Use Windows Live SkyDrive as virtual folder

Windows Live SkyDrive offers 25GB of free online storage where you can store your files, images and what not. The only hassle is that you need to upload a few files only at a time, which is time consuming.

This is where SkyDrive Explorer comes in handy.

'Computer' window
In the virtual SkyDrive folder you can easily add or remove files and also folders. I’m not sure if there are any limitations to copy files to the virtual folder but the online storage limits uploads to only 50MB at a time.
I tried copying a 57MB file to the virtual folder and the estimate time for it to complete was 37 minutes.
Download SkyDrive Explorer here. It supports XP and above only.
Please visit the FAQ page of SkyDrive Explorer is you have any problems with the software.

  1. I used Skydrive when it hit Beta and it was pretty cool.

    It’s an interesting take on the system of how Microsoft will make money off this type of situation with no real ad revenue generated from the explorer client and such.

    Either way, this is a great solution for those that would like to remotely backup some times “just in case”.
