Microsoft has two new announcements related to their SkyDrive cloud storage platform today.
They have added a recycle bin functionality to SkyDrive to allow users to recover deleted files.
SkyDrive already offer access to previous versions of the files stored on it. Recycle bin would allow recovery of files deleted accidentally.
Google Drive already has a Trash feature. So SkyDrive is just catching up.
Microsoft has also announced a brand new feature that would be launched in the near future. They call it Excel Surveys and as you can imagine, it is going to be similar to Google Forms.
We’re also putting the final touches on adding Excel surveys to SkyDrive. Like the recycle bin, this has been a top request from students in particular, as they’re great for getting suggestions for a group project or party, collecting feedback or research results, running a competition, and much more. And unlike competing services, you can easily use the power of Excel Web App, Excel for Windows, or Excel for Mac to sort, analyze, or chart the results of your survey.
