Storage Purchase Options
I recently had my storage reduced from 10TB to 1TB. I am totally unhappy that there is no options to purchase another 1TB, 2TB, 5TB or 10TB for a small fee. I'm a Office 365 subscriber who needs large space as my demands grows. Please add these additional storage Purchase Options to give people flexibility.

Good grief... and least add the option and charge what you need to make the economics work! I need it... If i need it and their are no other options I will pay it.
Completely agree. It became almost useless for me. I understand Microsoft's challenge, going from ok wee can offer unlimited space because there is tremendous duplication we can deDuplicate out, then 4k and higher video files became commonplace and the realization horned that storage will balloon beyond profitability. There needs to be a middle ground though. The whole vision of one drive is to use files anywhere on any of our many devices and share/ collaborate anytime . This becomes impossible for those of us micromanaging our storage and moving files in and out to stay under 1tb. Which of my baby pictures do I move out? Which home videos? Do I move my 30 years of purchased lossless music library to another service? Some of the comments Microsoft made about discontinuing unlimited referred to a few people with 10s of tb of usage, and they said it in a derogatory way as if those people were abusive or pirates out whatever. And they comment that most user shave around 5GB of data. The reality is, users with low data probably signed up and never set up a workflow to actually use one drive, they stored a few files. It doesn't work as intended unless you use it for your my documents, my music, muy videos, my pictures and all really on all devices. So realistic storage is somewhere in the middle, maybe it's not 70 tb, but it's sure more than 1tb. Average human beings generate more than this on a regular basis with phones, cameras and other devices, but they also lose those files during device failures, data migrations from devices and other such challenges and they just keep going forward. One drive looks to solve that issue, by doesn't cater to the people who already have that vision and have been managing thier data we'll from the beginning. You see anyone using cloud storage will accrue more data than said average because they potentially stop losing data. 1Tb storage limit is a scheduled obsoletion of the service for any active user, and cost me persona data loss, as did the discontinuation of storage on other such unlimited cloud services.
