Technology giant Microsoft has today announced that it will no longer offer unlimited OneDrive storage and is going to start scaling down all subscription plans.
According to the company, some users backed up numerous PCs and stored entire movie collections and DVR recordings. In some instances, this exceeded 75 TB per user or 14,000 times the average.
We’re no longer planning to offer unlimited storage to Office 365 Home, Personal, or University subscribers will no longer be able to store unlimited files on their OneDrive accounts, and will now have to make do with 1TB of space.
The Free OneDrive plans have also been reduced from 15GB to 5GB for new and existing users and is discontinuing the 15 GB camera roll storage bonus.
The changes will be implemented in early 2016. However, those who have files that go over the new limits will still be able to access them for 12 months.
It should be noted that Amazon launched unlimited storage for $60 a year in March.
