If you’re closing in on level four with ’s cal Guides program, it’s time to step on the gas.

That’s because after ly 21, the offer of free Drive storage drops from 1TB to 100GB. The unfortunate notice came in one of the regular emails to about the program.

cal Guides members got the bad news in an email.

As the message indicates, you have a little bit of time to still cash in the 1TB, but that requires 200 points in the cal Guide rankings, which requires a lot of reviews, photos, other contributions.

There was a little bit of good news, however. The notice offered details about deeper integration between otos Maps, so you can easily attach your images to a place you’ve visited.

Your pictures will appear inside of Maps for easy contributions.

You’ll need to enable location history to make this happen, which you can always turn off if this starts to feel a little too creepy.

The impact on you: Reducing storage offers unfortunately isn’t new, as Microsoft irked some customers recently over scaling back how much free space it offers through OneDrive. It’s hard to imagine running out of space, but it’s possible the program got so popular the company didn’t want to give out too much free room inside of its cloud.
