    maybe in that update for windows 8.1 in March?

    I don't see skydrive anywhere

    used a registry file to disable skyedrive integration

    Dropbox FTW with 70 GB Free space that I got:

    20 GB from Referrals
    50 GB coz i signed in with my Galaxy S3 in the past so they give u 50 GB free for 2 years

    might be worth making sure you have all your stuff backed up from there before the switch, just in case MS makes a doodoo of your skydrive files.

    how in the world does OneDrive make more sense than SkyDrive? SkyDrive is a drive in the sky or cloud. It sounds completely sensible. OneDrive..what exactly is that supposed to mean? It sounds more like a "We don't have a clue what to call the thing now, we didn't expect this" moment.

    Did you miss the part (2nd sentence) where SkyDrive was being renamed due to a copyright dispute, hence they can't use that name anymore? :rolleyes:

    If anything, it falls in-line with the Xbox One. Could be a sign that they're changing some naming schemes to include... One :p

    All those with current SkyDrive accounts will be required to go through the store to fix the naming change or wait until the release of W9 :roflmao::harp: Just kidding :thinking::sporty94:
