During OneDrive launch last month, Microsoft announced that extra 3GB of OneDrive storage will be added to accounts which has automatic camera backup enabled on their mobile devices. Many of us got the 3GB storage on the same day of the announcement, but some people didn’t get it. Microsoft today acknowledged the error and announced that they have fixed it. If you’re backing up your camera roll to OneDrive, you’ve now received your extra 3 GB of storage.
Microsoft’s email regarding the same,

With the introduction of OneDrive, we offered you an extra 3 GB of storage for backing up your camera roll to OneDrive.
Unfortunately, due to an error on our part, it took longer than expected for some of you to see the extra 3 GB in your OneDrive account. For that, we sincerely apologize. We pride ourselves on providing you, our best customers, with a seamless and dependable service. We’re sorry for any stress and frustration that our mistake may have caused, and we’ve worked hard to make sure that if you’re backing up your camera roll to OneDrive, you’ve now received your extra 3 GB of storage.
