Datamailbox limitation for Talk2M free account


#1

Hello,

I understand this question has been asked several times in the past. But I am still confused about the 500,000 data point/month for Talk2M free account. Here are two references
(1) DataMailBox limitation
(2) Limitations of Datamailbox from Free to Pro
In the first reference, it is clear that anything beyond 500,000 won’t be stored because “Once you hit that limit, all subsequent entries are no longer stored.”

In the second reference (thread 5/8), my understanding is that the total storage is 500,000/month and anything beyond this number will be stored with older data overwritten. Citation “For example if I logged 10 million points I would only get the latest 500k? (confirmed by HMS later)”

These two explanations are contradictory with each other. Could you please explain which one is the correct understanding in this subject?

Thank you very much!

Sorry for the confusion. it’s the storage amount that is limited, not the number of transactions, so the second reference you mention is more accurate. If you logged 10,000,000 points only the most recent 500,000 will be stored as the first 9,500,000 have been overwritten.
