Think about all of the different devices you use every day. Wouldn’t it be nice if your files came with you, whether you’re on your phone, Mac, or PC?
When you use SkyDrive, you’ll never be without the documents, notes, photos, and videos that matter to you. Store anything on your SkyDrive and it’s automatically available from your trusted devices—no syncing or cables needed.
With SkyDrive, you can securely store your files and get to them from any of your devices, including your PC, phone, Mac, or iPad. You never have to worry about forgetting a file at home or work, because the latest versions are always automatically there for you. When you download SkyDrive on your PC or Mac, your desktop SkyDrive folder is automatically created. Any file or photo you put in this folder will be automatically synced to your other devices that have SkyDrive. Use your phone or tablet to get the files and photos you’ve saved to SkyDrive—just download the app for your device.
You get 7 GB of free storage with SkyDrive—that’s enough for over 20,000 Office documents or 7,000 photos. For most people, this is plenty of space. But if 7 GB isn’t enough, you can add even more storage for a low yearly fee.
With SkyDrive, you get automatic access to your documents from any PC, Mac, iPad, or phone. You can also share and work on them with other people from any computer. Anyone can view and edit documents using a web browser and free Office Web Apps.
SkyDrive is perfect for sharing and working together with other people. Just visit to share any file with whomever you choose. Your friends can use free Office Web Apps to view the document and make quick edits—even if they don’t have Office installed.
Office Web Apps are also designed to preserve your document’s formatting, which means your friends will be able to view the work you share just the way you intended. They’ll also be able to make changes without messing up how it looks.
