    So how many of you use OneDrive? You know the GoogleDrive clone from Microsoft. Well if you do prepare to be disappointed. They recently changed their free storage from 15gb down to 5gb. You heard me right 15 to 5. There is in fact now a petition to change it back. Where you guys disappointed when you heard the news? Do you want it go back to normal? Let me know down below!

    TBH, I don't even touch my OneDrive. I've been using GDrive for enough time that I already have everything set up with it. I doubt I'll use OneDrive unless I need more cloud storage, and with this change I find it highly unlikely I'll even bother in the future :P

    I thought it was always 5GB? It's been 5GB as long as I have used it- and I have used it since September.

    I am not to sure as I my self have never really fully tested it out I have always been a Gdrive fan. However from the rage of the fans I can certainly say there was a option for 15gb

    Well, I prefer windows over osx for one reason only. How easy it is to install the plethora of applications and games.

    Never used it. And with a monthly limit of 100GB (up- and download combined), the difference would be negligible to begin with.

    I forgot
    This. I can't say I've ever really seen anyone actually use it, beyond being forced to for whatever reason.

    Meh, call me old fashioned, but I'll stick to external harddrives/USB drives.

    Edit:
    Only cloud service I use is the 360's cloud for save games ;')

    Nah, not really.
    They can corrupt and make data irretrievable.

    Only upside is, you always got your data with you and don't need an active Internet connection.
    Plus, it's easier when you're over metered connections, it takes no bandwith.
    And nobody (providing you don't leave it out in the open or leave it in computers etc) can touch your shit.
    Not to mention that cloud services can charge you for storage out of the blue, even to get your data back (tho it's unlikely they would but, worst case scenario..)

    Yeh, I'll just stick with offline backups.
    Atleast I'm in control of everything and if something goes wrong, It's me own to blame.

    I use copy, mostly because of referrals. 15 GB free + 5 GB per referral (including being referred). So 20 GB to start off with.
