Skydrive out of Beta, storage space beefed up to 5 GB!!!

As announced by the SkyDrive team blog on february 21, Microsoft’s answer to Box.net and FileDen, the Microsoft SkyDrive Beta has gone beyond amazing its users, as along with coming out of BETA phase, the storage space is increased to 5GB (Box.net and FileDen gives 1GB for their free users. This is a welcome feature and it certainly incerases the usability of this online file storage service. This is one of the best and the most reliable file hosting services in the world.
However, one of the sour point about it still remains. The service still doesn't supports resume functionality, if one's internet connection breaks down between a download. This makes it inappropriate for downloading large files, specially for people who are on a slow (read < 256 kbps) snailband connections. Let's hope that this'll be resolved soon, after all its Microsoft :-).
