New screenshots from Gemind.com.brhave leaked onto the web today revealing a new set of storage upgrade and desktop client support for SkyDrive. These images arrive just in time for the Windows 8 consumer preview, which is set to launch at the end of February.

One of the images includes a banner which shows support for desktop clients for both Mac and PC. Users have been calling out for this since the service launched.
