Exclusive Premier Microsoft Review

SkyDrive in many ways has been the neglected child of Microsoft services. imageIt really wasn’t worth reviewing… until now…the new version of SkyDrive is every bit worth reviewing…

Packed with plenty of features, fast performance, and clear UI, Windows Live SkyDrive is the easiest and best file-sharing service available.

imageSkyDrive does a fantastic job in the photo department, preserving resolution and maintaining the original aspect ratio.


Pictures can be easily uploaded to SkyDrive with Microsoft’s proprietary Silverlight –powered uploaded, as shown below.


Simply drag and drop the pictures into the Uploader and SkyDrive takes care of the rest.


imagePictures display plenty of details for all you “micro-managers.” For instance, for the picture on the right, SkyDrive displays Date Modified, Date Taken, Path, Date Added, File Name, Dimensions, and Size. This detail plane can be scrolled to reveal more extras such as Comments and  Tagging which is displayed below.                                   


As far as files, creating documents is a snap; SkyDrive allows you to set the destination folder and set the Privacy Controls for that specific file( Note: If you send the file to a Folder, the Folder’s Privacy Controls will override the controls for the file itself.)


imageAll files can be easily edited on the fly with Microsoft Word Web App. This fast online utility can do some basic editing on all supported files. The Web App even includes powerful Picture Tools. Don’t expect the WebApp to replace Word… but it sure beats trying to frantically edit an online document and failing at it. With the Web Apps, documents can edited anywhere online; Microsoft has revamped its Web Apps to support file collaboration and simultaneous editing. The Web Apps can even show you who and when edited a section of your online document.

imageSecurity doesn’t fail in the least… all files are password protected. Like all Windows Live services, SkyDrive uses Unique IDs , Retype Password Prompts, and “You’ve Tried to Sign in Too many Times” prompts and imagenot but not least …. “Enter the Characters you See”( either Video or Audio)
