ONE Drive is official now
We’ve all witnessed the rapid proliferation of devices in our lives over the past few years, and I don’t know about you, but my files are also increasingly scattered—from my phone to my home PC, to my tablet. And these files are pretty important—my family pictures, financial documents, term papers, etc.
With SkyDrive built right in to Windows 8.1, we’ve made it really easy to always have your files with you; and for many file types, SkyDrive is the default location for saving your files. We didn’t want you to worry about filling up your hard drive, so we invented smart files to allow you to access your entire SkyDrive from your device, without actually having to store everything locally.
However, the number and size of these files also keeps growing and growing. I’m now in the habit of capturing a few gigabytes of photos on my phone each year, many more on my Fuji X-E1 camera, and I have even more at home on my PC. So we also want to make sure that your total SkyDrive storage space can keep growing in parallel. So today, we are happy to introduce a new storage option to add 200 GB of additional storage to your SkyDrive for $100 per year.
Just to put that in context: 200 GB is enough space to take a photo, every hour, from the moment someone is born, to the day they graduate from college
