Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware they had changed. It's been a while since I installed it.

+1 Rep, Guntmeister. SDExplorer is a great find. I've submitted it to Brink for addition to the Free Software section of SevenForums, and I've credited you with the find.

Now, if only we can get Microsoft to add SkyDrive support to SyncToy...

Thanks. Just installed the new version. Still seems to work great.

Ok thanks I downloaded the SDExplorer and I was trying to copy my pictures to the skydrive as a backup but when I selected them all and went to copy them it said it would take 12 hours. I guess there is not any way to speed this up? Does anyone else use this as a backup also? Thanks

Hello lsufrontier.




How big are the files and what type of IP connection do you have?

Peter I noticed in your screenshot that you are showing an out of date Flash player.

If you put everything into a .zip folder, uploads are no problem. But the .zip folder must not be larger than 50MB - that is the maximum that Skydrive allows per upload. You have, however, a total capacity of 25GBs. Just have to chop it into pieces.

Ohhh ok how do I make a zip drive? Say my pc crashes and I want to recover everything that I saved on skydrive. Is that possible to take the files from skydrive and put them back on my pc? I just want to make sure before I even do all of this. Thanks

Hello again lsufrontier.


You right click the files you want to add to the zip folder and select "Compressed (zipped) folder".
