Microsoft Poised to Release New OneDrive Storage Plans

Posted on August 14, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Office 365, OneDrive with 26 Comments

Back in June, Microsoft revealed that it would finally offer OneDrive storage tiers above 1 TB, albeit only to paying Office 365 customers. Based on a recent leak, those new tiers should become available soon.

As is so often the case, the OneDrive storage tiers were leaked by Walking Cat, who, along with their followers, revealed the currently inactive Microsoft Store listings for 200 GB, 400 GB, 600 GB, 800 GB, and 1 TB annual plans.

Those with Office 365 Home and Personal accounts each get 1 TB of OneDrive storage. These plans are in addition to that, so the new upper limit is now 2 TB per account. Back when Microsoft announced this change, it said that the new tiers would become available “in the coming months.”

This is a nice step in the right direction. But Google, by comparison, offers Google One storage tiers well beyond 2 TB.
