Microsoft To Offer Extra 8 GB Of Free Storage To OneDrive Users If They Setup Their Accounts With PC Sync And More



Last month, Microsoft announced the re-branding of SkyDrive to OneDrive. Microsoft is yet to start with the usage of the new name in general public and they are planning to launch it with a marketing campaign. LiveSide today revealed that Microsoft is planning to offer up to 8GB free storage to OneDrive users if they complete certain tasks. For example, users will be able to earn 3 GB of extra storage by simply choosing to sync photos from their camera roll to OneDrive using the OneDrive app for iOS, Android, or the built-in Windows Phone function. Users can also earn up to 5GB of free storage on referring their friends to OneDrive.

Referral bonus – Users will be able to earn up to a maximum of 5 GB of extra storage by referring their friends to join OneDrive. For every friend you invite and actually joins OneDrive, both you and your friend will get an extra 500 MB of storage. You can only refer up to 10 friends for this offer.

        Please stop virgin-shaming, a man is not less a man if he’s a virgin, such behaviour should have no place on such a moral site as this one.

      I have the same (though 500 G.B.), my solution would be to use Tencent’s Cloud service which has 100 T.B. you could store days of non-stop porn video’s on it, though it won’t integrate with Windows Phone for automatic uploads… :-

  • Nham Thien Duong

    I haven’t seen this anywhere yet, also I have Windows 8.1 (Blue) so it’s automatic on my P.C. and I can’t install it as I could on Windows 7 and Windows 8… ¿will I still get the extra space? :-/
