Microsoft has released a preview version of its SkyDrive desktop application for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and OS X Lion users.

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.

Microsoft also announced changes to its free and paid storage offerings. All new SkyDrive users will be offered 7GB of free space, a reduction from the usual 25GB of storage. Microsoft believes that 99.94 percent of SkyDrive customers use 7GB or less today, so most new customers will be unaffected. Existing users of SkyDrive who are using more than 4GB of space (as of April 1st) will automatically keep their 25GB of free space, while other existing users can simply opt-in to ensure they don’t lose the allocation.

Download Skydrive for Windows

@laranz yes, like Google Drive, iCloud and DropBox. I don’t understand why do we need so many services that look exactly the same, they could spend their time in creating something new and original. I’m using DropBox btw, on my computer, laptop and smartphone, and I’m not switching to any other.
