    Increase to OneDrive storage plans announced


    OneDrive is free online storage I rely on every day to access all my photos, videos, Office documents, and other files anytime I want on any of my Windows devices. It’s built into Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. I use OneDrive to help protect my files if something happens to any of my devices. For example, on my Windows Phone my camera roll automatically saves any photos I take to OneDrive. And I also use OneDrive to collaborate with others. My fiancée and I have a shared OneNote notebook where we collaborate on wedding stuff.


    Today, the OneDrive Team has announced increases to their OneDrive storage plans. OneDrive will now come with 15GB of free online storage - up from 7GB previously. For OneDrive’s paid plans if you need additional online storage, they are dropping storage prices by over 70%. And finally, all Office 365 subscriptions will come with 1TB of online storage. For all the details on the changes to OneDrive’s storage plans – see this blog post from Omar Shahine on the OneDrive Blog.

    Seems like natural evolution to me. Remember the days when you were only allowed 10MB in your hotmail account? Outlook now lets you store messages up to 1.5GB!

    I do have a thought of why they're doing this. Because Windows 8 and MS are bashed so much I'll keep it to myself.

    They gave me 100Gb just for having a bunch of Bing rewards points.

    We have Office 365 Home and not seen any storage changes as of yet, still shows only the 27GB it always had.

    All of these updates will take effect in the next month. For current subscribers, you are all set, you’ll automatically be moved to the lower prices. > Massive increase to OneDrive storage plans: 15 GB free for everyone, 1 TB for Office 365 subscribers | OneDrive Blog

    It is nice to have all this extra storage but I'm concerned about the speed of uploading and downloading, 24/7 access and security.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I have SO much OneDrive storage that I haven't fully utilized simply because of folder structure. I'd need to move my OneDrive folder on my system to my hard drives and then proceed to copy over 100+ gigs to make a redundant hard copy so it can all totally upload to OneDrive.

    First world living would be much easier if there was the ability to right click or select files and folders from the file system, either Desktop or OneDrive app, and just upload that selected portion. No need to make redundant copies, no directories to relocate, just easier.

    But no.

    That is why Dropbox is such a success.
