Microsoft changed its OneDrive plans recently, reducing its free 15GB cloud storage offer to 5GB, prompting more than 70,000 users to express their displeasure on the OneDrive feedback website.




Now, Microsoft is reverting its decision. Curiously, you'll have to opt-in here in order to get the extra space back. Note you still get the 15GB camera roll bonus for a total of 30GB.


"We've heard clearly from our Windows and OneDrive fans about the frustration and disappointment we have caused," a Microsoft spokesperson said. "We realize the announcement came across as blaming customers for using our product. For this, we are truly sorry and would like to apologize to the community."


If you're a 365 subscriber interested in unlimited storage, that plan is still axed, although you can keep it for at least one year. Should you find yourself still unhappy, refunds will be given.
