Hi all,

Hi Nick,

At the end of the month I got a bill for 120 dollars. And Amazon were quite
right - they were charging me for the 1024 GB of storage I had accidentally
asked for by not changing the default when I set up the instance.  The first
30 GB were free, the other 994 I was paying for. And I was only actually
using 1.5 GB ...

I just went through the setup process for a Tor Cloud instance in
us-east-1 (Virginia) without finding the 1024 GB of storage you say is
the new default value. Under "Storage" on the "Review Instance
Launch"-page, I see storage is set to 4 GB. Could you please go
through the setup process again and see if you can figure out where
this value was set?


Interesting ... I was using eu-west-1 (Ireland). And comparing the two, I see that us-east-1 does indeed have 4 exactly where eu-west-1 has 1024.

It had never occurred to me that the setup defaults might be different. I wonder if the usage limits and charges might be different too? I'll investigate.

Thanks everyone for responding so promptly!
