OneDrive Doubling Free Storage, 1TB For Office 365 Users

Fancy some more free storage? Microsoft has upped the allocation of free storage for OneDrive from 7GB to 15GB. If you’re an Office 365 customer, the news is even better — you now receive 1TB of storage as part of your subscription.

The 15GB figure means that OneDrive matches the free storage offered by Google Drive. There’s nothing to stop you signing up for both, of course. (Check our recent writeup of the pros and cons of using OneDrive for more on that.)

The Office 365 upgrade applies to both Office 365 Home (where 1TB per person is allocated for up to five people) and Office 365 Personal or University (1TB per subscription). Microsoft’s announcement says the additional storage will be added to accounts “soon”.

Microsoft has also cut storage prices for additional OneDrive capacity. It is now charging $US1.99 for 100GB (down from $US7.49), which also matches Google’s pricing.
