Windows Phone Users Get 20GB of Free SkyDrive Space

Microsoft is giving its Windows Phone 8 owners a nice holiday bonus of 20GB of SkyDrive space for free. This is in addition to the 7GB every new Microsoft Account user receives in their SkyDrive account.

Windows Phone Announcement

20GB Free SkyDrive Space for a Year

If you have a Microsoft account and own a Windows Phone, you should receive an email letting you know of the 20GB of free SkyDrive space. The email for the offer should be sent to the Microsoft email account you used to set up your phone.

The catch? Well, the additional 20GB of space is gifted for a year. After that, according to the email:

Your extra 20 GB of free storage will expire one year after you click the green redemption link in this email.

It’s not clear what will happen to your data after that year of gifted space. I would guess you would need to purchase the additional space, which at the time of this writing starts at 50GB for $25/year. However, a lot can happen between now and the end of 2014.

SkyDrive Upgrade Options

Windows Phone users have until January 31st 2014 to redeem the free space.
