Whoever said you don’t get something for nothing is clearly not a subscriber to Microsoft’s Office 365 services. Because the company has recently announced they are increasing the size of user mailboxes in all Exchange Online and Office 365 service plans from 25 to 50 GB. At ZERO increase in monthly service fees!

Additionally, Microsoft has announced they are increasing personal SkyDrive Pro storage for both new and existing customers from 7 GB to 25 GB! That’s an increase of 3.5 times at absolutely no increase in monthly fees! That’s incredible!!

If you still require more SkyDrive Pro storage you can buy extra – now up to 100 GB – at $.20/GB/month.

Other improvements of note include the ability to upload files to SkyDrive Pro of up to 2 GB in size. Also, versioning of files is being turned on by default, allowing saving of the last 10 versions of your files.

And there’s a new feature – the Shared with Me view – that allows you to see all the files and folders that other users have shared with you from their SkyDrive Pro libraries, making it super easy to find what you’re looking for.

Of course, there are all the little details in these new offerings that you will want to be aware of. To drill down on them, click here for more details on Exchange Mailbox increases. And click here for more info on the increases and improvements in SkyDrive Pro.
