Microsoft boosts OneDrive capacity for Office 365 subscriptions

Vendor also doubles free Cloud storage for OneDrive and reduces pricing

Microsoft has significantly increased the capacity of OneDrive Cloud storage included with its Office 365 subscriptions from 20 gigabytes (GB) to 1 terabyte (TB).

The change applies to its Personal ($A9 per month), Home ($A12 per month for up to five users), and University ($A99 per four years) plans; each individual receives their own 1TB.

The move follows an upgrade to OneDrive for Business customers who were bumped from 25GB to 1TB in April.

OneDrive for Business was introduced in March as the new name for SkyDrive Pro. Companies could access the service from April 1 through Office Online, and do not necessarily have to sign up for Office 365 of SharePoint Online

In addition to the Office 365 increases, Microsoft has boosted the amount of free storage included in its standalone OneDrive Cloud storage service from 7GB to 15GB.

It has also reduced the pricing of additional storage, which is now charged at $A2 per month for 100GB (down from $8.99) and $A4 per month for 200GB (down from $13.99).

Microsoft claims all OneDrive updates will take effect in the next month.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
