    Read the blog and tell me if anyone is happy with this decision. When you had 30B, now you only have 5GB

    I've started using OneDrive along with my first Windows phone in 2014, at first I was pretty happy about 15Gb + Camera 15Gb Cloud FREE storage offer, also turned on auto upload of Pictures and Videos on Phone settings. 30Gb of free cloud storage was awesome, but I always suspected that this day will come eventually. About a few months ago I decided to backup all my OneDrive stuff to portable hard drive, setting imaginary limit for me in Cloud to maximum of 5GB. Turns out it was a smart decision, to have on cloud no more than 5GB of data. From 28Gb to 2.7 keeping only stuff I need on the move, or for sharing with others. I'm a bit disappointed because of this news, but as all things good it has to end someday. I guess I'll have to rely on OneDrive and Yandex.disk, which offers 10Gb and offline viewing on my Lumia.

    And with what app will you use it on WP/W10M? OneDrive is/was the best as it is integrated into the MS products... This change won't be a showstopper for me as I will still have my 1TB, but it can be painful for a lot. And it's a regression as all the providers give more and more cloud storage, not less...

    I'm reading and article on one of our national newspaper, Microsoft reduces due to user's abuses.
    It's always the same story.

    This is not about a few users abusing the system, they could easily just ban those accounts. Also TechRadar just wrote its creepy that Microsoft have people snooping through their drives!

    This is about Greed. To reduce a Lumia users phone storage from 30GB (inc Camera Roll) down to 5GB with no free photos is a disgrace. I also think in the UK those who purchased 365 subs with unlimited storage may seek legal action as we are protected as consumers over here from this bull.

    This is the Worst PR disaster since Xbox One launch from which Microsoft never recovered. I do think Microsoft will do a U-turn on this before 2016, but if not I'm getting a Nexus 6P.

    I no longer have loyalty to Microsoft as they don't care about existing Lumia users.

    One of the best features of OneDrive was the ability to store music on it and then stream directly from it using my Windows phone or my Surface without having to have the actual files clogging up the memory on the devices. At the moment I'm using a Lumia 1020, but my contract is up in the next few days. I was looking at upgrading to the 950 when it comes out, but I'm now seriously thinking about being one of the sheep and changing to an Iphone or even downgrading to an Android phone (yes, I consider it a downgrade. I've had Android phones in the past and find them complicated and unstable).
    At the moment I have 130gb of OneDrive storage - 15gb free, 15gb camera roll and 100gb enthusiast bonus. I'm only using 16gb of this.
    If this reduction in size is purely down to a few people abusing the system, then wouldn't it be just as easy to reduce the size to 50gb or so? This must just be another way of making more money for an ailing company?
    I've just checked out the cost of extra storage.
    Itunes charge 0.79p per month for 50gb.
    OneDrive is 1.99 per month for 100gb.
    Google Drive 15gb free. $1.99 per month for extra 100gb

    This makes an Iphone very tempting unless Microsoft reduces the cost of additional storage next year.

    I don't understand why people are panicking when this was a free service? Its $1.99 a month for 100GBs of additional storage. In the grand scheme of things, that isn't a lot of money.

    If you value your cloud music collection, I would wonder why you don't already have an XBOX Music subscription... Which when activated gives you an additional 100GB's of storage.

    If you're a college student, or use office 365 in any sort of capacity you'll still get 1TB of space to use.

    The problem is for those who depended on the free storage which could have been a total of 30GB now going down to 5GB. Onedrive was ahead of other services in terms of storage offered and it made sense to backup your photos and videos to ondedrive.

    But now with 5GB only for free, most new customers will look for other services. If an average photo is 2.5-5MB in size, by the time you reach 1000 photos you'll seriously be wondering where to store your photos. And for videos captured using your phone, it's another matter altogether

    2USD a month is a lot especially considering that the lumia you bought was for 120USD and you already pay for cellular data.

    Storing on pc or flash drives looks cheaper than storing on the cloud.

    Lol think about what you just wrote...

    $1.99 a month NOW. But what will it be in 2017? How much space will the plan have in 2018? Look at Netflix constantly rising. Trust is the problem here. Microsoft didn't say when we signed up that the 15GB free would be pulled at a moments notice. Europe has strong rules on misleading consumers. Imagine if Facebook started charging?

    I estimated based on current usage that I would have to pay around 2017, after I had filled my cloud storage and was cool with that because it seemed fair value. But this move is untrustworthy. Microsoft should never offered 15GB in the first place if they couldn't afford it. They've set the "price" as it were and now nobody sees value in 5GB. The camera roll backup was to compete with Google, now it seems they can't compete so why stick around?...

    Agree 100%. They made huge U-Turns after they messed up the Xbox One launch.

    Try tweeting @SatyaNadella @OneDrive @Lumia @Windows @Panos_Panay @Surface ...all of these are the big players with the whole experience centered around OneDrive's cloud first vision so they are all impacted.

    Well it should be much cheaper.

    Cloud is more flexible, reachable and safe; it works automatically that's why people love it. Just sayng!

    I have had enough of these companies playing games with my data and telling me what I can and cant do. 25 years ago Mercury 121 (in the UK) offered unlimited calls evenings and weekends - my uncle said it wouldnt last, I said it would, he was right. Over the last 25 years many others have inticed people with 'unlimited' and not one of them have stuck to it. MS is yet another.

    Makes me angry and sad that I believed them, I trusted them, I placed faith in them as they seemed to be fighting back and pushing against Apple and Google and the governments. Iife is too short to mess around uploading down loading, looking for alternatives, uploading grrrrrrrr

    Im buying a Synology NAS and creating my OWN cloud...it will be super secure, super fast, super reliable and never tell me how much I storage I can use. It also wont trawl the data and will be encrypted. Open source is the way, maybe OwnCloud.

    Goodbye Onedrive RIP

    I really don't care about the uber large offerings of more than a terabyte, but the real kicker is cutting back on the Free and Camera Roll Storage Offering. That is completely ridiculous. I like this user voice option too: Keep Free Storage at 15GB ? Feature Suggestions for Microsoft OneDrive

    Also, send feedback from within your OneDrive app itself.

    For a company trying to build product loyalty this is a really big mistake all they have done is show me that I can't trust them. And if me a Windows phone, Windows Tablet and Windows PC user can no longer trust them , Why would someone new trust them?

    I moved many people over because of how much better it was. Now I'm going to have to answer for that. And seriously they are airing ads about Surface being for artists. Who uses the most cloud storage of any people out there? ARTISTS! Designers! Musicians! The very people who are being targeted. "With the surface you can put a few raw files on your 5 gig cloud" Nice.

    I use FLAC files for Music coupled with Jriver on PC. Music alone is 500GB - 1TB is nothing in my eyes and I have already gone past that limit using only images, music and files. Add another TB for films.

    Wonder how many people actually read the T & C's. I have plenty of examples of systems changing for the worse. Bought a Buffalo NAS a couple of years ago which had lots of great features but through various updates and service changes it has pretty much become a paper weight and for the money spent I could buy a substantial package for a lot of years from OneDrive. Personally I like OneDrive it does work unfortunately there are some Muppets who will abuse anything that is free 75TB is a lot of hard disk space for a cloud server I've just spent $30k on 2 x 2TB special media servers (hardware and software) so someone has to pay as it ain't cheap

    There's already talks about MS doing something similar with Windows 10. Giving it away for free and then once it has a large user base start making changes. See it's changes like that that create paranoia in people about a company. It's a trust issue.
