As if all of a sudden going back on promises of unlimited cloud storage and also downgrading free OneDrive plans wasn’t enough to alienate users who can always choose Google Drive or Dropbox, Microsoft just bungled things further by inexplicably limiting people’s accounts to 1TB digital hoarding space.

Don’t get us wrong, this is what’s supposed to happen, like it or not, towards the end of the year. But that’s the problem. Redmond vowed it’d at least try to make the transition as painless as possible, notifying Office 365 consumer subscribers who are over the terabyte mark of the unavoidable ceiling, and allowing them to retain excess data for “at least 12 months.”

Last we checked, only three months or so had passed since MS made the disheartening announcement, so the singular logical explanation for the premature restraint is some sort of technical error. That’s exactly what we’re hearing officially too, and the struggling manufacturers of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL phones are “working hard to revert those users back to their original plan as soon as possible.”

Once again, Microsoft took the time to stress “all Office 365 users with over 1TB of storage will be able to keep that storage limit for at least one year as previously announced.” Unfortunately, we don’t know when might the glitch be fixed specifically, and when will OneDrive users be able to edit documents currently set as read-only. What a mess!
