    Help with Skydrive


    Hi,

    I was wondering how to map skydrive as a network drive in windows 8.

    I looked on the internet and found results for windows 7 - I don't know if these will work in windows 8.


    Please help!

    Hello Al,

    This should work the same way in Windows 8 as well.

    You can also login to https://skydrive.live.com and go to Get Apps
    Download and install the Desktop App.

    It should create a location similar to this C:\Users\8\SkyDrive
    You should be able to map that without issue.


    Hey Brink, I tried that WebDAV tool, and when I login, it says I have zero stuff out there
    Looks like that is a know issue according to many of the posts out there.

    I'd go with the app posted by Tepid then.
