Microsoft offering 100GB of free OneDrive cloud storage for two years, no strings attached
Microsoft is offering 100GB of free OneDrive storage to all Bing Rewards members with valid Microsoft email addresses.

The software giant offers 15GB of free storage just to start, similar to, if not more than services like Google, Amazon, Apple and Dropbox. OneDrive is built-in to Windows 8 and promises to automatically sync all your files without any hassle.



In an effort to get more consumers to try out OneDrive over rivals, Microsoft is offering 100GB of free storage for the next two years, as long as you sign up for Bing Rewards.

Whether or not you care to use OneDrive or not, the offer is hard to beat. 100GB free with no strings.

Head here to claim your free storage: Bing Rewards Dashboard. If you aren't a Bing Rewards member, it takes one click to do so once you are logged in.

    No strings? really? So the fact that you have to sign up to Bing rewards and it's only for 2 years, isn't seen as a string? come on!!!!!!!!

    GOT IT!

    100GB for 2 years.........though I'll never use that amount and hopefully MS will do what they often do.........leave people (early adopters) with that 100GB forever.

    As for "no strings".....well that would be "no strings" based on the info disclosed at the beginning so quit nitpicking!

    As for signing up for Bing, I did, then immediately unsubscribed.

    I say, learn German and 'kwicherbichin'

    When you store files in the cloud, these are accessible to legal snooping, without any process. Cloud computing was an alternative to high hard drive prices, way back when a 40GB was over $ 200.00-when hard drive prices fell, storing files online was no longer a value. For my part, after reading the "terms", it is not worth the intrusion. The only use I have for MS IE 11 is Hotmail. Everything else is TOR, and Duck Duck Go

    Agreed!

    Then I started using Truecrypt and created a couple 2GB container files and they shut down so I created a .VHD in Windows Disk Mgmt. at 2GB each, One for my MS OneDrive account and one for my Dropbox account. Then attached those .VHD files and then mounted, assigned drive letters and encrypted with Bitlocker. Now I store those on my syncable folders and those are where I store my resumes, screengrabs of all my paid receipt confirmations when paying bills online, etc.

    PERFECT!!!!!


    As I have heard, the only thing keeping Dropbox employees from prying though your stuff freely is a clause in their files they signed when hired.

    With all of the various incentives, I now have 240gb of free storage for at least a year, if not more.

    The original SkyDrive incentives are still on my account, so this may not be as "limited" as some think!

    Brilliant!- Me and my customers all use it and I still have over 250gb free from skydrive. I don't see any strings.
