Get 100GB of extra Microsoft OneDrive storage for 2 years

Previously I though this was only working for the United States (or from somewhere else using a proxy), but this worked fine for me from within the Netherlands.

Enjoy your extra cloud storage.

OneDrive / SkyDrive – fix for onedrive sync engine host stopped working

As an IT professional I tend to work on multiple systems (tablets, laptops, desktops) and I use OneDrive (SkyDrive) extensively to always have access to the latest versions of my documents.

I love OneDrive, but today when I wanted to continue working on my desktop I got an error : “onedrive sync engine host stopped working”. So first thing I tried was just restarting OneDrive, which didn’t work. Then I figured … ah well let’s just reboot and see what happens.

When this also didn’t work I looked online and saw I wasn’t the only one experiencing this. I also came across the OneDrive Troubleshooter tool. After I ran this, followed the instructions and waited about 5-10 minutes, it worked properly again.

I hope this helps you to resolve similar issues.

Notes:

  • In processes the process shows as OneDrive Sync Engine Host , but the process is still SkyDrive.exe
  • In the application log, an event 1000 was generated with the following information:Faulting application name: skydrive.exe, version: 6.3.9600.17055, time stamp: 0x53291a62
    Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x00000000

Microsoft Skydrive improved, but freely available space decreased from 25GB to 7GB for new users. Existing users need to perform manual action to keep 25GB.

Microsoft SkyDrive is decreasing the storage available to users from 25GB to 7GB. Existing users however can keep the 25GB but manual action is required: http://ludwigkeck.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/get-your-free-25-gb-of-skydrive-storage/

Also keep in mind that Microsoft Skydrive will become more and more integrated with Windows 8 and that they have also released an application (like dropbox) that also works for previous Windows versions. For more information check:

UPDATE:

Google drive has also launched and also dropbox is making improvements to its service. Before deciding to use any service however, compare their terms of use: http://www.theverge.com/2012/4/24/2972228/cloud-storage-terms-of-service-comparison-avoid-google-drive
