OneDrive users on Tuesday took to an online petition website and to Microsoft's own UserVoice feature request service to demand that the company rethink its decision to reduce free storage allotments by 83%.
On the Change.org petition site, an open letter to the OneDrive team asked for a U-turn. "The newest changes to the storage plans have bought much concern to the OneDrive and Windows community," the petition said. "Discontinuing the unlimited storage option on grounds of abuse is fair enough, but why go to the extent of punishing all your customers?"
As of early Wednesday, the petition had collected nearly 2,000 virtual signatures.
The petition argued for a restoration of the eliminated 100GB and 200GB plans, which Microsoft said would be eliminated in favor of a new 50GB deal, and urged that the cap for Office 365 subscribers be 2TB, double Microsoft's new limit.
