On Wednesday, Microsoft formally launched OneDrive, after rebranding its cloud-storage service SkyDrive. On the occasion of this launch, Microsoft is giving away 100GB of extra storage to 100,000 people.
To attract new users, the first 100,000 people to join this cloud storage service will be given a whopping 100 GB of extra storage space for one year, Angus Logan, the Group Product Marketing Manager for OneDrive, told Neowin.
The 100 gigs of storage will be added to the 7 GB free storage that the service provides on sign-up, and you could also snatch up to 5 GB by inviting your friends over to OneDrive, and another 3 GB by letting SkyDrive backup the photos on your phone.
And yes, you can also snag away 200GB of free OneDrive storage by buying the Surface Pro 2 tablet. You can head over to OneDrive’s official Twitter account to check out the announcement later today. Meanwhile, we will update this post when the announcement goes live.Further reading: Cloud, Microsoft, OneDrive, SkyDrive
