Microsoft’s OneDrive may be more than just a re-branding of SkyDrive

43 sec read

Microsoft announced its OneDrive rebranding of SkyDrive recently, and it appears the service will soon debut with some new additions. OneDrive will offer up to 8GB of additional cloud storage, similar to how Dropbox entices users to share referral links with friends. Microsoft is said to be planning a referral bonus of up to 5GB, which is made up of 500MB for each friend you refer to OneDrive, up to a maximum of 10 friends. 

Microsoft will soon rebrand its SkyDrive cloud storage service OneDrive. The OneDrive splash page currently reads “Coming Soon.” It now appears that there is more to the coming OneDrive rollout than a simple name change. According to leaked screenshots posted by LiveSide, Microsoft will roll out a number of incentives for users in an effort to boost their usage of the service, and bring their friends aboard as well. Microsoft declined to comment. SkyDrive, Microsoft’s current and soon-to-be-renamed cloud storage service, provides users with 7 gigabytes of free storage. Presuming that Microsoft maintains that level of free storage in OneDrive, users will be able to pick up a total of 15 gigabytes of capacity, given that the new incentive structure will allow users to agglom another 8 gigabytes to their account.
