Microsoft’s OneDrive increases storage with more space for your stuff

Online storage is one of those things we all have and need. Chances are you have a Dropbox account, storage on Google Drive, and even possibly a Box account, but if you have space on Microsoft’s OneDrive, you now have even more. Just like that.

The service formerly known as SkyDrive is getting a boost this week, as Microsoft provides an instant update to the amount of storage OneDrive owners receive.

From this week, the 7GB OneDrive storage supply provided to Windows and Office 365 customers is getting an update, increased to 15GB for free.

“Our data tells us that 3 out of 4 people have less than 15 GB of files stored on their PC,” said Mel Dewick, Microsoft’s Senior Product Marketing Manager on the Microsoft Australia Blog.

“Factoring in what they may also have stored on other devices, we believe providing 15 GB for free right out of the gate – with no hoops to jump through – will make it much easier for people to have their documents, videos, and photos available in one place.”

Storage also increases for people with a subscription to Office 365, with the 20GB space jumping in the next few months to 1TB of space, an increase of 1004GB which should be useful for people storing immense amounts of documents, presentations, and photos in the cloud.
