Today Microsoft has announced a new storage option for SkyDrive users. Users can now upgrade to 200GB of SkyDrive storage by paying $100 per year.

Microsoft announced this new storage plan at the launch event of Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 which held few hours ago in New York City.


According to Microsoft, 200GB is enough storage for photographs of a person to be stored from his birth to graduation. This statement can be true but it all depends on quality of photographs being taken of that person. But still 200GB of storage is worth.

Users can access SkyDrive from their Windows or Mac PC. SkyDrive client is available for Windows 7 users but for Windows 8 users, it’s available as an app.

It’s expected that Microsoft is going to integrate SkyDrive deeply within the explorer in Windows 8.1. So that users can easily store their files in the available online storage.

Increase SkyDrive storage

Right now, Microsoft has only upgraded the storage option but very soon we will see a new name of SkyDrive. It’s being confirmed officially earlier that Microsoft will rebrand the SkyDrive with new name and logo. I hope it’s done before Windows 8.1 users gets use to of the current online storage name and logo.

SkyDrive also offers free storage of 7GB which is there for every user but the storage can be top up by 20GB for $20, 50GB for $25 and 100GB for $50. So, 200GB is the highest available storage for the users till now.
