Microsoft's SkyDrive storage service gets a facelift

    Hooray, I missed this somehow, but Microsoft updated Skydrive and it's now got a recycle bin to protect against those accidental mistakes.

    And i just noticed too that SkyDrive added a selective folder sync option too. Missed this when they added it. Noticed today when I logged into the website that they mentioned it.

    Well I just hate the way they designed the use of the Skydrive plugin for Windows Explorer. I still use Skydrive and since I was using an old account and since I took action a few months ago, I retained all 25 GBs of free storage.

    I hate the way that Skydrive would automatically download copies of the files stored in your Skydrive web storage to your hard drive in your computer so that they would be synced from there even if they have a selective folder sync option.

    My explanation to how I think Skydrive should be designed in on my post on the previous page of this thread.

    I only use Skydrive via a web browser, log on to my account and upload files to my web storage from there.
