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

    I never use one drive even though its there. I never used it on windows 8.1 either. I never got into office 365 either.

    Disappointing news, I used Onedrive to save photos and music, for sure in the near future 5gbs will not be sufficient for my photos.

    Good job I kept Googles backup.

    How to Uninstall OneDrive completely in Windows 10 ? here are the instructions! http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...7fe6994?auth=1

    While I agree that knocking down to only 5gb for free is bad, you still cant beat an O365 subscription. You get 1TB for as little as 6.99 a month and the full Office suite.

    Where Office 365 really shines is that for $9.99 per month you get to install on five computers and five tablets plus you get up to 5 TBs on OneDrive; that's 1 TB for each user. But that's not all . . . O365 is always up to date with all the latest features.

    This ain't yer mama's Microsoft Office . . .

    Agreed, that Office 365 really is a no brainer. Its $99 a year, you get 5 installs, you can share with friends and family.

    If you dont need 5 copies for $69 a year, you get 1 copy.

    Not long ago, Microsoft announced its decision to reduce the amount of free storage offered to OneDrive users, but most of those who already own an account were disappointed to see that the company was going exactly in the opposite direction as compared to what it had promised last year.

    Previously, Redmond said it wanted OneDrive to become the one cloud storage service for everyone, offering not only excellent reliability and superior speeds but also the biggest amount of free space on the web.

    But recently, the company went into reverse and decided to reduce the free space offered to unpaying users from 15 GB to 5 GB, while also removing the free unlimited storage option for Office 365 customers.

    The Spook is Half Over(if you're fast)


    Microsoft Decides Not to Reduce Free OneDrive Storage Anymore After Public Backlash

    “We apologize to the community,” Microsoft says

    Microsoft announced last month that it would cut the amount of free OneDrive storage from 15 GB to just 5 GB and remove the unlimited storage account for Office 365 customers, but this decision backfired very quickly, with many threatening to jump ship to Google and Dropbox.
    After one month of criticism, Microsoft now says that it has more or less changed its mind, and while the storage cuts will not be modified, users who have more than 5 GB of data in their account can keep their 15 GB quota by signing in at this link.
    Making this an opt-in means that users who are not aware of the change could actually see their storage dropping to 5 GB early next year, and Microsoft doesn't seem to be willing to promote this way to keep the 15 GB of storage space.
    No more unlimited storage

    As far as unlimited storage is concerned, it won't be coming back, and Microsoft says that Office 365 accounts will be reduced to just 1 TB of storage. But Microsoft is trying to sweeten the change in this case too by keeping the unlimited storage option available for an extra 12 months after the changes come into effect.
    “For anyone unhappy with the decision to not offer unlimited storage, we will offer a full refund,” Redmond says.
