    Skydrive - First time using, suggestions

    First time user, having a few questions on how to setup skydrive. I have always used Drop Box in the past, but with windows 8.1 and my xbox one, I want to start using Skydrive. Few questions. How do most people set it up? Do you use your default My Documents folder for skydrive? Or do you create a separate folder just for skydrive stuff? What kind of things do you have in your skydrive folder? I would imagine many people would stick with just documents and pictures. Any other input or insight would be appreciated, as I said, never really used it before. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Jeffrey,

    SkyDrive has it's own group of folders in the navigation pane in File Explorer in Windows 8.1. The SkyDrive folder is actually located at "C:\Users\(user-name)\SkyDrive".

    It's really up to you for what you would like to have available "offline" or "online-only" though.

    If you like, here are some tutorials for SkyDrive to help get you more familiar with it. If you have any questions afterwards, then please feel free to ask.

    Hope this helps,

DIY or cheap VPN box - suggestions?
Hi, I am thinking of setting up a VPN at home. I have an older laptop that runs Vista and will use that as the battery will act like a UPS so it should stay running all the time, even through power outages. I have found three sets of software, Comodo Unite, OpenVPN and Hamachi, but they seem to...

Well shoot.... We've all found out that WMC in Windows 8 will be exactly as it is in the final release of Windows 8. This disappointed me because Windows Media Center had some serious potential as being something greater than it is. Which leads me to my post, I need suggestions and...
