In the wake of Google unveiling its much anticipated Drive service, Microsoft released an update to its long-running SkyDrive service, no doubt strategically timed to turn attention away from Google's offering.
Here, V3 takes you through the pros and cons of both storages services to find out which boasts the best features and price plans for both consumers and enterprise users alike.
Price and storage
Top of all companies' and users' minds is the question of value. When it comes to the free services SkyDrive's 7GB offer still trumps Google Drive's somewhat disappointing 5GB.
When it comes to paid for services SkyDrive also wins out, offering 20GB accounts for £6 per year, 50GB for £16 per year and 100GB for £32 per year.
Google Drive, by comparison, charges customers on a monthly basis, currently letting Drive users upgrade to 25GB of storage for £1.54 a month, (£18.50 per year) 100GB for £3.08 a month (£37 per year) and a massive 1TB for £30.80 per month (£370 per year).
Microsoft's price plan gives companies and users more storage for a cheaper price across all its offerings.
