Microsoft allows current OneDrive users to keep 15GB free storage, if they claim it

In a note released to OneDrive users this week, Microsoft has said that current customers on the free tier of the company’s OneDrive cloud storage service will be allowed to keep their 15GB of free cloud storage as well as 15GB of free Camera Roll “bonus” storage.

Microsoft’s recent note to OneDrive users underscores an evident effort by the company to appease the customers who were irked by its November announcement that the free OneDrive storage limit would be downgraded from 15GB to just 5GB.

However, Microsoft has now said in its note to current OneDrive customers on free tier that they can keep their 15GB free cloud storage.

But, existing OneDrive users who want to keep their 15GB of free storage will have to claim it. For that, they will have to go to the dedicated webpage and click the ‘Keep your free storage’ option. The OneDrive accounts of customers who claim the 15GB free storage will not be affected when Microsoft downgrades the free OneDrive storage limit to 5GB and discontinues the extra 15GB camera roll bonus.

Revealing that the offer is available to current free-tier users of OneDrive service until January 31, 2016, Microsoft told OneDrive users in the note: "You're an important part of what we do, and we want to make sure you know that. That's why we're making it possible for you to keep your base storage quota and camera roll bonus, even after the changes roll out."
