imageGreat day for SkyDrive. If you use it often you likely have gigs of files. But then you have an laptop with a tiny drive and you have a problem. Not any more:

With today’s release, you can now select which folders from SkyDrive are synced – making it easier to use SkyDrive with laptops or tablets with small drives. You’re in control. If you’d like to keep all your photos and documents in SkyDrive but only sync a folder of your most important documents to your laptop, you can do that – even if your desktop is syncing the full set. You can choose specific sub-folders to sync as well; you aren’t limited to your primary SkyDrive folders.

This feature is super simple to set up. You can set it up when you first install SkyDrive on your PC or Mac or later, when you’re already running SkyDrive

They’ve also made it easier to share.

Now, whenever you’re ready to share a file or folder, you can just right-click it and select Share. Your default browser will open right to SkyDrive.com and you can share your folder or file right from there. You can also view the file itself right on SkyDrive.com, which works great for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files with the Office Web Apps.

That’s a nice time saver. Good work on this.

  1. Took a bit longer than expected for Microsoft to get moving with SkyDrive but really liking these recent, rapid improvements. Finally usable and only getting better. Oh, and priced right, without conditions.
