i've got 159 folders of photos..totaling 14 GB.

Is there anyway to upload folders just by dragging them in?

I think the skydrive limit per upload is 50MB with a total free capacity of 25GB. And you probably will have a hard time finding a free upload site for so much data - at least in one shot.

you can use dropbox drag and drop into its folder and the folder syncs, however the free limit is 2GB although you can earn extra space by recommending others and once they accept then your space increases, you could pay a little to have a larger space

well, I have everything in Picasa and when you add photos to it, it automatically synchs to Picasaweb. I also wanted to see if SkyDrive did the same. You can individually add files, but I don't want to have to make 159 individual olders and then fill each of them up.

Its been 100 MB for a while now.
While you cannot drag and drop a folder, you can select multiple files and drag them to the skydrive file pane. AFAIK, pictures do not account towards your storage space on skydrive. (In other words, unlimited storage for pictures.) I have not yet verified that claim.

Thanks for updating me on the 100MB limit. I have not used it for a while. I prefer Fileswap these days.
