Help with Sky Drive

I want to use the windows live sky drive as a backup for my documents and pictures on my pc. The one problem is that I can't figure out how to move more than one file at a time into a sky drive folder. Does anyone have a better way to do this? Thanks

I use this on multiple programs.

Hold "Ctrl" while clicking on each item. Then finally, drag and it will drag all of them.

I select one first (Without holding "Ctrl" yet), then I hold "Ctrl" and select every other. This works on most things for computering.

Thanks I think I have it but i dont know what to do next. I put the files in and then kept hitting up to higher level directory until it got where I wanted it but what do I do now to save all the files. When I exit off then go back on none of the files are there. Thanks

You need to use IE and install the Upload Tool

Open the page using IE and install the Upload Tool if its shown in the yellow bar:

Refresh the page and simply drag drop as many files as you like

Open Internet Explorer, then click on "Tools"->"Manage Add-ons". Has the "Windows Live Upload Tool" perhaps not been disabled?

I use Skydrive Explorer. You can add files using windows explorer interface. Drag 'n Drop. Much easier.

In my efforts to locate a complete download for SkyDrive Explorer (the link you gave is for a download manager that downloads and installs the program), I found that SkyDrive Explorer is now known as SDExplorer, available here. I'm checking it out now to see if it works.
