Yesterday’s article I talked about, SkyDrive – Your Password Protected Hard Drive in the Cloud, that is available for FREE (from Microsoft). SkyDrive gives you 25 GB’s of of storage space that you can use to store files online (in the cloud) that can be accessed from anywhere there is internet access.
Following the posting of that article, I started to wonder what FREE options are there available to sync the files on my computer or tablet or smartphone with my SkyDrive Account. As a result I went on the hunt and found the following options available that will help you take full advantage of SkyDrive:
SDExplorer (to sync and access your SkyDrive Files from the Windows platform – your desktop or notebook computer):
SDExplorer is a free, easy-to-use, but very powerful extension for Windows Explorer. With SDExplorer you can perform all everyday operations with your documents on Microsoft Live SkyDrive™ using Windows Explorer, as if they were on your computer itself.
SkyDrive Browser (to sync and access your SkyDrive Files from the Android platform – such as tablets and smartphones):
Microsoft’s SkyDrive service is a nice chunk of cloud storage—25 GB, to be exact. Now you can view, download, and send your files in SkyDrive from your Android phone with SkyDrive Browser.
With SkyDrive on your Windows’s phone, it’s like having a thousand wallets for photos and hundreds of briefcases with your latest files. You can keep files to yourself or share them. Add photos from your camera phone manually or automatically. SkyDrive will also synchronize notes you take in OneNote.
With SkyDrive for the iPhone, you can now easily access, manage and share files on the go. You can also upload photos or videos from your iPhone to SkyDrive.
