A reminder! In case you didn’t get around to it during the holidays and all, because, you know, holidays. This is your last week to make sure that you keep the free storage you have on your hotmail and/or outlook email accounts. Microsoft is reducing the amount of free storage it’s allotting to its free accounts at the end of the month, from 15GB down to 5GB, and it’s also eliminating the free 15GB camera roll bonus many users signed up for some time ago.
But for users who want to keep that storage, they are offering a “loyalty link” so your current level of storage can be grandfathered in when the new basic level free tiers are enacted next Monday.
“While we are not changing our (new) plans,” the announcement continues, it is taking another crack at clarifying the changes and making one new offer that will grandfather in some of the old limits for existing OneDrive users.
Here are the details:
- For OneDrive customers who currently have a 15 GB free storage allotment and a 15 GB camera roll bonus, Microsoft is offering to preserve those features, but only for those who opt in using this link, which is valid until January 31, 2016.
- All OneDrive customers with free accounts who do not opt in to the loyalty offer will see their free storage cut to 5 GB and the camera roll bonus will disappear.
So, for those of you who have hotmail or outlook email accounts, and want to keep the current level of free storage you’re enjoying, click this link! OneDrive Bonus Loyalty Link Before Sunday! Otherwise, it’ll be back down to a measly old 5GB of storage.
