Windows 8 Tip of the Day: How to map a drive in Windows to a Skydrive folder or root.

1) Open a document in SkyDrive – such as an excel xls or word doc

2) File->Save As (Note folder – it will be something like https://d.docs.live.net/{your-id}/Documents

3) In Windows Explorer, click Map Network Drive and enter path

Note: I use https://d.docs.live.net/{your –id} as I have other files at one level higher than Documents.

 

Thanks to Tom Archer for this tidbit!

  1. I had this working in windows 8 on my Surface RT but this seems to be blocked now in 8.1.

    Try the same URL on my Windows 7 PC and it works fine – could they be blocking mapped drive connections from 8.1 Any ideas?
