What you need to know

  • Office 365 subscribers can now get up to 2TB of OneDrive storage.
  • Subscribers can buy additional storage above their included 1TB base in 200GB increments.
  • Microsoft is also upping its 50GB OneDrive standalone plan to 100GB for the same $2 per month price.
  • Office 365 Home subscriptions are currently on sale for $80 per year.

If you've been wishing for more OneDrive storage, Microsoft is delivering today with updates for both Office 365 and OneDrive standalone subscribers. The biggest change comes for Office 365, which will now let you upgrade to up to 2TB of storage for the first time. Previously, Office 365 users were limited to the free 1TB of storage that is included with their subscription.

You'll still start with the base 1TB of storage with Office 365. However, you can now purchase additional storage in 200GB increments starting $2 per month. If you want to max out at 2TB, you can purchase the additional 1TB of space for $10 per month.

While that's good news for anyone using a ton of space with Office 365, OneDrive standalone subscribers are getting a bit of a boost as well. Microsoft has increased its 50GB plan to 100GB of storage for the same $2 per month price. Microsoft says that the upgrade will roll out "soon" and subscribers will have the additional storage automatically added to their accounts.

Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC

Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.

KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse ($30 at Amazon)

Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.

AmazonBasics USB speakers ($16 at Amazon)

These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.

Razer mouse bungee ($20 at Amazon)

Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.
