Want To Share Files Online For Free? This Tutorial Will Explain How It Can Be Easily Done With Windows Live SkyDrive.
Windows Live SkyDrive is a free cloud storage option with a difference. With 25GB of storage space, SkyDrive has become one of the top competitors in online storage, integrating with other Microsoft Windows Live services like Hotmail and Photo Gallery for easier use and access.
But the major difference between SkyDrive and other free storage services, such as iDrive, is the range of file sharing options available. While services like Dropbox are popular for their storage and sharing options, they are not as convenient as SkyDrive simply because so many people already use Windows Live services as part of everyday life.
Once people have signed into their Windows Live account, the simply need to register for the SkyDrive service to make use of the free storage and sharing options. Users can share files, documents, and photos by:
- Sending email links to people
- Posting a link on a social networking service like Facebook or Twitter
- Creating groups to regularly share files with the same people
SkyDrive also makes sharing photos a lot quicker and easier. People using SkyDrive to send large collections of photos through Windows Live Hotmail, will get the advantage of having SkyDrive automatically create an album for email recipients to view online.
These options make file sharing and collaboration much easier across the internet. There are also file storage options to keep some things private and others shared, so people can use SkyDrive for a range of personal and shared information without worrying about privacy as much. When it comes to storage and free online sharing, Skydrive is at the top of the game.
