Hi all - re: Skydrive it adds a link under "favourites". In order to sync the files locally and online can it automatically sync say "My Documents" folder or do I have to manually drag it to the SkyDrive favourites link each time (or alternatively work everything off the cloud drive)?


Thanks all .. .:)

Edit - I had a look at the right hand side notifications under SkyDrive - Settings. I can only select all the SkyDrive folders (as under favourties) or I can select specific folders again under SkyDrive folders. Can I not select specific folders on my hard drive to sync it to the cloud?

No, but you can simply use your SkyDrive documents folder as your documents folder instead - just edit the Documents library :)

Unfortunately not.

You sure Can - :) You can do it manually, OR one simple way is to download Skyshell, install it, then right click the folder you want to sync, - Sync To Skydrive, you'll see the skydrive syncing instantly .

After that anything thats altered in that selected folder will auto sync.

You can download Skyshell from sync_any_folder_to_your_skydrive_account (http://www.pcworld.com/article/257173/sync_any_folder_to_your_skydrive_account.html)

Just adding to above: But on saying that I actually move any folders into the Skydrive folder then create links to them, as sometimes its not instant with Skyshell.
