SkyDrive storage updates. A new, more flexible approach to personal cloud storage that allows power users to get additional paid storage as their needs grow.
Microsoft has announced a number of new features have been added to its cloud storage service, SkyDrive – including Dropbox-like functionality.
IMP: Unfortunately, Microsoft is giving with one hand and taking away with the other. New SkyDrive users will find that free storage has decreased from 25GB to just 7GB. If you are an existing user, then you need to head over to SkyDrive.com and go to the Manage Storage page to keep hold of you 25GB free storage.
Skydrive is quite unknown inspite of having been around for years now. Irony considering a cash rich company like MS is backing it. Now if they can put in the right push and come up with a nice syncing strategy like Dropbox (or buy out the company itself), it would be a major win for them in their cloud strategy
my backup on google drive is nearing 70GB. skydrive is not an option for me coz i am paying for google drive. paid skydrive is of course cheaper than google right now :Confuzzled:
one thing i love about google drive is the ocr they perform on the files stored on it. it handle images as well. it manages to find text in android screenshot and billboards in regular photos. it's pretty cool.
just ran another check. it found this image for a search for gurgaon.
