    A suggestion was my choice because I can use my Bing Rewards to get more(if they don't kill that off too).
    How do you get around the location thing?

    Ooooooooohhhhhhh, you make it so simple, Cliff! Not such a big number; wonder how they'd make a hard drive to hold all that? <ducking and running>

    Largest Hard Drive in the World 24TB
    For 30,000,000TB you need 2,500,000 drives

    EDIT: 1,250,000 drives sorry

    I never tried using them, so I haven't seen that. But I get pop-ups telling me to use them from Bing Maybe because being an that my PC is set up for US ENG(I'm an American ex-pat). But if they go by ISP then it will not work. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for bringing that to my attention @halasz.

    Nope don't work:
    Sorry, we can't create your account right now. For help, contact Bing Rewards Customer Support
    Oh well, then option two, I start using Google's 15GB(comes with Chrome and my Gmail account) for simple data, and I'll leave my OneDrive 5GB(still a lot) for OneNote and sharing.

    I have used the Bing 100GB free OneDrive bonus without an issue simply by setting the region in Bing to US (on Bing.com, go to settings, select region on the left pane and change it to US). Now you can sign up for Bing Rewards and get the OneDrive bonus.

    Thanks Kari, I always have it and my PC set to US regional. I have just tried a couple of times to sign up, and keep getting the same as post# 127. Maybe another time or day it'll work.
