    SkyDrive and Windows 8.1


    I have a Windows Desktop which I recently updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1.

    This past weekend I purchased the new Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with Windows 8.1 preinstalled.

    In going through and setting up the Yoga 2, I noticed that there is no listing in "Programs and Features" for Microsoft SkyDrive, although there is such a listing in "Program and Features" on my Windows Desktop. Given the tight integration between Windows 8.1 and Skydrive (I'm using the same Microsoft Account on both systems), can / should I uninstall the Microsoft SkyDrive Application. Don't want to leave an application on either of the systems that has no useful purpose.

    Thanks.

    Hello Tomel,

    You can't uninstall SkyDrive in Windows 8.1, but you could disable SkyDrive integration if you like.

    Hope this helps,

We won’t be offering a way to sync between PCs without using the cloud as we’ve found that it adds complexity. Both technical complexity as well as, more importantly, complexity in the overall user model. The SkyDrive model is really quite simple in that it’s “cloud-first” and not “cloud-optional”...
