SkyDrive to be renamed OneDrive


It’s official … on January 27, 2014 Microsoft announced an upcoming name change to their cloud storage service. SkyDrive and SkyDrive Pro will soon be known as OneDrive and OneDrive for Business, respectively.

The rebranding of SkyDrive is a result of a trademark case filed last year by British Sky Broadcasting.

Skydrive 25GB Upgrade

If you have a Microsoft SkyDrive account, you can increase your maximum storage capacity from 7GB to 25GB for free. Just go to your SkyDrive account and click on ‘Manage Storage’.

If you do not have a SkyDrive account, create one for free, and it’s possible that you too can upgrade your storage from 7GB to 25GB.

I cannot say for certain, but I believe this free upgrade will be available through the month of April.
