SkyDrive Pro Storage Increased to 25GB

sharepoint-2013-logo_sm

Microsoft announced today on the Office 365 technology Blog that they are increasing the default storage available in each user’s SkyDrive Pro to 25GB from the current 7GB.  They’ve also added an option allowing increase to 50GB or 100GBs of storage on a user by user basis.  The optional additional storage will come out of your regular tenant storage allocation.  Tenants can buy additional storage if needed at a cost of $.20 USD/GB/Month.  Microsoft is also adding a new view to SkyDrive Pro that will display links to all the documents that have been shared with you personally, no matter whose SkyDrive Pro they are stored on.  So you get more room for storing and sharing your own documents and easier access to all the documents that others have shared with you.  That’s what I call a Win/Win.
