Office 365 consumer subscribers soon will be able to buy up to an extra 1TB of storage for a fee. And OneDrive web, mobile, and Windows 10 PC users are getting a new secure-storage feature for no additional charge. Microsoft is bringing a new storage plan and security options to the consumer version of its OneDrive cloud storage service. On June 25, Microsoft announced new paid OneDrive Personal plans for OneDrive consumer customers and Office 365 consumer subscribers; and its OneDrive Personal Vault feature. Microsoft is increasing the storage baseline for OneDrive Personal users who currently pay $1.99 a month for 50 GB of storage. Now, these users will get 100 GB of cloud storage for the same $1.99 a month fee. The extra storage will be added "soon" to those users accounts without them needing to take any action, officials said. Microsoft also finally is enabling Office 365 consumer subscribers to buy more OneDrive storage. As part of their current Office 365 Home or Personal subscriptions, users already get 1TB of OneDrive storage per user for no additional cost. These users are going to be able to buy more storage in 200 GB increments for $1.99 per month, up to 1TB of additional storage for $9.99 per month. The new total maximum of storage that Microsoft is making available is 2TB; there are currently no plans to offer more, said Seth Patton, General Manager of Microsoft 365. These new additional storage options will be made available worldwide "in the coming months," Patton said. For those who have multiple users with 1TB each under their Office 365 Home plan, only the primary account holder is eligible for the extra storage purchase. For more visit OUR FORUM.
