Microsoft has removed the beta from Windows Live Sky Drive and pumped it up to 5GB from the earlier 1GB.
This is good for people like me. But for some reason Sky Drive… is not meant for me.
A brief history
On its launch, Windows Live Folders (as it was then) was provided as a limited managed beta and available only to a few testers in the United States. On August 1, 2007, the service was expanded to a wider audience. Shortly after on August 9, 2007 Windows Live Folders was renamed Windows Live SkyDrive and the participation was expanded to testers in the United Kingdom and India. On February 21, 2008, Windows Live SkyDrive is officially out be beta testing stage and released to 38 countries and regions.
