SkyDrive Pro is cloud storage for business. It's the place where employees can store, sync, and share their files across multiple devices with ease and security. With SkyDrive Pro you can collaborate with others in real time and edit documents from virtually anywhere via a web browser using Office Web Apps. Accessing your files from multiple devices (including Windows Phone, Windows 8, iOS, and Android devices) is a cinch with native SkyDrive Pro and Office Mobile apps. Not only does SkyDrive Pro deliver the frictionless user experiences that employees expect in a file sync solution, it's backed by a platform that provides industrial-strength content management, compliance, and content management controls.
We're continually improving the SkyDrive Pro service. The new SkyDrive Pro apps are now available in the Window Store and App Store. Today, we're pleased to announce three new significant improvements to SkyDrive Pro for Office 365 business subscribers - to help you be more productive:
Let's dive into the details!
The default SkyDrive Pro storage space in Office 365 is now 25 GB-for both new and existing customers.
Let's look at what that means for the overall storage for each user. With Office 365, you get 25 GB of SkyDrive Pro storage + 50 GB of email storage + 5 GB for each site mailbox you create + your total available tenant storage, which for every Office 365 business customer starts at 10 GB + (500 MB x # of user(s)1). If you and your company have growing storage needs across your various work streams and content types, we think you'll find Office 365 offers ample headroom on day one, at no additional cost.
1 In Office 365 Enterprise plans, only Office 365 Enterprise E1, E3, and E4 users contribute to the total available tenant storage. Kiosk workers and external users are not calculated into the equation. For small business and midsize plans, all licensed users contribute to the total available tenant storage.
SharePoint Online admins can now increase SkyDrive Pro storage space for those individuals that need and want more than the default 25 GB of storage. You can select increases in increments, up to 50 GB or 100 GB (the current SkyDrive Pro limit), and you can adjust the storage for up to 25 users at once. The storage you allocate will come from your tenant's overall pool of storage and you have clear visibility of how much total available tenant storage your company has to allocate to your users' SkyDrive Pro. If you need more tenant storage, navigate to the Storage Metrics page (Site Settings a Storage Metrics) and then to Buy quota, where you can purchase more; additional storage for SharePoint Online costs $0.20USD/GB/month. Note: this capability requires the SharePoint Online administration center and is not available in Office 365 Small Business and Small Business Premium.
SharePoint Online admins can increase users' SkyDrive Pro storage space from 25 GB to 50 GB and 100 GB.

Have you ever experienced the pain of trying to locate a document or folder a colleague previously shared with you? Shared with Me eliminates the worry of finding those important items, because now they're all visible in a single view from within your SkyDrive Pro.
The documents and folders you see in the Shared with Me view may live in someone else's SkyDrive Pro, or they may be shared from a standard team site document library. Once they are shared with you, you have the same permissions in SkyDrive Pro that you were originally given by the person who shared the documents with you. This means you can view a document, edit it, share it, and download it, and more- all as if it were natively stored in your SkyDrive Pro.
Shared with Me appears in the left-hand navigation pane of your SkyDrive Pro under Followed Documents.
Learn more about Shared with Me on the GetStartedSharePoint YouTube channel.
In the spirit of continually improving the SkyDrive Pro service, we're also increasing the overall file upload limit in SharePoint Online to 2 GB/file and the default recycle bin retention to 90 days (up from 30 days). And we're enabling versioning by default on newly provisioned SkyDrive Pro libraries, which saves the last ten versions, so you never lose an important document. These service improvements apply to SkyDrive Pro and to team site documents and data. We'll give you more details about these improvements and others in an upcoming post about increased limits across SharePoint Online.
Do more with more! Store, sync, and share is best with SkyDrive Pro. Now stop reading and go upload something already!

Q. How much SkyDrive Pro storage do I get per user?
A. 25 GB is the default in SharePoint Online and can be upped to 100 GB. 100 MB is the default setting for on-premises and it is configurable by the IT administrator.
Q. Can I buy more SkyDrive Pro storage?
A. Yes. Additional storage is sold at $0.20USD/GB/month and goes into a tenant's pooled storage. It can then be allocated to specified end users from 25 GB to 50 GB or 100 GB.
Q: Which Office 365 plans will have 25 GB of SkyDrive Pro storage by default?
A: The 25GB default SkyDrive Pro is for all Office 365 for business users who have usage rights to SkyDrive Pro. Specifically, these plans are: Office 365 Small Business (P1), Office 365 Small Business Premium (P2), Office 365 Midsize Business, Office 365 Enterprise E1, E3 and E4, Office 365 Education A2, A3 and A4, and Office 365 government G1, G3, and G4. Please note that Kiosk and "external users" do not have usage rights for SkyDrive Pro personal storage.
Q. Does this announcement apply to Office 365 Home Premium subscribers?
A. No. SkyDrive Pro is not the same as SkyDrive. The "Pro" is based on SharePoint, enterprise-grade content management. Thus, this article does not apply to Office 365 Home Premium offering, which combines the latest Office applications with 20GB of SkyDrive storage.
Q. Does this announcement apply to Office 365 dedicated subscribers?
A. No. The Office 365 dedicated plans are not receiving this same update, because they are managed in a unique, isolated infrastructure.
Q. What is the maximum number of docs I can sync using the SkyDrive Pro Sync for Windows client?
A. 20,000 documents for personal document libraries, 5,000 for team sites.
Q. Does SkyDrive Pro Sync for Windows use "differential sync"?
A. Yes, SkyDrive Pro Sync for Windows uses the Office Document Cache and syncs only the differences for Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files.
Todd Sweetser Hi Cloud Sellers! Great news! It was just announced that SkyDrive Pro as part of
What is the reason why there is a limit of 5,000 items for team site's document libraries? Are there any plans to increase this limit? Great job by the way.
Excellent news! Thanks and keep up the great work!
Great additions! When are we going to see those changes applied? It would be nice to have the "Shared With Me" feature in the Skydrive Pro client for all desktop and mobile clients Any plans for that?
This is a current list 'view' limit tied to sync'ing. We are reviewing plans to address, though nothing we can specifically share today. Thanks for reading the post and asking good, relevant questions - helps us understand the real blockers people are hitting or at least questioning.
Thanks, Oliver. Appreciate your eyeballs and sentiments. I'll make sure the engineering team gets the feedback :-).
לא מזמן, כאשר Office 365 עשה הסבה לסגנון העבודה ומערכות בגרסאות 2013, הצטרף לחבילה פיצ'ר חדש בדמות
We are rolling out WW now, and have hit a small issue with the SPO admin UI component to the new quota management capabilities. Stay tuned. Our "Shared with Me" is powered by SharePoint enterprise search, so not yet prevalent in clients - but like your feedback. Have you experienced "Most Recently Used" in the clients (super handy and similar)? Shows on Windows Phone, too, plus a new feature of the new Office Mobile for iPhone and Android phone apps...
Are there any plans to eliminate the file name and file type restrictions that currently exist in SkyDrive Pro? In a pilot deployment, our experience was far from the "frictionless user experiences that employees expect in a file sync solution".
At this point, I'd rather SkyDrive Pro be based on the consumer SkyDrive technology than SharePoint, and this is coming from someone who is a big SharePoint fan.
Microsoft listen. I've seen some heated discussions about the previous 7GB limit for SkyDrive Pro. It's great to see that adding your voice to discussion brings about positive change.
Aware and working on addressing both. What specifically per each issue you listed. Will help us track closer to your use requirements... to understand where you are most blocked. Thanks in advance.
Very nice to see versioning on by default. That's a very nice improvement.
Will this also be added to the Academic plans and is there a timeline for deployment?
@mkashman & @tpmehta - excellent new SkyDrive Pro features. I wish we could start taking advantage of them as part of my university’s move to Office 365 (A2). SkyDrive Pro is in holding pattern (and we know we aren't the only univ) while our Security Office works through issues. The problem we have is preventing restricted data loss (FERPA, HIPAA) if a faculty, staff, or student that works with protected and restricted data enables sync to a non-managed device, specifically one that is not encrypted. The dearth of SPO cmdlets makes it impossible to disable sync on a select group of user's My Sites. While with SPO, we know we can lock down My Site creation to a set of users while still giving them a SPO license, but we'd have students/faculty with SkyDrive Pro (no contact with restricted data) and those without (say Dental students who encounter HIPAA files). While implementation of AD RMS is not difficult and becoming increasing useful with the new release, end-user management and training, and end-user device management is not trivial (and needing to move to A3). With BYOD(es) mainstream, we would love to see local, transparent encryption of synced SkyDrive Pro storage, on any device that uses a SkyDrive Pro app. Office 365 has met many security regulations and we have a BAA agreement. And, yes, we have plenty of rules and policies, and training, on restricted data, but they don’t help Security Officers feel as good as encryption. Thank you, Joe (implementation team…).
