On Sunday afternoon, I wrote an article about the free Windows 10 Upgrade and its included OneDrive, which is the personal edition.
I scheduled that email to be sent out on Tuesday morning, but on the previous Monday evening, Microsoft announced that it would reduce its 15GB capacity down to 5GB due to abuse of its generous offer.
But for subscribers to Office 365, you get OneDrive for Business, which is another product completely and will restore its 1TB capacity (more than anyone really needs!) and no longer offer unlimited storage.
I support this move 100% for the reason that the title of the article reads:
“OneDrive storage plans change in pursuit of productivity and collaboration”
..and not as an archiving solution for someone’s pirated movie library.
It’s now been 3 months since Windows 10 was released and I am pleased with the results.
I’ve now upgraded my Dell laptop from Win 8.1 Pro to Win 10, as well as the Win 7 Pro virtual machine that I had running on my MacBook Pro Retina.
There is no better time than now to subscribe to my unlimited Annual Remote HelpDesk so that I can help you before Microsoft’s free upgrade to Windows 10 expires in 9 months.
Also, please know that OneDrive Personal is included within Windows 10 and includes 15 GB’s of online storage that is free and astoundingly secure.
Please sign up by contacting me directly.
NOTE: The Windows 10 Update is only for consumers. If you are a business that uses proprietary line-of-business (LOB) software with specific operating requirements, then you should purchase Windows 10 Pro or use an earlier version of Windows.
What if you leave your laptop on the train?
Protect your data, even if your data happens to be cached (stored) files that are ultimately secure within the cloud, you need to encrypt your local drives, whether on your Mac or Windows PC.
For Mac, use FileVault; for Windows, use BitLocker.
