    Agreed. I have about 70gb's of data and Office 2016 pro and removing the 100 and 200gb plans just seems stupid. 50gb and office 365 subscription as the only option seems insane. Arstechnica's article says it best when they say that if Onedrive was crucial to how Windows 10 is marketed they would have thought Microsoft was trying to kill it.

    I am not concerned about the changes, i use 15gb of space and have a 365 account so lots left. I can see why folks are irritated through, as the removal of the camera bonus and the two tiers is not ideal.

    I think we also need to be aware through that the reason for OneDrive means it may not offer as much as goggle for instance who want it to gain info to sell adds. OneDrive is a service, bit offers office with a 365 subscription, it is good value still especially when compared to dropbox.

    I don't understand the outrage over this OneDrive thing, if you use Microsoft products long enough, you get used to them taking away something from their customers. They always change stuff around and screw people over. Its just how it works with them. You get used to it....

    Despite all of the privacy concerns some have with Google you don't hear about them having security breaches
    Yeah, for the same reason you don't have small time crooks stealing from the mob.

    I'm not leaving Windows Mobile (yet), I'm leaving OneDrive.

    I'll get myself a NAS with RAID and build my own cloud then use Amazon Cloud Drive to backup everything.

    [WARN]Let's keep the conversation on OneDrive, not each other, parenting skills and other asides.

    Windows Central is the name on the tin, not Parenting Magazine.

    I've seen many people here and on Reddit who say that they're leaving Windows Mobile and cancelling their Lumia 950/XL preorder over it. This doesn't seem very logical. Backing up photos can be done through several applications -- Flickr, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc. -- on Windows Mobile, iOS and Android. I'm upset with Microsoft for changing their policy too, however I don't think it warrants giving up on Windows Mobile.
    Ok, when I first saw the news of Onedrive space downgrade, I was like..... Oh cool
    What I am trying to say that I don't see the reason of people being furious. Its a phone we are using and we don't normally sit down and watch 5 movies on our phone daily. I believe the access to onedrive on our phone is to have a continuous back up of our phone and easy access to our personal files from our computer.

    We hardly trust could networks to begin with, so we hardly even upload things that are really personal. So I don't see how 1TB will be an issue, that's a lot of space. Hardly see a 10TB external online for sale on ebay nor amazon, so why expect Win10 to offer UNLIMITED for free since its been abused?

    Don't think its even a reason for people to even leave windows cause wherever they go, cloud network is always an issue.

    They don't steal from google cause it can be bought. If you see a personal picture that you like, google offer you a price to purchase the file. So that's why you haven't seen any report of stealing cause its actually been sold for a price.

    Google doesn't sell your personal photos you upload onto Google Photos. The funny thing I find about all this data mining that Google does, along with everyone else, is that it is to sell for targeted advertising purposes. I always wonder why any advertiser would waste their money paying for this information based on the ads I see, which I am not the least interested in. I use ad blockers when on PCs, and I would use them in a minute if available on Windows phone. Ads are just ruining the experience of phone browsing for me, to the point I avoid many sites that are laden with them. This targeted advertising is really driving people away, not enticing them to buy anything.

    Because onedrive is the only service that fully supports windows phone.

    Google drive isnt available on WP, and there is no way to fully integrate those services into the OS without a "set default app" function.

    Im not leaving the WP ecosystem because i have 1 tb with office 365, but i can see why onedrive free users would be mad.

    Despite the disadvantage of Microsoft windows such as the lazy updates of apps., less apps than android and iOS, and the poor camera photos, Microsoft try to repel and kicks out more users of these operating system specially it's new policy of OneDrive limitation of storages!!
    Why Microsoft?!
