Update: This service has been reduced to 7GB
Not anymore. If your hard disk or online storage account is running out of space and you have no budget to upgrade, one of the best options to store/back up your files is Window Live’s SkyDrive. SkyDrive has 25GB of free online storage
How do you get one?
Pretty easy. All you have to do is to go to Windows Live and sign up. Once you are done, log in and hover your mouse to Windows live logo located at the upper left of the Windows Live page, and then choose Skydrive (see figure below).
In Skydrive, you can choose to keep your files on your own, to share it with friends, or to make it public.
