FREE – Windows Live SkyDrive has been released out of Beta and upgraded from 1GB storage space to 5GB with a maximum upload size of 50MB, and you can upload up to 5 files at a time.
I have been beta testing this since it was first announced and was one of the few lucky GB-based to get my hands on it before they temporarily closed it off to US-only beta testers.
Now part of Microsoft’s Windows Live range of services (now available to all Windows Live / Hotmail users in 38 countries), SkyDrive allows you to store documents, pictures and other files online in the computing cloud, and then access them from any internet-connected web browser. You can keep files private or share them with your friends and colleagues, or make them public to the world. A very nice freebie, and better than e-mailing files to one another!
In fact, if you would like to read the rest of this news article, you can download it from my SkyDrive Public Folder!
