As you may have heared: Microsoft is launching new options related to it’s Skydrive service. The new basic free offering now includes 7GB (formerly 25GB) of storage. You can extend the storage for a yearly premium (i.e. plus 20GB for 10 USD per year).
There is however an option for existing customers to avoid the downgrade from their 25GB of storage to the basic free 7GB of the new programme. Just log in to your Skydrive and click on the manage storage link. Follow the buttons to the basic offering and you should see a button on the right hand side: upgrade my free plan to 25GB. Click that and in a couple of seconds you are done and back to your old 25GB.
I have done that and I recommend this step to all existing Skydrive users.
