Now that I’m all-in on the Surface-Office-SkyDrive solution, I need better access to SkyDrive from my PCs. No problem, there’s a SkyDrive desktop application. Get it here.
It’s everything you want and expect. Installation’s a breeze—just enter your credentials and pick a folder to sync to. Within seconds, the contents of my SkyDrive account was available locally. I can save to the folder, and it uploads automagically. (PS—I just learned that Word recognizes “automagically” as a correctly spelled word. Nice.)
There’s also an option to make any file on the computer available through SkyDrive. I didn’t enable it because I was surprised and got scared, but I might go back and check it out later.
