Microsoft OneDrive giving away 15GB of free storage, 1TB for Office users

Good news for Microsoft OneDrive users. The service has announced that it is offering 15GB of free storage, up from 7GB.

Even better is the fact that Office365 users will get a huge 1TB of free space, up from 20GB. That rather generous amount of storage was previously exclusively reserved for Office365’s business users.

This latest move brings OneDrive in line with its biggest rival; Google Drive – which also offers 15GB of free space – and puts it ahead of other competitors such as iCloud and Dropbox, which don’t offer nearly as much.

Additionally, Microsoft has also dropped the price of its monthly plans to $1.99 for 100GB (down from $7.49) and $3.99 for 200GB (down from $11.49). In fact, the prices are so low that the company chose to eliminate its 50GB monthly plan.

Existing users will automatically see the changes applied to their account, so it’s not just a ploy to grab new users.
