An email received from Yandex Customer Support last year :

You have received this message because you use our program,
Yandex.Disk for Windows, and have recently updated it.

Unfortunately, an error was made in one of the latest versions that may,
in rare cases, lead to the crash of your computer’s operating system.

For this reason, we ask you to make sure that you have installed a stable version
of the program on your computer: versions 1.1.8 and later.

We apologize if the program has caused you any problems. It is very important for us
that we keep your trust. That’s why we have completely reviewed the process of
developing and testing our projects in order to avoid such errors in the future.

In order to make up for this error, we have increased the space available to you on
Yandex.Disk by 200 GB.

Stay with us.
