      this is why I uninstalled the SkyDrive client. This sucks so much. Dropbox has the Selective Sync feature which allows you to select which files you don't want to download:

      I have 1 question which is a bit related to the SkyDrive app. It installs 3 new ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers and because of this I lost other icons. Will this small limit ever be increased? I'm tired of reporting this over and over again. It impact user experience a lot.

      The search sucks, use better tools like http://www.voidtools.com/

      Yes! I'm with you Larry. I've been a big fan of pens and Tablet PCs for years. Smiley

      But my 4+ year old Toshiba just keeps on ticking. I may have to put it out to pasture so I can get the x230-T.
