writes "Today Microsoft has released SkyDrive preview for Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista users in 106 different languages worldwide, which was avilable for Windows Phone, iPhone and iPad since December 2011. The company has also provided a preview version for Mac OS X Lion users too, providing access to SkyDrive documents directly within Finder. SkyDrive for Windows will allow users to drag-and-drop files (up to 2GB in size) to and from SkyDrive folders. Similar to Dropbox, all files and SkyDrive content will be managed in one central folder that syncs with Microsoft's online cloud storage. There is also a new fetching files option that allows SkyDrive desktop users to access, browser, and stream files from a remote PC running the latest preview of SkyDrive desktop — handy if you forgot to sync a particular file from your desktop PC while you away from your PC.
Microsoft also announced changes to its free and paid storage plans up to 100GB. All new SkyDrive users will be offered 7GB of free space, a reduction from the usual 25GB of storage, while for a limited time, any registered SkyDrive user who has uploaded files to SkyDrive as of April 22nd can opt in to keep 25GB of free storage while still getting all of the benefits of the new service."Link to Original Source
