The 20 GB of free SkyDrive storage is in addition to the storage that is offered by your service. That comes out to approximately 27 GB or more depending on your service.
An email sent to Windows phone users stated:
To show our appreciation of Windows Phone customers, we are giving an extra 20 GB of free SkyDrive storage for one year. This is in addition to the 7 GB of free SkyDrive storage that all customers currently have.
SkyDrive is built into your Windows Phone. It’s personal online storage that you can access – along with the photos and files you save there – at SkyDrive.com from any Internet-enabled device, and through the SkyDrive mobile app.
To apply this storage to your account, click here by 31 January 2014.
If you do not yet have a SkyDrive account, you can sign up here. If you do not want a SkyDrive account, no action is needed, and there will be no change to you Windows Phone.
A great way of using extra storage is to automatically back up the photos and videos you take on your phone. When your photos or files are on SkyDrive, you can still get to them if something happens to your phone.
As the letter describes, a great use for your free SkyDrive storage is to back up your photos and videos which can take up a lot of space on your device! Check your email to claim your free 20 GB of free SkyDrive storage! Can’t find it? Don’t forget to check your spam folder.
