Now we're OneDrive  

SkyDrive is now OneDrive. Find the features you count on and all your files, right where you left them. Easily store and share photos, videos, documents, and more—anywhere, on any device, free. Plus, get 15 GB of free storage when you sign up.

Your files

If you used SkyDrive previously, all of your files are now available in OneDrive. You can sign in and use them as usual.

Where is SkyDrive? And where did my SkyDrive files go?
Your files are right where you left them, so you can sign in as usual to access them. SkyDrive is now OneDrive, but nothing was rearranged or deleted during the update. Get more info.
Why do I still see "SkyDrive" in apps and online? Is that an error?
No, it's most likely not an error—just part of the update. Over the next few months you might see SkyDrive in some places and OneDrive in others. However, the product features will continue to work the way you expect them to.
Can I update my apps so they show the new name? Do I need to take any action?
No. You don't need to do anything, and this change will happen automatically. The updates won't change your account, and you can work with the website and apps the same way you did on SkyDrive.
