You can't, unless it is for e-mail attachments you are sending. From a Microsoft rep directly (via this forum which is available now only due to Google cache): there is a feature in Hotmail that allows the attachments that you’ll be sending, to be saved directly to your SkyDrive account. To enable this feature, please refer to the steps below: ...

When I go to http://devices.live.com/Devices/SkyDriveSyncedStorage, I see a listing of my synced folders. I have only synced one. Clicking on it takes me to https://devices.live.com/Sync/FolderSelf, which is a view of the folder's contents. Inside there is a PDF document. I click on it, and it opens. I think the confusion is with the naming, the 5GB ...

you can just generate share link via UI (for example: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=CA1656805C59C6C9!174&authkey=!ABYGECM1-9fSPG8), then replace "redir" for "download" (like this: https://skydrive.live.com/download?resid=CA1656805C59C6C9!174&authkey=!ABYGECM1-9fSPG8) and this will be direct download link.

Mark the little checkbox in the upper right-hand corner of the tile that represents the document in your SkyDrive. Click on Manage in the bar on the top, then click on Move to.

According to this April 2012 answer from Jeff Steinbok, the MS SkyDrive dev lead, file extensions are visible only for file types that SkyDrive doesn't internally support. Internally supported file types do not show extensions by default. Another answer to the same question suggested that users file a feature request. In summary, this feature isn't ...

You can't. SkyDrive does not yet have a feature to rotate photos. PS: After I wrote the above line, I checked the official SkyDrive Help & How To. They confirm what I wrote: You currently can't rotate photos using SkyDrive. If you have the SkyDrive app installed on your computer, you can open photos in your SkyDrive folder and rotate them in a ...

I know how this can be done through the web application through SkyDrive.com. It is actually quite straightforward. In red: the link that is visible on the left menu that allows you to see the files shared by you or with you. In blue: the files shared by you. In green: files shares by someone else with me. Note: certain SkyDrive features are released ...

Unfortunately, no, there's not currently a way to directly link to a PDF on SkyDrive. The closest you can get—using the built-in "Share" link—will instead open it in Office365's online Word viewer, for whatever reason. You can almost circumvent this by sharing the document, then, in the viewer, grabbing the URL that you ultimately download the ...

Seems like the Mail Migration add-on will do the trick (requires IE). Setup your existing email account with Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail or Windows Mail. Send/Receive to download your messages Sign-in to your Outlook.com in IE & run the tool. Just tested with a ~20MB attachment and all was good.

Your values are accurate. Your Outlook\Live\Hotmail messages and data are stored on Microsoft servers. Skydrive is a separate service that you have simply by having an Outlook.com account (not always do you have this, many people do). If you have Outlook locally installed on your computer there are ways to save mail on your hard drive, or in Windows 7 and 8 ...

You could use IFTTT (If This Then That) to do this. Create a filter in Hotmail which forwards mail with attachments or manually forward attachments to trigger@ifttt.com. Then use this recipe and connect to your Hotmail and Skydrive account.

I found this explanation You can't get exact direct link of this demo.zip , but the direct link for the photos, videos, etc. you can. Example: As we can see the complete link of your shorten link ( http://sdrv.ms/13mwN2v ) is https://skydrive.live.com/cid=328ba01b2a22de20&id=328BA01B2A22DE20%21219&authkey=!APtFM-r5ezVjuoc .

Actually, there is a "backdoor" method im using: First, share your SkyDrive/Google Drive folder on the local network, giving everyone "full control" (the SkyDrive/Google Drive folders are usually in C:\Users\[YOUR USE NAME HERE]\). Next, use the advanced NTFS permissions to clear all other's rights (ESPECIALLY "EVERYONE"!). Then, add your Windows ...

In short, because of how fragmented and unintegrated Microsoft's various sync and cloud services (not to mention how confusing the names are), this is not possible. The (misnamed) SkyDrive storage associated with Live Mesh does not at all integrated with SkyDrive. Moving files between the two would be a manual process. This is all explained at this ...

The only point of "integration" is a link to View Synced Folders within the SkyDrive that will show any folders ...

Whilst the question is specifically about Hotmail/SkyDrive, it may be worth noting that Google have now come up with a way of doing this with Gmail/Google Drive. All it seems to do, mind you, is help you share the document correctly with the people you're emailing to - it still doesn't actually attach it to the email from what I can see. Here's the ...

You can't do this. What you can do is share the document or file you would otherwise send as an attachment. Tick the checkbox next to the document filename Click the Share link on the sidebar From the Share dialog that pops up with various options, you can share directly with another person by emailing them. Or you can click Get a link and select one ...

They will accept any type of file. On my SkyDrive account I have MP4 files, ZIPs, RARs, Tar.gz's and all kind of archive, but it's for upload, for editing, just Office files and plain text. But the files needs to be -50MB in size. PS: I've stored all my podcast media there and I had no problem
