One Drive Storage Allocation
It has been reported in various places that Microsoft is reducing the OneDrive storage allocation from 15GB to 5GB.
This is (apparently) not entirely true.
I received the following e-mail from Microsoft today:
" Important changes to OneDrive
As you know, the amount of storage that comes with most OneDrive accounts is changing from 15 GB to 5 GB. You previously confirmed your desire to keep your 15 GB of free storage (and the 15 GB camera roll bonus if you have it).* As a result, your account will not be affected by these changes.
We want to apologize for any inconvenience these changes may have caused you. We listened to our users’ feedback, and we are committed to making OneDrive the best option for people who want to be productive and do more.
Thank you for using OneDrive.

These updates apply to your personal OneDrive account only. If you have a OneDrive account through your work or school, it will not be affected.

The reduction will occur for those that didn't explicitly chose to confirm the willingness to be grandfathered on the amount they had, through the opt-in. There will also be a one year free Office Personal subscription for anyone who is using more than 5 GB.Rui
