How will users be notified when pay-as-you-go CBS data disks expire?

The system estimates the number of days it takes your account balance to become negative based on the past 24 hours usage and current balance. If it’s less than 5 days, the system will send a balance alert to your Tencent Cloud account creator and all collaborators via the Message Center, email, and SMS.

What is the repossession mechanism for pay-as-you-go CBS data disks?

  • You can continue to use your Pay-as-You-Go cloud disk for 2 hours from the moment your account becomes negative. We will also continue to bill you for this period. When your account is in arrears for 2 hours, the service will automatically shut down. You cloud disk will not be available and can only store data. We will also stop billing you for service.
  • If your Tencent Cloud account is topped up to a positive balance within 24 hours after automatic shutdown, the cloud disk will be restored and billing continues.
  • If the balance is less than 0 for 24 hours after the cloud disk has services suspended, the system will repossess the pay-as-you-go disk and notify the Tencent Cloud account creator and all collaborators via email, text message, and the Message Center. After repossession, all data will be erased and cannot be retrieved.
