With the recent update Microsoft has changed the storage size for SkyDrive. Prior to April 23, 2012, SkyDrive offered 25 GB of free storage. This is still available to current users, however, it requires action by the user.
The size is reduced to 7 GB, which is also the size of free storage for mew users, and is in effect now.
If that is enough for you – Microsoft says “99.94% of SkyDrive customers today use 7GB or less” – then you need do nothing more. However, if you wish to regain the larger storage size, click on Manage storage – or the notice banner above your files listing.
On the “Manage storage” page the free upgrade is made very plain.
You can see the prices for additional storage space. But first, click Free upgrade! The process is quick and simple, so do it now.
