SkyDrive changes to OneDrive with pleasant surprises

A couple of months back SkyDrive was renamed to OneDrive following a UK court ruling. As part of that rebranding exercise Microsoft gave out 10 Petabytes (10,000 Terabytes) to users in an online contest.

Unfortunately I was not one of the 100,000 users to receive 100GB of extra space. However Microsoft was nice enough to send me a 20GB consolation by way of an ‘Enthusiast Bonus’.

Coupled with my paid 20GB top-up and a free 3GB given by OneDrive as part of their Camera Roll bonus I have a nice 68GB quota in my OneDrive account.

If you have not used the Camera Roll upload feature of the OneDrive iOS App (also available on the Android version), you should try it. Every couple of days I turn on the OneDrive App and it automatically uploads all newly captured photos to my OneDrive account, ensuring that I never lose my photos if I ever misplace my phone (pray never..).

In addition to being an insurance policy for your special moments, it is also a great way to view your photos on your laptop without actually having to manually sync your photos to your laptop.
