Description

That is not a typo. Today, the SkyDrive team announced that they are increasing the amount of free storage to five times what it was before, going from 1 GB to 5 GB. With this new release of the service, some other improvements to the site have been made to make the service faster and more reliable too. This new version of SkyDrive, now no longer in beta, is also available in 38 more countries and regions. To see if your region is listed, check out the SkyDrive blog. The SkyDrive service is available from skydrive.live.com. [Update: Now up to 25 Gig!]

    Nice, but why wait until the exact end of the beta to allow more space? Wouldn't the beta testers give that a try as well?

    I still think SkyDrive could use a desktop client, Explorer add-on, better multiple uploading, and a way for users to get extra storage possibly by paying for extra or something else.

    But it's nice for what it does. Can't wait to see more improvement, if ever.
