Microsoft turns downgrades OneDrive storage capacity partly back




Microsoft turns the limitations of its cloud storage OneDrive accounts back partially. The company provides users include the ability to prevent the downgrade of 15 to 5GB on free accounts if they request a special web page.

Microsoft’s OneDrive UserVoice page after the announcement of the downgrade in November, the request for the reversal of this decision the most popular item on the site proved so far. More than 72,000 users agreed with the message, titled ‘I suggest you give us back our store. ” Microsoft decided last month from the beginning of 2016 to amend the unlimited OneDrive storage of Office 365 users to 1TB, the free OneDrive accounts would go from 15GB to 5GB, the free 15GB bonus for using Camera Roll disappeared and more paid Subscriptions disappeared.

Microsoft gave the motivation for the decision in November that the company makes available cloud storage with the aim to facilitate the use of cloud applications like Office 365 and not simply to provide backup storage in the cloud.

Douglas Pearce, Group Program Manager at Microsoft, has responded to the request. He apologizes on behalf of the Redmondse company and says that every Office 365 user who is not happy with the decision to go from unlimited storage to 1TB, can get his money back. Office 365 users who use to store more than 1TB, can continue to exploit this space until the end of 2016, and they still go to 1TB.

Users with free accounts that go from 15 to 5GB, up to January 31 2016 in a specially constructed page indicate that they do not find desirable downgrade. Thus they also retain the 15GB extra they received as they have enabled the automatic uploading of photos and videos. Even users who do not use more than 5GB storage may indicate that they prefer to have 15GB storage. The Camera Roll bonus is no longer applicable and can only be maintained if users already have. Users who do not attend on time Microsoft’s page or create an account after January 31 are still up to 5GB of cloud storage.
