    Give us back our storage – Feature Suggestions for Microsoft OneDrive
    AdminDouglas Pearce(Group Program Manager, Microsoft) responded Dec 11, 2015 In November we made a business decision to reduce storage limits for OneDrive. Since then, weve heard clearly from our Windows and OneDrive fans about the frustration and disappointment we have caused. We realize the announcement came across as blaming customers for using our product. For this, we are truly sorry and would like to apologize to the community.

    While we are not changing our overall plans, wed like to clarify what we are doing for customers impacted by the changes and share a new offer which we hope will go a long way in making the situation better for our biggest fans.

    Office 365 Home, Personal, and University subscriptions will continue to include 1 TB of storage. Any subscriber who received additional storage as part of our unlimited offer will keep it for at least 12 months. For anyone unhappy with the decision to not offer unlimited storage, we will offer a full refund.

    For customers of our free service who have over 5 GB of content and who are directly impacted by the storage change, we will offer one free year of Office 365 Personal, which includes 1 TB of storage. These customers will receive an email with redemption information early next year.

    In addition, for our biggest fans who have been loyal advocates for OneDrive, we are adding a new offer that lets you keep your existing 15 GB of free storage when the changes happen next year. If you also have the 15 GB camera roll bonus, youll be able to keep that as well. From now until the end of January, you can sign up to keep your storage at the link below.

    We are all genuinely sorry for the frustration this decision has caused and for the way it was communicated. Thank you for sticking with us.

    Why do links show up with these weird characters? I've been wondering about this for ages. Is it some language ID setting I've got wrong or does it show the same for everyone?

    And thanks for the link @Cliff, I signed up to it yesterday (including taking the non-optional "send me lots of emails" option...)

    From what I've figured out, it seems they are caused by punctuation marks, such as apostrophe or accent marks.
