    More SkyDrive?

    Ok, when I was looking at the signup for Office 365, it was talking about an additional 20 gigs of SkyDrive, totaling 27gigs. But I already have 25 gigs through the promo a while back...so now will the 20 be added to my current 25? I would hope so...

    From the FAQ at Buy Office 365 Home Premium:
    "All SkyDrive users receive 7 GB of storage with SkyDrive for free. Additional storage can be purchased if needed. Customers with an active Office 365 Home Premium or Office 365 University subscription receive an additional 20 GB of SkyDrive storage, per subscription, for a total of 27 GB of storage. This additional storage is not available during trial periods.

    This additional 20 GB of SkyDrive storage is applied to the SkyDrive account that is linked to the Microsoft account used to create the Office 365 subscription account."

    NOTE: the above is only for Office 365 Home Premium.

    If you are on one of the commercial SKUs of Office 365 see Skydrive and Office 365 and What is SkyDrive Pro?.

    Which doesn't answer the question for us with grandfathered 25GB SkyDrive accounts. Or is it in one of the links somewhere?

    For Office 365 Home Premium the 20GB is added to the Microsoft account you use to subscribe to Office 365 for the lifetime of the subscription regardless of the amount of SkyDrive storage that account already has. Office 365 Pro is different. See the links.

    Not sure about the details, but I have Office 365 home and it shows 47 gig storage.

    Just in case that helps.
