    Microsoft have been making changes to Skydrive. Now the service only offers a space of 7GB to new users although if your an existing customer you can upgrade to 25GB for a limited time only:

    Thanks Ross.
    I grabbed the free 25gig upgrade while the grabbing was good.
    Not sure if I'll actually use it or not, but who knows with the way things are trending towards the cloud, having the space and not needing it is better than needing the space and not having it.

    I thought the same way Randy. At the moment 25GB seems a lot for me personally but as you say, things can change! :)
