    Just a heads up: The SkyDrive team have now added what was possible the number one missing feature to SkyDrive - the ability to sync only a certain subset of your folders, determined PC by PC. Sadly it doesn't look like they've added arbitrary folder syncing back yet Sad (so far as I can tell the "share" option will simply replicate the folder)

    Keep up the good work SkyDrive team!

    So you still can't just pick ANY folder on your computer to sync with Skydrive though?

    I hate having to put everything in one Skydrive folder so that it syncs with Skydrive. That's not how I want to organize MY STUFF.

    I hope with Sinofsky gone they'll bring back being able to sign-in with an account other that the one you're logged into W8 with.

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.

    Yay!   I totally missed the original Mesh, and this makes the Skydrive application actually useful for me!

    Horary, a feature that we are all looking for.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Awesome.  It was a bit shady having personal documents and such syncing with my work machine just so I could use skydrive as a way to share files between machines.

    Awesome! Now I don't need to have my 25GB of photos on every single one of my machines.

    I'm not pleased that only pictures can be selected for Skydrive or for email attachments on W7P.

    I'd like to send up a .pdf attachment I got in an email, but that's not happening, is it?

    Need a smarter phone, what's W8P offer this way? Just pics? Tongue Out

    @JohnAskew: Office documents can be uploaded to SkyDrive via the office app,

    The official SkyDrive app can, I think, sync other file types (I can't check right now as I don't have a data connection atm).


    I do agree with you that it's annoying you can't add other file types to emails, though and I lament WP's lack of a proper file browser...
