MICROSOFT is throwing 100GB of free OneDrive storage at Dropbox users in a bid to lure them to its own storage offering.
Microsoft confirmed the generous offer on Twitter, urging customers to 'Drop the Box' to claim 100GB of free OneDrive storage for a year.
Dropbox users who want to take the firm up on the offer can head over to Microsoft's OneDrive bonus website, where you'll be asked to verify your Dropbox account.
Microsoft will then request a PDF to be added to your Dropbox, before the promotional storage is added to the OneDrive account.
Microsoft's offer appears to be taking a dig at Dropbox, but the firms recently announced a number of collaborations.
The pair announced in November that Dropbox will be tightly integrated into Microsoft's Office service, allowing users to access Dropbox from Office and edit Office files in Dropbox.
Shortly after this, Dropbox announced an app for Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system, which allows users to pin Dropbox files to a Live Tile home screen.
Microsoft's offer to Dropbox users comes as the OneDrive service celebrates its first anniversary.
Omar Shahine, group programme manager for OneDrive, said in a blog post released on Thursday: "I can’t believe it was only a year ago that we launched OneDrive.
"We wouldn’t be anywhere without the hundreds of millions of people that use OneDrive and I wanted to say thank you on behalf of the entire OneDrive team.
"We've been working hard to make OneDrive the one place for all of your files, including photos, videos and documents, available across the devices you use every day for work and life." µ
