“Microsoft is excited to announce that SkyDrive will become OneDrive – the one place for people to access and store their photos and videos.”
Sounds a little late and a little strange in one way and….. maybe everyone is wondering where to start putting your stuff …. ! Apple, Google, Amazon all offer similar offerings but ….. they don’t have SHAREPOINT.
For current users of either SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro the service will continue to operate as you expect and all of your content will be available on OneDrive and OneDrive for Business respectively as the new name is rolled out across the portfolio.
So for those that have a Cloud 365 account you already have a SkyDrive account. All you’ll have to do is connect the account to your exchange view on any PC and your connected to the document libraries everywhere you go. For those that don’t do this you might want to stop and think about how this can free you up from carrying around so much junk. For me as a consultant carrying tons of files and presentation everywhere I go this could be a tremendous relief. And in fact that is exactly what I do. For those that need support on how to connect follow this link to TECHNET and try it! All of my computers on client site and ones that I own and use have this Exchange connections so I always have access to my operating files and core business information.
