how are you folks managing after 1 year? if a person decides not to continue or you want to replace a member?
The subscription price of 620 per person is nominal for family subscription but I see its a big issue as one might not have the group in long term.
Typically all groups required upfront payment for the complete tenure (5 years in my case). If you want to leave the group then your only option is for you to find a replacement and get the money from the new user.

My existing 1 TB onedrive license expired few weeks ago. (bought this from TE)
I wish to renew the same and also buy a new license for a friend.

If anyone planning to purchase kindly let me know total pricing for 2 license.
Also how i can renew the old working license.. (it has lot of data)

Can any experienced person confirm, If in case I buy another new licensee, can i use the same to renew my existing licence ?

Little Urgent as I cannot upload new data to onedrive.
Payment can be done via SBI IMPS transfer.


TY.


1 year ago purchase topics from TechEnclave.

Bought 1 licencse from @gigap501.
Payment done.

I was able to renew my last year Office 365 purchase for 6 users (bought by another TE member @gourav ) with this new purchase from gigap501.

Thanks :)
Does it mean it is possible to just buy one 6 user pack for yourself and keep renewing it just before it is about to expire for next 6 years?

NVm..I forgot someone said it is not possible.

I think it will just work for the firsr year. For second year (and each subsequent ones) you are gonna redeem a different code or avail the yearly subscription from Microsoft. In short, 6 user pack is good for only one year, either one user uses or two or 6, it doesnt matter, it will be expired after 365 days regardless of the number of users.

To answer your question @solo_wing , no - a single pack cannot be used for 6 years.

The subscription is for 1 year only. I could not find any place which sells multi-year licenses so far.
MRP is 5400, but Croma sells for 4500 (lowest I could find) - physical delivery of serial card within a couple of hrs after ordering.

How sharing works:
- the main account owner can share via link or email.
- the subscription is for 1 year from activation - so if someone from the group joins later, they will need get less than 365 days (I offered to share it at pro-rated cost)
- all of the group needs to renew after an year. One of us needs to remind the rest :)
- we do not see each other's files or data. Only the billing is shared.
- We assume the group will continue to renew after 1 year. In a case where this does not happen, members can join a different group.

Thanks @gigap501 @SpaceRim
That explains it clearly.
I was hoping the Niti Aayog launched Cloud storage Digibox will be great service and waiting for it to settle down and see the final results but as of now it seems very poor from what reviews are saying about it on the net. it is still at an early age and like most government initiative they take their own time to get better.
If they do manage to get it work decently. It will do wonders for people like us looking for good reasonable cloud storage for long term.

Yes. I wish it just did what it was suppose to do. I am still hoping it gets better with time but definitely avoiding till I am satisified with feedback.
