    Click to keep 25GB extra of free OneDrive storage

    I thought this deserved a thread of its own, as it's only available for about six weeks:

    And it wants you to sign in blood. But you can have it back!
    Access your email addresses
    OneDrive Preview will be able to see the email addresses in your profile.
    Add or remove bonus storage
    OneDrive Preview will be able to add bonus storage to your account. It will also be able to remove this storage (but no other storage), at any point in time.

    Yes, it may only be a temporary reprieve... but perhaps better than nothing?

    I posted this the other day to a prior post of mine about the free accounts being cut back to 5GB. Still not sure if I want to live with the recent whims of MS about this and other things.

    But how long does it last for,I wouldn't mind a shot a the free go of office. If I accept it and it is only temporary and the storage drops to 5GB anyway the free office offer will be gone. Maybe give the 1 month free offer a shot and see if I like it. I dont use onedrive but filled it up from Dropbox to put me in the running for the free 1 year offer. Or have I got things all wrong.

    • If you are using more than 5 GB of free storage, you will continue to have access to all files for at least 12 months after these changes go into effect in early 2016. In addition, you can redeem a free one-year Office 365 Personal subscription (credit card required), which includes 1 TB of OneDrive storage.
    • I was going by this and since I have never tried Office I thought this would be a good way to try it out, but if I Click to keep 25GB extra of free OneDrive storage I would say that puts me out of the running for that deal.
