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.

Is this supposed to be live NOW or is it being rolled out to domains soon?
sorry so long....Is there a way I can prevent my users from creating a personal SkyDrive Live account using the company's O365 assigned account? We understand we can hide the SkyDrive App or prevent https://skydrive.live.com/ address on our company owned devices but not from home or a BYOD. Since we do not have control over personal Live accounts (ie: can not legally search it) when a user leaves the company and we remove their O365 account then the personal SkyDrive Live account as well gets destroyed - whether or not I knew one existed. Users may not uncover this either right away, asking for their personal data back way after its too late. Because they are allowed to create a Live Account with any email address even the O365 PAID company address I feel this is a hole or an issue for us. I understand we need "processes" of our own wrapped around this, but again I can not control what they do at home, and you (MS) have made this so easy to sign up for one, users will accidently go around work processes and make the mistake to login and create a personal Live account with their O365 company Paid Account. Why not prevent them from using their company PAID O365 account from creating a Live account that the company has no control over? I have no problem putting a policy in place that says use any other email account you like for personal storage on Live, but not the Paid company's account. Is this my only solution?

The file upload limit has been increased across SharePoint Online and SkyDrive Pro. Successfully tested today!!
Mark, our scenario is this: telling users they no longer need their "user drives" because they can upload everything to SkyDrive Pro and work from anywhere. They download SkyDrive Pro, start with an empty drive, and move over several GB of existing files from Windows. Many of our users have the habit of using certain symbols in their files names, specifically "&" and "#", which are not allowed. Windows has always allowed them, so this requirement is new. Staff are forced to rename hundreds of files for sync to complete.
Our IT staff, already familiar with SkyDrive (consumer), currently have a "utilities" folder inside of their SkyDrive, containing portable EXEs command-line applications. They even add this "utilities" folder to their PATH. Very cool! When they try to replicate the same thing on SkyDrive Pro, they can't, because of file type restrictions.
Staff were also plagued by error code 0x80040208. There is some indication this is caused by having file names longer than 63 characters, but we never narrowed it down conclusively. It required some staff staff to do a complete re-sync of their drives every few days.
Agreed. Many Mac Office 365 users have been requesting this for some time. While Microsoft is on a roll with listening and doing, will this be addressed? Is there something for Mac in the pipeline? Office 2011 for Mac is a little crippled in respect of connecting to SharePoint Online.
I don't see anything yet in my E3 plan, any news on this?
