Microsoft OneDrive storage service is no longer unlimited

Microsoft is making some major changes to its OneDrive software because it found users are storing much more data in the cloud than the software giant is willing to handle. Free storage is being decreased from 15GB to 5GB for all users, and the limitless cloud storage offered to Office 365 users is now on a 1TB cap. Additionally, the 100GB and 200GB paid plans are going away in favor of a new 50GB plan that will cost $1.99 a month.

So why is Microsoft making these changes? It seems because a small number of users were backing up numerous PCs and stored entire movie collections and DVR recordings on OneDrive. In some instances, this exceeded 75TB per use, which Microsoft claims is 14,000 times the average.
Since we started to roll out unlimited cloud storage to Office 365 consumer subscribers, a small number of 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.
Customers that exceed the new quotas will have access to their files for at least 12 more months.
