Are you a OneDrive user ? Microsoft announced earlier that they will be reducing the storage of FREE accounts of OneDrive to 5GB from 15GB and also the Unlimited accounts to a 1Tb limit. There was a 15Gb of FREE space for the users if they connect their media devices to the OneDrive to store the pictures and movies, Microsoft said they will be withdrawing that also.
Users reacted with this and created a campaign named “Give us back our storage” which received 72,455 votes, and Microsoft reacted positively with that.
Here is the response from the Microsoft
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, you’ll 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.
