TFians! Today I’m going to share a trick to get 5 TB of cloud storage from Microsoft. Many of us know that OneDrive is the cloud storage of Microsoft. Usually, it gives us only 5 GB storage with regular Microsoft account. But with education package, Microsoft provides 5 TB of online storage with Office 365 access totally for free. To get access to this package you need a varsity email. It’s actually given to the students/teachers. So, a better option to get this package by education email.
But If you don’t have education email then this post is for you. Yes! Now it’s your turn to get 5 TB storage from OneDrive. I’m sharing step by step procedure.
Step 1: Go to any link those are given below,
There you’ll get an email address [All of them are temp mail]. Copy the email address to paste it on the next step.
Step 2: Go to the https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/products/office. Past the email address on Get started with Office 365 for free mail submission box and hit on GET STARTED button. Then the page link will be redirected to another page. There, you’ll need to select I’m a Student button.
Then another page will be opened and there you’ll find a form. Fill up the form with a verification number which you’ll get from the mail address picking website (where you went to get the email address in Step 1)
Step 3: After submitting the filled up form, you’ll be redirected to the portal. Yes! That’s all about it. You get 5 TB OneDrive storage successfully!
You’ll also get access to many more things from Microsoft. Especially, Office 365. If you don’t know what is Office 365 then kindly search about it on any search engine. You’ll be happy! Here’re more things waiting… Keep on your eyes on the below list.
