SkyDrive is a free online storage platform that is available from Microsoft. It allows you to upload and then share files- PDF, video, Office documents, photos etc.
This is also great if you travel – you no longer have to panic if you can’t find your flash drive with your presentation on it or you need to suddenly access or share a file while on the road!
- You get 25 GB free online storage
- You can create folders
- You an upload existing Office documents and in many cases create new office documents online using Office WebApps which are basically stripped down versions of Office applications.
- You can password protect your folders and then allow access to individuals or groups.
To find out more about it, go to http://explore.live.com/windows-live-skydrive-get-started. You access everything through Windows Live so if you already have a Live email or a Hotmail email you can use that otherwise you have to create one. It has a lot of potential. It is a little work to set it up but you can access it from anywhere and share it with anyone. How cool is that.
Have a great weekend.
