    SkyDrive (officially Microsoft SkyDrive, formerly Windows Live SkyDrive) is a file hosting service that allows users to upload and sync files to a cloud storage and then access them from a Web browser or their local device. It is part of the Windows Live range of online services and allows users to keep the files private, share them with contacts, or make the files public. Publicly-shared files do not require a Windows Live ID to access.
    The service offers 7 GB of free personal storage for new users. Additional storage is available for purchase. The service is built using HTML5technologies, and files up to 300 MB can be uploaded via drag and drop into the web browser, or up to 2 GB via the SkyDrive desktop application for Windows and Mac OS X.

    sky drive is an online storage application and file sharing device used to store the
    data.it provides 25gb free storage space to the consumer. but to use this application
    you need to sign in into the Microsoft os.

    The uses of skydrive are
    *it securely store your files and makes them available on any of your devices.
    *it has physical and electronic security measures
    *it creates multiple copies of your files and saves it on different servers to help protect your data
    from hardware failure

    to use this application first you have to go to the skydrive website and create a account,
    then you have to log in and create a folders you want to use using new tab.after you have created
    a folders then you have to link your computer with your online id so that it can access your computer
    without asking credentials everytime.

    so to link your computer go to the start menu then click on control panel then
    on click on user accounts and family safety then again click on user account and
    finally click on link online ids.

    so before doing all this you have to install windows live id provider on your pc.
    then click on online id and sign in into the windows live id provider and finally
    you can link your computer,

    thanks

    Sky drive is like a pendrive.
    You can store files in your drive by logging in.
    If you need those files then you can get it from anywhere in the world.
    The files you uploaded will be in a cloud based server.
    You can go to a computer center or any computer attached to internet and get your files,
    Upto 7GB it is free of cost.
    And if you need additional drive space then you need to pay for them or simply create another account.
