Re: @Pascal

It's part of the T&Cs for services like OneDrive that you don't use them to store illegal content, and that Microsoft have the right to ban you from the service for so doing. Microsoft employees are not going through everyone's files to do this; this article and others have made clear that the initial determination is made by an automated scanner. It's only material flagged up by the automated scanners that is reviewed by an actual person.

I don't have any problem with this personally as long as there are good controls to prevent employees from reviewing my material in the absence of any indication that they should.
