How to use SkyDrive as local HardDisk Drive

Many of my friends asked me how they can use the SkyDrive as their local HDD or we can say an Mapped Network Drive so here’s my post for all my friends describing how you can do it and believe me any one can do this all you need is 4 to 5 Mins of your valuable time. (But this will save your lot of time in future)

“Gladinet Cloud Desktop” is the software which you can use to achieve this goal the “Starter Edition” of this software is provided for free or you can choose “Professional Edition” for just $39.99 and the thing is you can use the same software to take the backup of your GoogleDocs or to manage your photos on Picasa you can download the software from the given link

How to use it ?

When you complete the software installation it creates a new Drive on computer you can find it from MyComputer by default the Drive Letter will be “Z:” if you are using Windows 7 it will look like one in following image


To use your SkyDrive or any other online storage with this application Open this drive by default this drive contains a file named “Click to mount [cloud storage]” Double Click on the file and open it it will ask you for some info in first step you need to provide the name of search provider select “Windows Live SkyDrive” the box just bellow it will ask you for the name this is the name which will appear on folder where the storage will be mounted on next step it will ask you for your live username (Email ID) and password in Third step you just need to click on the Finish button and the software will do rest of the things for you now after this when ever you want to copy some data to your online storage or need to copy some data from it it will be as simple as COPY PASTE operation which we use everyday 🙂

    It’s a nice article. Though it’a great idea to store data on cloud storage, I dont think that it would get a huge response, at it requires a $39.99 software for implementation. Ya, people in other countries might give it a try, but i dont think Indians are ready for it, unless and until it’s for free, coz mostly Indians rely on physical disks attached to their computers.
    Anyways, for a great contribution in expanding technology knowledge, I wish u gud luck my friend.
    Gud Day…

    Starter Edition of this software is Provided Free of Cost 🙂
    Cloud storage is the best solution when you need to share something with many peoples you just need to upload it and pass the link to everyone instead of passing the same file to everyone
