Microsoft offers up to 30 GB of free OneDrive cloud storage

Microsoft OneDrive camera roll bonus gives 15 GB of additional free cloud storage for life
Microsoft OneDrive camera roll bonus
People who use the OneDrive camera roll feature on any platform receive an additional 15 GB of free cloud storage for life, but this offer ends at the end of the month.

Last Friday evening, Microsoft decided to double the amount of free cloud storage offered with OneDrive. This does not appear like a planned move, since the official blog post announcing it reads "we’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhones released today and we wanted to get you more storage right away."

Fortunately, this offer also applies to users who run Android and Windows (both Windows Phone and  any of the other releases). Old accounts with automatic upload for camera roll enabled get their extra space automatically, but new accounts can get the extra space as well - once the feature is enabled, of course. At last, existing accounts with various bonuses already applied will get the full 15 GB of additional storage as well - for example, old accounts that already got the 10 GB loyalty bonus now offer 40 GB of free space in the cloud.

This is a limited time offer that will be discontinued at the end of the month, but the amount of cloud storage offered remains available for life.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
