SkyDrive update: now you can select what to sync

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.

We expect the update to be available to everyone within 48 hours. If you’re anxious and want it now, you can find links to download updates for Windows, Windows Phone, Mac, and Android from http://apps.live.com/skydrive.

SkyDrive just made some announcements. New applications for Windows Phone, Windows, Macintosh, iPad and iPhone to easily sync your files between these platforms.
Download the apps at https://apps.live.com/skydrive:

Besides the new applications/updates they also made a very important change: your free storage will be reduced! Each user will now have 7GB of free storage instead of 25GB for free. Unless you take the limited free offer to keep your 25GB.
To claim your 25GB just go to www.skydrive.com and click the message on top:

If you still want more storage you can buy it, with a maximum of 100GB (for now):

Great news with all the recent updates, except from the reduced free storage! :-)

Sync your family grocery list

This video below is another introduction to OneNote, just like the Keep Shopping video.

Open skydrive.com and create a new OneNote file and share it with friends or family. Or just create a new OneNote file on a shared folder and allow network users to access it.

Try it and maybe your organization will benefit from it. ;-)

Also make sure you have the latest updates installed ;)

Keep Shopping

FYI: We are using a SkyDrive hosted OneNote file here and access it with several people via the desktop OneNote application. The syncing goes really smooth, event to the phone. If you have mobile internet on your phone, that ad is not a lie ;-)
