Microsoft CVP Chris Capossela Explained in a statement:-
The economic decision was easy. We made the economic decision, incorrectly, a year earlier, and then when we saw the usage just take off and you have 400 million or whatever it is, and you’re upgrading a gazillion Windows 10 machines, and they’re all using OneDrive, which is great, but you’ve got to use it in a way that’s economically sustainable. Those were some of the things that went into it.”
For the ‘Communication disaster’,Microsoft has decided to pull down the free storage offered to its one drive users.
