By June 23, 2014Microsoft

With OneDrive, Microsoft want to give you one place to store your digital stuff: photos, videos, documents and other files.

As Microsoft increase their investment in cloud services, it does not come as a supprise that their storagespace increases evenly with the technology developement. Also, Microsoft want to provide a complete experience that brings their Office- products and lets you produce documents browser- based – everything you put in your OneDrive.

According to Microsots own blog, this gives the following:

1. OneDrive will come with 15 GB for free (up from 7 GB)

According to Microsofts data, 3 out of 4 people store less than 15 GB of data on their Personal Computer.
Keeping in mind what they may also have stored on other devices, Microsoft believe providing 15 GB for freeis a suitable offer (there is such thing as a free lunch!).

2. All versions of Office 365 will come with 1 TB of OneDrive storage

Also, soon you will get 1 TB of OneDrive with your subscription to Office 365. This means you will get one of the most popular productivity suite and an mind-blowing Storage space, for what they claim to be “an unbelievably low price”. That gives for home users the Office 365 Home ($9.99/mo) you’ll get 1 TB per person (up to 5 people),

3. Dropping storage prices in general

If you don’t need an Office 365 subscription, or the 15 GB free space don’t even up yor needs, they will also still provide monthly subscription storage options at reduced rates. The new monthly prices will be $1.99 for 100 GB (previously $7.49) and $3.99 for 200 GB (previously $11.49).
