  1. Hey, it is really great piece of information. It means one can use Skydrive 25GB like another memory device on computer and share those documents and files to whole world. Thanks Nirmal for sharing it, going to use it just now.

  2. SkyDrive Explorer Home Page : http://skydriveexplorer.com/

    Hum, I love nirmaltv.com, but this site is one of the very very few that never shows a software’s homepage link, but only the link to download the application. Sir : most responsible users wish to know more about the software’s homepage before downloading its application…

  3. @Transcontinental,
    I guess you have got it wrong, all the posts have software home page, please check the posts.

  4. I would recommend Gladinet (http://www.gladinet.com) too. it can map SkyDrive, Google Docs, Google Picasa, Amazon S3, Box.net, FTP/Webdav and more as virtual network drive.

    I have been using Gladinet for 6 months now. It is good and it is out of beta.
