Snubs Report: 25 Gigs of Free Cloud Storage
I’m big about backups, specially online storage. I’m sure you remember my Wuala Snubs Report from a few weeks ago, right? And Hak5 uses Dropbox for sharing our videos with each of the crew.
So I decided to check out the Windows version called Windows Live Skydrive.
Features included are:
- 25 GB online storage
- Must sign up or already have a Windows Live account.
- Password protected with ability to choose who sees what-Protected, Shared, and Public folders.
Up to 30 folders.
- accessible from any web enabled device or computer, any OS.
- Drag and drop to upload to Skydrive.
Folders have unique web addresses, so you can save the link as a favorite or copy-and-paste it into e-mail or other documents for direct access. The nice thing is, if you already have a MSN login or a hotmail login, you can access Skydrive by using just that. There is no download needed and this is purely web-based.
Go to Skydrive.live.com and login with your Windows Live login. You can automatically access your folders and files.
Each folder has a permission level- Either you only, some friends, all friends, your friends and their contacts, or everyone (public).
If you want to share with your friends, they have to have a Windows live account. This is the part that is lame- you can’t share with your facebook friends, etc. They have to have Windows Live.
To add a file, go into a folder and choose ‘Add File’. From there you can drag and drop your files into Skydrive, they upload automatically, and then can be seen by whoever you have chosen.
When you click on a file, you can view the information about it- like the camera that took the photo, date and time, and it also creates a direct link to the photo for easy linking and emailing.
I don’t like Windows Live Skydrive as much as some others that I have tried specifically because you can only use it for Windows/Hotmail users and people in your Windows Live contact list.
This makes it a bad choice, in my opinion, for businesses or friends around the world… But perhaps it’s perfect for family members like Nana and Papa.
