Microsoft plans to reduce the amount of storage available through OneDrive in an effort to stem abuse. Significantly, free OneDrive storage is being curtailed from 15GB to just 5GB for all users, including the 15GB camera roll storage bonus. Microsoft no longer plans to offer unlimited storage to Office 365 Home, Personal, or University subscribers, and will instead limit these accounts to 1TB. Microsoft is also dumping the 100GB and 200GB paid plans in favor of a 50GB plan for $1.99 per month. (Customers who already pay for the 100GB and 200GB plans will be able to keep them.) Microsoft said subscribers who are using more than 1TB of storage will be able to keep what they have for 12 months. People who are using more than the 5GB free offering will also have access to their files for 12 months. The bulk of these changes go into effect in early 2016. Microsoft said it will make sure everyone is aware of the changes before they occur.
