Microsoft gave a deadline to trim one's online discspace. Anyone know the date? Guidance sought

Lots of thought here. I think folk must not lean on cloud storage too hard. Here's a fellow you may know and his view.

It's an OK thing but the space is not yours to control and is subject to outages, leaks, limits and rule changes out of your control.

Despicable marketing. Give you a snotload of online storage, then, once you fill it up, cut back and charge you for anything over the new minimum.
