Synopsis
This tutorial will show you how to choose folders in your SkyDrive folder, kept on your Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 PC by the OneDrive desktop app, that you want to keep in sync with your online OneDrive.
How to Choose Folders to Sync on your PC with OneDrive Desktop App

information   Information
SkyDrive is cloud storage where you can view and browse the files you saved online to SkyDrive.com. New users can get 7 GB of storage for free, while existing users can upgrade to 25 GB for a limited time for free.

When you install and setup the SkyDrive desktop app on a Windows PC, a copy of your SkyDrive is downloaded to your PC and put in the "SkyDrive" folder. This folder is kept in sync with your online SkyDrive. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder on SkyDrive.com, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted in your SkyDrive folder on your PC and vice versa. You could also fetch files (if turned on) on your PC from any computer on SkyDrive.com


This tutorial will show you how to choose folders in your SkyDrive folder, kept on your Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 PC by the SkyDrive desktop app, that you want to keep in sync with your online SkyDrive.

Note   Note
If you uncheck a folder to no longer have it sync from your SkyDrive to this PC, then the folder will no longer be in your SkyDrive folder on your PC.


EXAMPLE: SkyDrive Folder

Here's How:

1. Sign in to your user account on the Windows PC that you want to do this with.

2. Right click on the SkyDrive icon SkyDrive_signed-in.jpg in the taskbar notification area, and click on Settings. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: If you do not have Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar checked, then click on the Show hidden icons arrow in the notification area to see if the SkyDrive icon may be hidden there.

While in signed in the SkyDrive Store app, open the Pictures folder.

Right click on an empty area, or swipe up from the bottom if on a touch screen.

Click/tap on the Upload button at the bottom.

Navigate to and select the picture you want to upload into the Pictures folder on SkyDrive, then click/tap on Add to SkyDrive button.

After a moment as it is uploaded, it will be added to your SkyDrive. :)
