    I have a OneDrive account. I rarely use it, but it’s there if I need it together with ~6MB of my files stored in it… or is it?

    It turns out that Microsoft has frozen my account for inactivity. Talk about being made to feel like a criminal.

    Worse, now that it has alerted me via email to the situation, it’s apparently going to take up to 24 hours to ‘unfreeze’ it. What?

    And what’s with the You can unfreeze your account for 30 days message and Temporarily unfreeze button? Further punishment?

    Whoever said computers were fast was obviously misinformed.

    Or maybe it’s just Microsoft computers? Perhaps my OneDrive is part of the same network that dropped Outlook and Teams worldwide? *Again.*

      Azure/the cloud/etc…

      It is very much a “hurry up and wait”.

      I think Microsoft is in the “Star Girl” universe and most of the rest of us are in “The Flash” universe.

      Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you recognize a mistake as soon as you make it again.

      Just to resolve this, 24 hours later Microsoft deigned to unfreeze my account… and, predictably, sent me a sales pitch exhorting me to purchase stuff.

      As per usual, I ignored it.

      (Hmm… the option to ‘Resolve’ this topic has disappeared? What’s going on?)

      What do you expect from the last 30 years leader in bloatware, vaporware, three e’s, netscape, anti linux crusade, android patents on everything, etc.  They are pure evil.

      In the universe where the owners of the technology in question have studied indifference to their customers’ needs.

        Create a separate topic describing the problem. Ask if anyone else has the same problem.
