29.06.2014 13:58

Free OneDrive capacity is going up from 7GB to 15GB - for all users

Microsoft will dramatically increase capacity and lower prices for OneDrive, increasing pressure on other cloud storage providers and also sweetening the deal for prospective and current Office 365 customers.

 

The company will more than double to 15GB the storage capacity in the free, stand-alone OneDrive service for consumers. People get access to this free OneDrive storage also when they sign up for Office Online, the free, lightweight Web-based version of Office, and also when they sign up for Outlook.com, Microsoft's free webmail service.

 

Cloud storage has become extremely popular among consumers and businesses because it lets users access their files and documents from their different devices -- PCs, tablets, smartphones -- and share them easily with friends and colleagues.
