    Microsoft disavows workaround for SkyDrive problems on Win


    IDG News Service - Microsoft has backtracked on a suggested fix it offered repeatedly on its support forum for over two months for users having problems with SkyDrive on Windows 8.1.

    In a permanent message on the SkyDrive section of its support site, Microsoft now offers detailed troubleshooting steps for affected users.
    At the end of the post, it also disavows a workaround its officials had been dispensing that involved backing up SkyDrive, deleting its root folder and files and restarting the application. "If you've previously seen the instructions below on other posts, please DO NOT use them as they are no longer valid for SkyDrive on Windows 8.1," the post reads.

    Isn't SkyDrive integration supposed to be one of the "killer" features of W8/W8.1?

    This is an absolutely absurd headline.....

    dis·avow transitive verb \ˌdis-ə-ˈvau̇\
    : to say that you are not responsible for (something) : to deny that you know about or are involved in (something)

    Have to agree. I have written a couple of post here and on the sevenforums of why I just do not want or need the "Cloud Services" regardless of the tech compay that is running on. . .
