    Now that OneDrive is being crippled, whats the best way to wirelessly move music onto your Windows Phone and Xbox? Without that storage space, Groove streaming is essentially dead. So whats the next best thing?

    We go to Mega. They offer 50gb for free. A nobrainer.

    I would too, but I want to be able to wirelesly sync my music to my WP. I dont think Google lets you do that.

    Photos and phone docs will stay at OneDrive, while other office docs will move to Google drive. No choice if not going to pay.

    I'm disappointed. I JUST learned about the magic of putting music on OneDrive and being able to play it on WP or a computer without having said computer store those files. I'll have to figure something out now since music can take up a good amount of space. You can decrease the size of a picture to upload to OneDrive but not a music file. Ahhh

    I guess this is where I would plug my Copy account's referral link but I'm locked out of my account and support hasn't gotten back to me. How convenient. :(

    Take a look at numerous threads on this forum and news items all over the Internet. You might as well Google "OneDrive" since you may want to move everything back to them. In short, starting in 2016 free storage will get crippled down to 5GB, you can purchase 50GB for $2 per month, or get 1TB with a subscription to Office365. Other tiers going away. No more "unlimited."

    I'm curious about what the soon-to-be-scroogled's OneDrive accounts look like.

    If you are a Document-heavy person, why don't you have Office 365? It gives you 1 TB of storage, which is quite a bit.
    If you love Groove, why don't you have a Groove Music Pass? It's $30 for a year every Christmas, or $130 in their yearly bundles with Office and whatnot, and it gives you an extra 100 GB on OneDrive too.

    I am a heavy OneDrive user. I have 2 PCs fully backed up there, use it on my Lumia 1520, Xbox 360 and my Xbox One as well. Currently I have 184,261 files in it, taking up 344 GB total. With absolutely 0 effort to avoid duplicate backups and whatnot, I'm not even halfway through the 1 TB from Office 365, let alone needing the extra storage from Groove yet.

    Wait, so 5gb free and camera bonus how much?

    For me, my documents will always be in OneDrive... The integration that it has with Word, Excel and PowerPoint and Windows as a whole is very valuable... So if my documents cross the minimum 5GB, I'll pay for more... Photos and other media files however I might store them local or probably move them to Mega...

    Personally I feel any company can do what MS did so I'm not willing to keep shifting my files around...

    Anyway to the topic. I already use Google drive & Mega from the start of their services. I also had 50GB from Dropbox from my Android phone, but I lost my credentials ah well. New account only has 5GB of space.

    The changes will be next year.

    Get Office 365 for $99/year and get the worlds best productivity software suite, kept up to date, and 1 TB of the OneDrive cloud storage. Amazing functionality and a great deal.

    Or sign up for Dropbox Pro for $99/year for 1 TB of cloud storage. A great service too.

    Some people don't need 1TB and already have paid copies of office. Doing away with 100 Gig and 200 Gig tiers is moronic and cripples consumer choice. They could have easily offered the 50 gig tier alongside these. The camera roll bonus is going to impact more than a few sales of the upcoming 950 and 950 XL.

    Lastly you have the issue of trust, since they pulled the rug underneath their user base on the pretext that people were using 75 TB on a service advertised as UNLIMITED. Some of the content may have been questionable and such content is covered by the Terms of Service.

    If said TOS is breached then those are grounds to lock down the offending accounts. Not grounds to penalise your entire user base.

    Why would you want to pay for service which could just change dramatically?

    "we have know decided to reduce the one drive storage offered to 365 customers to 500 Gig, because people were using almost 1 Tb. Blah blah blah".

    Trust is what cloud storage providers need and without that... What's the point?

    Why do you think there was a huge stink about privacy and user data stored in different parts of the world?


    What they could have done:
    1) They could have easily grandfathered the accounts using 1TB+

    2) locked down the offending accounts if the TOS was breached.

    3) made new accounts going forward have only 5 Gigs (change coming into affect on dd/mm/yyyy).

    4) offered the 50 Gig plans alongside other tiers.

    5) kept the camera roll bonus, are they going to reword all adverts that showcase this bonus?

    As otherwise it is going to be classed as miss selling and false advertising which is a criminal offence for which you will be heavily penalised for.

    6) add 1TB increment add-ons so people have the option of adding more storage.

    7) reduce new 365 accounts to 1TB after a certain date.

    So, as you can see who ever thought and made this decision has gone beyond full retard.
