When are Skydrive or Microsoft Drive as it will probably be called going to allow you to choose what specific folders to sync.

 

This is the only reason I don't actually use SkyDrive as my default choice of cloud storage service.

 

My system setup is

 

My main internal hard drive for all the operating system & files

External hard drive for all of my own personal files

 

If SkyDrive let me choose what folders to sync then I could actually work in the cloud properly

 

So I could for example sync

 

e:\mydocuments

e:\my pictures

 

etc

Is there anything else that gives you the option to sync the whole directory not just sub directories?

I know it's a work-around but I use SyncBackFree to sync specific folders to the Skydrive folder on me PC and then let the Skydrive app do all the uploading.

Skydrive allows you to choose what folders to sync during the initial setup. If your already have it setup then right click on the Skydrive icon in the system tray chosse settings/Folder tab/folder button and choose the folders you wish to sync.
