Microsoft has upgraded the amount of storage space, for all users of their cloud storage service, One Drive (formerly SkyDrive),
Prior to this, free users had just 7 GB storage space in their OneDrive account.
But now users visiting the official webpage of the service are being greeted with the message
“Easily store and share photos, videos, documents, and more — anywhere, on any device, free. Plus, get 15 GB when you sign up.”
With this move Microsoft OneDrive, offers the same amount of free space, that Google Drive does.
All you have to do to get the 15GB free storage is, sign in to your existing Windows Live account, or sign up for a new account. You can view the amount of storage space you have, from your account’s settings.
As you can see from the screenshot above, you can earn an extra 3 GB free space, by downloading the OneDrive app on your phone and activating the Camera Roll Backup. You can read our article about it for more information.
