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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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

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