Microsoft launched the final gold version of its Windows Live SkyDrive consumer storage service on February 21.

Microsoft launched the final gold version of its Windows Live SkyDrive consumer storage service on February 21.

Windows Live SkyDrive -- which has been known by a variety of names, including LiveDrive and Windows Live Folders (but not FolderShare, which is something else entirely) -- is a Microsoft-hosted storage service where users can save files, photos and other information.

The latest version of the service, announced today, now offers 5 GB of free storage and is available in 38 countries.

Google has been touting (quietly) its Shared Storage program (a k a GDrive) as the alternative to SkyDrive. Google was offering 6 GB of storage for $20 a year back in August 2007; not sure if Google has changed its plan since then.
