    Nowhere seems to mention my 10 GB loyalty bonus - do I get to keep that?
    Not really clear is it?

    Maybe. "The storage you have as part of other promotions is not affected by this change."

    Now that Microsoft knows all about each individual user, why can't they just dump the 75TB of stored files back to the owners in a personalized Windows Update - that'd teach 'em!
    Sounds fair to me.

    I can upload only 3 GB a day - it would take me over 70 years to upload 75TB.

    What can I say - I sympathize with you, but maybe technology will improve during the rest of your lifetime. I don't plan to hang around that long.

    LOL! How could Microsoft not know that if they offered Unlimited space that there are people who are going to use it, some would say abuse it but I say there is no such thing on an Unlimited plan, before you object, look up the definition of Unlimited.
    Any way I never "abused" it because I never had Unlimited, but OneDrive says I have 128GB of free space, I'm not really sure how I got so much, but will really be upset with them if I suddenly only have 5GB. Really liked OneDrive because its integrated into my Windows Desktop and Windows Phone, but if they cut my storage space that much I will be looking at other services.

    Now we know that Microsoft is really worrying about profits over the next few years if they can't afford to supply free storage to users at the rates they could before...

    I don't think it's got anything to do with profits, it's more about how are they going to be able to give anyone any free storage, if you've got people taking up 14,000 times more than the average person.

    I can't even get my head around uploading 75TB of data.

    I don't think this will not really effect me. Right now I have 15 GB free, 15 GB Camera Roll bonus and 100 Gb Free Bing bonus(good until 02/18/17). Out of that I'm only using 9 GB. If I'm reading it right I'll only lose 10 GB of the free storage and I'll be able to keep the free 15 Gb Camera Roll bonus and the free 100 GB Bing bonus until it runs out in 2017. Then I have the option of keeping the 100 GB if I want to pay for it. IMHO because of the abuse MS should just eliminate the unlimited storage plan.

    Don't think so.
    The 15 GB camera roll storage bonus will also be discontinued.
