Windows 7: SkyDrive mapped to Windows Explorer

26 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
SkyDrive mapped to Windows Explorer

I have one problem,I connected skydrive to my Windows Explorer following this instructions How-to: Connect Your SkyDrive In Windows Explorer | mynetx
And I did it,but it shows me wrong information.
It says 136gb free of 277gb but it should be 24.99 gb free of 25 gb.
Here is a Screenshot.

My question is how do I solve this?

Not sure you can. Mine says I have 106Gb free of 155Gb total.

It's something about the webDAV implementation that always shows you the space of your C drive and not what's in your Cloud Storage.

Hi wizard25,
Your best modus operandi is to uninstall SkyDrive then reinstall to one of your partitions, preferably the one with most free space.

not sure why you want this when you can access all the skydrive folders from the skydrive folder you can install,

Download SkyDrive - Access, store, and share your files

i have my skydrive folder showing in the explorer favorites column and in the hidden icons on the taskbar

the only point would be to see the space left, but thats not showing you say so again no point to it.
