As you might have heard the news by now, Microsoft has recently renamed their SkyDrive cloud storage service to OneDrive, and as part of that rebranding process, it seems that Microsoft has also reached out to loyal OneDrive users and offered them an additional free 20GB of storage. According to reports, Microsoft has started to send out emails informing these selected users that they will receive extra storage space as thanks for remaining loyal to the OneDrive service. We’re not sure what sort of requirements one has to meet in order to qualify for the extra storage (it has been speculated that it might only be for paying customers), but if you have been using the service for a while, be sure to keep an eye out on your inbox for the email!
This is not the first time that Microsoft has given out free storage. Back in 2013, Microsoft also gave early adopters of Outlook.com extra free storage, and the same was then applied to Windows Phone customers who were given an extra 20GB of storage themselves. In any case if you’re a OneDrive user who has been given the extra 20GB of storage, do let us know in the comments below, and for those who did not get the extra space, we’re sorry to hear!
