SkyDrive is a cloud storage service similar to Dropbox and Google Drive. SkyDrive is developed by Microsoft and comes with 7GB of storage for free, but you can purchase more if needed. SkyDrive requires a Microsoft account, but anyone can access public files. In addition to storing and sharing files, you can also embed downloaded content on your personal website. How cloud storage works
From a computing perspective, the cloud is online storage where you can safely store and access files without filling up your system's hard drive. You don't have to save the file to your local drive, but you can upload it to a remote server and then access it over the Internet. You can use your unique combination of username and password to access your files from other devices and post them online. These servers are encrypted to keep your data safe.
Create a SkyDrive Account
You can sign up for a SkyDrive account by visiting the official Microsoft SkyDrive page (link in Resources). You can use an existing Microsoft account or create one from the sign up page. You can also add SkyDrive to other devices such as Android smartphones. Once you've created your account, you can download the free SkyDrive desktop app and drag and drop or copy files to your computer's SkyDrive folder.
Upload and sync files
When files are saved to your SkyDrive folder, they are automatically uploaded and synced to your account. Enter your Microsoft account information and you can access your files from any device that has SkyDrive installed. You can also upload files directly to the SkyDrive website. Once your files are uploaded, you can organize them into groups and share them publicly or with other SkyDrive users. You can also download it back to your computer if needed. general document
SkyDrive lets you instantly work on your projects and share them with friends and colleagues. When creating a link to an uploaded file, you can decide whether the file can be edited. You can also change the privacy of a file so that only people logged into SkyDrive can view it. Whenever a file is changed, it is saved to the cloud so everyone can see the updated file. Once your files are ready, you can embed them in your personal website using SkyDrive as a host.
