Microsoft OneDrive update

News from Microsoft about OneDrive
  • Subscribers to Office 365 non-business editions (Home, Personal, and University), will receive 1 TB of OneDrive storage per user. For the small number of OneDrive users who had their storage allotment boosted to 10 TB and have used some or all of that space, the extra storage will continue to be available for at least 12 months. A full refund is available for any customer who isn't satisfied with that decision.

  • Anyone with a free OneDrive account who currently has more than 5 GB of content stored will receive one free year of Office 365 Personal, which includes 1 TB of storage. This offer will arrive via email early next year.

  • For OneDrive customers who currently have a 15 GB free storage allotment and a 15 GB camera roll bonus, Microsoft is offering to preserve those features, but only for those who opt in using this link, which is valid until January 31, 2016.

  • All OneDrive customers with free accounts who do not opt in to the loyalty offer will see their free storage cut to 5 GB and the camera roll bonus will disappear.
