If you’re a Windows Phone user you’re getting 7GB of free SkyDrive storage from Microsoft, just because you’re using Redmond’s mobile platform. The upper limit was lowered from 25GB, offered initially by Microsoft, to 7GB, back in April of last year. However, now you’re getting something back.
Microsoft will throw in 20GB extra SkyDrive storage for free, granted, for a year. This will be in addition to the free 7GB you’re already getting, for a total of 27GB. If you’ve received an email from Microsoft in your Inbox that looks like the one we got above, there’s a link inside which you need to click until January 31, 2014. It will take you to the storage purchase page, where a redeem code will automatically be entered for your account, in order to claim those free 20 gigs. Be advised, though: “Your extra 20 GB of free storage will expire one year after you click the green redemption link in this email.”
