I was exploring the newly announced Google Drive cloud based storage and collaboration platform. I went back to my Microsoft SkyDrive account to write an article on how to compare Google Drive with Microsoft SkyDrive.

On the left panel of the SkyDrive web interface, I saw the message "7 GB" and also so the option "Manage Storage". What I remember was, Microsoft offer free 25GB storage at the SkyDrive. So, I clicked on the "Manage Storage" link to see where did my 25GB gone. Surprisingly, I saw that my current storage was reduced to 7GB but there is a button that says "Free Upgrade". There was a balloon popup with the message:

"For a limited time, loyal SkyDrive users can upgrade from 7 GB to 25 GB for free!"
