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.
Thanks for hanging in there. We will add a Q&A to address the SPO admin UI coming soon - we're rolling the update WW as we comment. And make sure you've been shared with, too.
You will just have more space. There is no user action required to go from 7GB --> 25GB.
We're rolling the update WW, so not everyone will see the admin UI changes immediately. All should be in place around the globe within the next week. Hang tight.
The two services are separate by design - consumer and commercial. SkyDrive folders and documents are owned by the individual and not directly governed by a company. It can be set as policy within your company that employees not put company documents in SkyDrive, but we do not have controls to map your IT governance from O365 over your employee SkyDrive folders.
What you've described is upgrade from 2010 --> 2013, which means your user now has SkyDrive Pro (SDP) for the first time. Sweet! But, it is not a new library as it's an upgrade from what we used to term "My Documents." Thus it does not invoke the same action as creating a completely new SDP. An example: if you hire a new user today, and they navigate to their SDP folder for the first time, their SDP will be provisioned new. And they would have versioning turned on by default. And know that any existing SDP can manually turn it on as well. However, existing SDPs will not have the versioning settings be adjusted by Microsoft.
Is there a limitation of the numbers of items in the SkyDrive Pro libraries
As summer winds down and the busy fall approaches, you'll need even more help staying productive, and
Is the "Shared with Me" feature available to all users of Office 365 (including Small Business Premium)? We are currently in the trial phase and will be moving to a paid subscription in 10 days. Will I be able to see the Share with Me now, or is it only available once we move to a paid subscription? Thank you.
How about Mac support?
Office 365 is an excellent product, but there is still no Mac client- when can we expect that improvement? (an extra 18GB of unusable storage doesn't help much)
Please forgive me if this is a duplicate. I posted a question while I was logged in, but it asked me to log in again and seems to have lost my post.
My question is that I have Office 365 Plan E1. I don't see SkyDrive Pro under Site Collections on my SharePoint Admin Center page.
Are you rolling these new features of SkyDrive Pro out slowly, or do I have to activate something to enable them.
Good article to start with specific to SharePoint Online (SPO): office.microsoft.com/.../sharepoint-online-software-boundaries-and-limits-HA102694293.aspx, and then review the core aspects of SharePoint in this SP'2013 article (relevant to SPO in context of site collection storage limits in first article): technet.microsoft.com/.../cc262787.aspx - hth, MK.
It will appear to anyone who has use 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 and thus would not see "Shared with Me." I'll have to chk if trial tenants received same update at same time - though I think maybe not immediately. But for sure, in production, you would have rights to SkyDrive Pro in Office 365 Small Business and thus get access to new "Shared with Me."
Our current Mac support for SharePoint Online and SkyDrive Pro (SDP) is via the Web browser, Safari. Specific to SDP, you can drag/drop from the desktop into Web SDP (try it if you haven't yet). I know this is not what you are asking. We are actively planning next phases of SDP development for Web, apps and sync clients - with focus on addressing Mac in the mix of innovation. You'll see much Mac focus from MSFT. Hang tight and thanks for the comment.
The Exchange Online team recently announced that each mailbox was to be raised to 50GB. You can read the announcement here: blogs.office.com/.../exchange-online-mailbox-sizes-are-doubling.aspx -- so we adjusted our calculation in the post accordingly to be up-to-date.
