OneDrive storage alert and subscription management in Settings
Earlier, Microsoft added the ability to manage payments methods in Settings > Accounts for the Microsoft 365 subscription. Now, the same is possible for OneDrive Standalone 100GB subscription.
This will allow you to view your recurring billing, payment method, and OneDrive storage usage within Windows 11. Additionally, if you are close to or above your OneDrive storage limit, you will see it on the same Settings page. The company is rolling out this change gradually, so it will be initially available to a small group of Insiders.
