Microsoft Hits the Brakes on OneDrive


Microsoft on Tuesday said it would stop offering unlimited OneDrive storage for Office 365 customers and would cut the amount of free storage it offers. Some users abused the unlimited feature, exceeding 75 TB per user, or 14,000 times the average, the company said. Office 365 Home, Personal and University subscribers no longer will get unlimited storage; instead, they’ll get 1 TB of OneDrive storage for free. Free OneDrive storage will be slashed from 15 GB to 5 GB for all current and new users beginning early next year.
