Scrooge McDuck is now in charge of Microsoft's consumer cloud division.
That's not literally true, of course, but a surprise announcement tonight from the division responsible for the consumer OneDrive service could easily have been written by Mr. McDuck. The new rules roll back a signature feature of the OneDrive service and renege on an extravagant promise that the company made just over a year ago.

I'm not really affected by the fact that there won't be unlimited storage, since 1TB is more than enough to work with Office documents, but this however...
It seems like I'll have to build my own private cloud to store my things and keep it accessible 24/7. Now I only have 7GB with Dropbox and 15GB with Google Drive.
Free OneDrive storage will decrease from 15 GB to 5 GB for all users, current and new. The 15 GB camera roll storage bonus will also be discontinued. These changes will start rolling out in early 2016.
