Generous Microsoft boosts OneDrive storage


Microsoft has announced revised pricing for its OneDrive cloud storage. If you’re a user, you’ve probably got some more space!


Here’s the major bulletpoints:

– Free storage will increase from 7 GB to 15 GB
– Storage bundled with Office 365 subscriptions will increase to 1 TB
– £1.99 /month for 100 GB of storage

And similar to Dropbox, it is possible to earn extra storage space in a couple of different ways: You can earn 500mb for every friend you refer to OneDrive (up to 5GB) and you can earn 3GB for free, simply by using OneDrive’s camera back-up feature.

The price of Office 365 is also set to change:

– £5.99/month for Office 365 Personal
– £7.99/month for Office 365 Home (up to 5 people)
– £59.99/4yr for University

Not bad!
