    MS Downgrades free Onedrive storage, ends unlimited for Office 365

    Microsoft has announced radical changes to its OneDrive cloud storage service, ending unlimited storage for Office 365 users. Free storage is also being decreased from 15GB to 5GB for all users. The reason for the scaling back of storage comes after Microsoft found that a few customers were using up to 75TB of cloud storage from a single account

    That is terrible news - especially cutting the free storage from 30GB (with camera roll) to 5GB.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    It's the free 30GB down to 5GB which is a shame
    Many people have been using Onedrive to put there music collection on there (linked into Groove), now if they have more than 5GB of music they will have to pay for storage

    this is all i needed to know to conclude google drive is much better than onedrive, M$ always cheats, I wonder what they can do with windows 10 we don't know yet, just in case there are more M$ surprises I found my Windows 7 DVD and prepared latest ubuntu on a pendrive

    Worth making sure you are over 5GB by EOY if you don't already own office then :)

    Free users who are over 5 GB of storage and thus affected by this change can claim a free 1-year subscription to Office 365 Personal*.

    Nowhere seems to mention my 10 GB loyalty bonus - do I get to keep that?

    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!
