  1. Combining OneDrive's 5Gb for 3 devices into 15Gb


    I was wondering why one is restricted to only 5Gb on OneDrive when I have three devices using Windows 10 and would like to have a combined total of 15Gb. If each machine had a different profile then I could have 5Gb per profile. Why am I punished to only 5Gb when using one profile as this is not much for sharing data among 3 machines. I am currently paying Google 1.99 for 100Gb which I would be willing to pay that also for Onedrive but I think their current pricing is too much.

    :)

  3. Combining OneDrive's 5Gb for 3 devices into 15Gb

    Hi Mo. I'm Greg, an installation specialist and 9 year Windows MVP here to help you.

    You're right that they're not really that competitive with Google Drive, whose new Backup with 15gb free even allows you to choose any of your User folders to back up in real time, while OneDrive has just caught up with only Desktop, Documents and Pictures.
    So I recommend it for better value and features as of now.

    More here:

    Then you can use OneDrive's 5gb for just your most valuable files, or not at all until they get competitive with Google.

    I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and keep me posted. If you'll wait to rate whether my post helped you, I will keep working with you until it's resolved.

    OneDrive

    My OneDrive is full. I have only 5GB space. I went on line and it said that Microsoft OneDrive has 15GB free. Is this right ?
