part of that, just like Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets and the new Fire TV set-top box are tied to the Amazon cloud. The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7 is an Android OS powered tablet, which is the successor of the first Kindle Fire tablet. Also, Kindle owners now have a separate place to store the personal documents they SendToKindle which Amazon says "will no longer count against your Cloud Drive storage limits".
Because Amazon has killed the free 5GB option for all Cloud Drive users, and people are now forced to choose a yearly Cloud Drive plan in order to still be able to use the Send-to-Kindle feature. Right now I am hoping that they will respond with the explanation that this was a mistake, and that they will fix it. I’ve got a Kindle Paperwhite and I buy books on a regular basis and have them delivered automatically.

That I will no longer be able to “remove from device” and send it to the cloud for storage? I got the email yesterday but my big question is I have a kindle fire, kindle paperwhite and kindle app on my iPad. Why doesn’t Amazon just make so that you get a certain amount of free cloud storage and then if you need more you can pay for extra storage.
I don’t have a kindle anymore but do have the app on my computer and my tablet and my phone. This space was in addition to and completely separate from any other storage space users might have on Amazon's servers, and readers could use it to store the personal ebooks that they were reading on their Kindle ebook readers and apps. All of a Kindle users existing documents will be transferred over, and in the future the new documents that readers save to the cloud with the Send to Kindle email feature will be saved in their original format. Your personal files will still be accessible from the Manage Your Kindle page, and if you want to send stuff to your Kindle you will still need to use the "Send to Kindle" tools.
At long last Amazon has decided to rationalize the storage space they give to Kindle users. It made far more sense to have one location for all of my files than to have to manage 2 separate clouds on Amazon's servers. Any content you buy from Amazon is archived for free, and any documents you email to your Kindle account will be archived for free.

For this, you will need to find the best cloud storage solutions for Android tablets (the operating system found “under the bonnet” on the Kindle Fire). As such, you will need to find another way to install the suggestions which we will go into shortly.
This provides the ability to not only to create and edit documents that are then stored in the cloud, but also to upload photos and videos. Like Google Drive, items uploaded to DropBox are available from any device, allowing you to easily share and swap files between computers and your Kindle Fire. Our judgement is in no way biased, and our recommendations are always based on the merits of the items. This in turn offers several advantages to the user, such as an increase in functionality via previously restricted apps. After years of anticipation, hype, and fervent discussion, it's time to take the wrapper off Hello Games' procedural space simulation for PS4 and PC. But if you want to do it the other way, uploading the documents to the My Send-To-Kindle Docs folder and then sending them to your Kindle, you’re out of luck.
The software has been redesigned for iOS 7 earlier this week, adding new features such as Timeline and more. Depending on the kind of device someone has, they might still have storage (I’m hearing varying reports, and those who still do have the service might just not have had the changes rolled out to their accounts yet). All thebooks that I buy on amazon are on these devices but if I have not read them yet they are on the cloud part of my kindle does that mean I have to download them to my device right away and I receive ebooks from an author since I’m on her street team does that mean I need to get cloud storage and pay for it. By combining it with the Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon is both simplifying the management issues and giving Kindle users a better suite of tools for managing their personal documents (the manage your kindle page is terrible, simply terrible). If you want to find out for yourself, go ahead and take a look at the Amazon Kindle Fire page.
There are many companies (including my publisher) who allow people to purchase books on their sites and directly send to Kindle.
They should not just change this, especially for their loyal users who have paid $$$ for books over the years. That’s costing Amazon money not just in lost sales from it not being a direct purchase, but also in the cloud storage space. Julie on Did You Know Audible Will Steal Away Your Credits If You Cancel Your Membership?"balked at the idea of paying" At least that way, though, I didn't lose my credits.
As Amazon has built up market share, especially with the cloud storage, they’re realizing they have to expand the capabilities but to do so without it crippling their bottom line.
