Windows Live SkyDrive - 25Gb of free file space in the cloud

Posted by ClifNotes, Aug 2008, permalink Web Service


I've been using this service for a couple of months. It's really a great service but for some reason I can't get too excited about it. Maybe it's the fact that it's from Microsoft? Maybe it's also the fact that I really don't need it?


In any case, SkyDrive may not be for me, but if you have tons of files you need to store online, this may be a big help to you.


File hosts I've used:

MyDropBox, YouSendIt, BoxDotNet, DropIo or GmailSpace.

Personal folders

Store files for yourself

Using multiple computers? No problem. Store and access your personal files from anywhere online.

Shared folders

Share files with friends

Sharing with friends, co-workers, or family is easy when you all add and update files in a shared folder.

Public folders

Share files with everybody

Some ideas are too good to keep to yourself. Share them in a public folder that only you can update.
