In an e-mail to current Catmail users, Microsoft has announced changes to its SkyDrive network storage service, including a reduced quota.
SkyDrive comes bundled with Catmail and offers free could storage for alumni and undergraduate students. Microsoft's latest incarnation of the service includes tighter integration with operating systems like Windows 7, Windows Vista, and OS X Lion; however, OHIO users will see their free storage limits drop from 25GB to 7 GB.
According to the Microsoft e-mail, for a limited time current users can request that their free limit remain at 25GB:
If you are not one of our top 1% most active customers, we are extending a limited time offer to keep your account at 25GB of free storage. To continue using 25GB of free storage, login to SkyDrive immediately, and follow the on screen instructions as soon as possible! If you choose not to take action, your free storage limit will be reduced to 7GB effectively shortly.
The e-mail did not specify an expiration date for the free offer, other than "shortly."
