  1. Effective Onedrive free storage space


    I understand that each Onedrive account has free 5 g storage space.


    For each file stored in Onedrive, when editing is done, Onedrive will create a "File History" for that file.


    Also, if a file is deleted, it will go to the "Recycle bin"


    My question is that would the files in "File History" and files in the "Recycle bin" counted towards the 5 g storage space?


    If they are counted towards the 5 g, then the actual effective storage will be less than 5 g.


    Is it possible then to disable the creation of "File History" so as to maximize the storage space?


    Thanks in advance


    Cent.

  2. onedrive taking up alot of storage windows phone

    Hi,

    To isolate the concern, please answer the following questions:

    • Is your phone up-to-date?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • How long has your phone had this issue?
    • Have you tried logging in to OneDrive via Edge or other browser to check if the data is still available? You can compare the used storage from the one you're seeing on OneDrive app.
    • Have you tried to check your phone storage to check how your phone storage space is being used? Go to
      Settings > Storage sense > Phone > Apps + games >
      look for OneDrive app, take a screenshot and attach it to your reply.

    We're looking forward to your reply.
     
  3. Windows 10 - OneDrive

    Right click on the app and one of the properties has an option to not automatically start it. Uncheck, restart the computer, and it should stop. If you want to go another step further, find the OneDrive app in the start menu, right click on it and uninstall.

    If that is still insufficient, there is a batch uninstaller for OneDrive available online. I can copy the code here if you need it.

    Effective Onedrive free storage space

    Cloud storage (aka Onedrive will suck so need to find something else)

    So, I will have to move away from Onedrive, which is sad because it's frankly the best free cloud storage I know of. But as someone said: "Microsoft realized they accidentaly made a great service." and they'll change it so that starting soon this will happen (the things that affect me anyway):
    • 100 GB and 200 GB paid plans are going away as an option for new users and will be replaced with a 50 GB plan for $1.99 per month in early 2016.
    • 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.
    This is so much crap. I use the free version and yeah $1.99/month I probably could afford, but it still SUCKS. Seriously, I usually don't get the MS hate, but this is a poop-poop move.

    So I need something new.

    Dropbox is out. Too tiny. Google Drive might be an alternative, but I'd rather not, for ... reasons I can't remember right now.

    What I need:
    • something like 15GB storage or so.
    • Automatic photo uploading from my phone (Android)
    • Preferably an actual app for Android (yes I know you can setup ES File Explorer and the like but that's usually pretty cumbersome)
    The simplest solution I'm actually leaning towards is just to give up and get a 100GB plan now (current 100/200GB plans will not be affected, in the future they won't be avaliable to new customers), but that's the easy way out. *Frown Effective Onedrive free storage space :(
