    8.1 RTM, skydrive, and file versions


    anyone been able to get file versions to work with skydrive? I've read that if your skydrive offline files are pointing inside a library that the file versions will be captured. With 8.1 RTM it appears to me that the offline file versions are by default included in the documents library but I am having no luck getting them captured.

    File versions is enabled and I can get other libraried files captured just not those from skydrive. Can anyone shine a light on this?
