Windows 7: Can't get fetch to work to sync files with Skydrive.

16 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 32 bit
Can't get fetch to work to sync files with Skydrive.

I have SkyDrive on Windows 7 but I have no icon in my toolbar (at the bottom right hand side) just one on my desktop screen. I might have deleted it somehow. But now I notice that my files are not updating when I go to my iPad and launch Windows Live. I go back to make sure fetch is turned on on my desktop SkyDrive, but without an icon, I can't find it or settings. Playing around with help,. the furthest I get is something about a Group policy might not be allowing it and to see my administrator. I am on a wireless router. Help, please.

After reinstalling Skydrive, install Sync Any Folder to Your SkyDrive Account | PCWorld
which will give place sync on your rightclick context menu to sync any file or folder to Skydrive.
