Here's a way to get your own little piece of the cloud for free. Microsoft is now offering 5GB of free online storage through Windows Live Skydrive. Are we sensing a little bit of the Christmas giving spirit?
We first saw the SkyDrive offer when we were reviewing the new face of Windows Live. Included as part of their new social features, SkyDrive provides you a virtual drive in the cloud to store and share your documents.If you need to travel a lot or work between home and the office, this feature may just interest you.
Creating Folders for StorageThere are three types of folders you can create on your SkyDrive:
- Personal: Create personal folders for content only you can access
- Shared: Share documents with your friends by creating a Shared folder
- Public: Create public folders that anyone on the internet can access
