    Make SkyDrive Explorer Folder's files as Online-Only


    Hello everybody,

    I use SkyDrive quite every time. For each file, I copy to my Windows explorer folder of SkyDrive, I have to individually right click each file and select Make Available online only. I want the explorer to do this for each and every file I copy to the folder so that I don't need to waste time to do it all by myself.

    Looking forward to replies. Thank you!

    Hello Muammadian,

    You should be able to set the folder to "Make Available online only" to have the contents set that way as well by default.

    Hope this helps,
