    I tried using a US proxy, US on account and PC and it doesn't work... Must have missed something, just not sure what.

    I still haven't activated Bing Rewards; I'm told it's good, but well . . .

    Yes, I'm in agreement about the OS and Apps that need the cloud.

    I just had a thought . . . Microsoft wants to have one billion (don't have enough fingers and toes) users and when the bean counters got the information, they almost messed their pant(ie)s up! Can you imagine what 15 GB plus 15 GB Camera roll would come to times a billion!? (Still don't got enough fingers and toes!) 30 billion GB!? It boggles the mind!
    Not only people's live copy on OneDrive, but Microsoft has to keep a backup (Raid, offline, multiple duplicate data centers, etc), so you can take those numbers and probably double or triple them for storage space used. YIKES!

    Try this:

    • Set PC location USA
    • Reboot
    • Sign in to Bing
    • Set Bing location any US city
    • Set Bing region US


    That's how I did it. I have the 100 GB Bing bonus on most of my MS accounts. When done, click the medal icon top right on bing.com and join:

    When done set the PC location and Bing location & region back to what they were previously, this stops constant Bing Rewards pop-ups and ads and unsubscribe Bing Rewards newsletters when the first email arrives.

    I sat down and calculated that it would take me 3.8 years of uploading 24x7x365 to get 75TB into the cloud.

    Hmmm, maybe there're a whole lot of users on one account uploading to OneDrive to get that much. Feasible? Or not?
