"Unable to log on to it with Outlook.com email address."

November 21, 2014  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: syncDriver for OneDrive 2.0

Pros

None at all for me.

Cons

Although it is called syncDriver for OneDrive, it starts with a log in box headed "Connecting to SkyDrive", and when I enter my Outlook.com email address it gives an Error message, "Unable to connect the SkyDrive service". So I can not use it.

Summary

15 GB OneDrive storage came free with the Outlook.com email I signed up for in July 2014, but I had totally given up on it. Its desktop app can not be installed on XP. It opens on icons view by default, this can be changed to list view but there is no way to keep list view as the default. There aren't really any user options at all. It does not upload folders (or empty files), you have to first create the folder and subfolders on OneDrive and then upload each file individually to it, which is painstakingly involved and slow. You can't simply view your uploaded files, you have to right-click, select Download, and then Open. Therefore when I found syncDriver for OneDrive I thought it would be the answer to my prayer. Sadly it has proved not to be.

"Great tool to use with SkyDrive."

July 09, 2013  |  By cokool0087

 |  Version: syncDriver for SkyDrive 1.1

Pros

Fast syncing.

Cons

Only 7GB of free space. But I've recently discovered a similar cloud storage tool with much more space. It's called "Copy" and offers 20 GB of free space if you sign up using the referral link below: https://copy.com?r=rrCIWT

"Great for those still on WinXP!"

June 11, 2013  |  By andyv74

 |  Version: syncDriver for SkyDrive 1.1

Pros

Since the official desktop software doesn't support WinXP, this is a great alternative. Works seamlessly, syncs perfectly. Easy to install and setup. Easily comparable to something like Google Drive desktop software.

Cons

Couple of changes I'd make to the interface and the way the tray icon functions, but that's personal preference and probably because I'm used to Dropbox! No 'real' cons.

Summary

If you don't have Windows Vista/7/8 and can't run the 'official' software, this is a fantastic alternative.

"Much better than Dropbox or any other cloud storage"

April 13, 2013  |  By BDAndy

 |  Version: syncDriver for SkyDrive 1.1

Pros

More free space than any others (7GB)
Is easier to sync than Dropbox
Works with XP Pro 32 Bit and syncs perfectly with my Win 7 Pro 64 Bit and Win 8 Pro 64 Bit machines running Skydrive.
Didn't get any spyware or malware downloaded with Syncdriver as claimed by one. His machine must be infected to start with.

Cons

Would like more free storage but understand that could break the bank.

Summary

Best cloud storage when used with Skydrive

"Total Scam"

April 04, 2013  |  By surfprivately

 |  Version: syncDriver for SkyDrive 1.1

Pros

none - couldn't even use the program

Cons

after unchecking the boxes for VALUEADDED software to be included in the install, effectively declining all of the useless and harmful spam/toolbar software they want to install, it still installed them. I spent the next 2 hours making sure that everything was removed making sure that no spyware/games/trackers were present. Horrible! Don't do it!

Summary

CNET is no longer a reputable or safe place to download software. All of their installation packages default to installing rubbish toolbars and what they call "valueadded" programs. The average user (now even more experienced users) will undoubtedly find software you DID NOT WANT after installing anything from CNET.

"Way better than Microsoft Skydrive!"

December 19, 2012  |  By nathanielbergeron

 |  Version: syncDriver for SkyDrive 1.0

Pros

- Ultra lightweight, low processor use even on big syncs
- Microsoft office doesn't use office uploader anymore!

Cons

- Can't remote in and get files off computer like Microsoft skydrive app (although I tried that and it didn't work for me anyways, not much of a con)

Summary

This is a clean ultra lightweight way to sync a folder on your PC with your skydrive account. It works on Windows XP which is a big plus for those (Microsoft SkyDrive doesn't).
One of my favorite things is that Microsoft office doesn't see the skydrive folder as an actual Skydrive connection.
(When using Microsoft Skydrive app, whenever you open a office file in the skydrive folder it would actually go online and download it and upload it again every single time you save because it sees the file as a "Skydrive" file. Plus it open the office upload tool in your tray. More junk.)
Using this program Microsoft Office sees all the files as local files and behaves normally, allowing the syncing to happen seamlessly in the background, which is the whole point of syncing anyways!
Use this instead of the Microsoft app, I 100% recommend it!
