OneDrive, reduced from 10TB to 1TB storage space for subscribers to Office 365

Microsoft has decided to reduce by as much 9 TB space available to customers of Office 365. A dispute, the reduction of the storage space, began in 2015 and that still seems to have found a permanent solution.

It was 2015 when Microsoft announced Office 365 subscribers who would no longer have permitted to take advantage of unlimited storage space OneDrive. Subsequently, it was decided that the users ” free ” could only use 5 GB of free storage compared to the previous 15 GB.

The Neverending Story, continued with a turn around the Redmond company that offered 30 GB of space but only to those who did request and only for a limited number of users. And today we continue to change, at least for subscribers to Office 365. You will have to do without well 9 TB for their own file space.

Microsoft has indeed begun to change the available storage space, greatly reducing the 10 TB of storage space that was initially given to its subscribers. And so the reports on the operation ” cut ” coming network your users who find themselves now with 1TB of available space.

Everything clearly announced by Microsoft with an e-mail to subscribers but the change is very important and all those who have occupied more than 1 TB of space occupied had until March 1 to move. Nothing definitive since the Redmond company still decided to extend for a further three months the time available to eliminate the excess data to subscribers.

In this case the user subscribed to Office 365 will display an ” over quota message mode ” in which he will be asked to remove the excess data to avoid losing the data. Besides, you cannot add new files or documents, if you will not release the excess space and the account will be temporarily blocked for six months if it is not done cleaning.

We remember how Onedrive, formerly known as Microsoft SkyDrive, and before that as Windows Live SkyDrive and Windows Live Folders, is a cloud storage and backup service offered by Microsoft, accessible via browser and app desktop and smartphones. Its usefulness is disarming because of its ease of use because to access them. You need a Microsoft account.
