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: Sign ...

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.

OneDrive personal and OneDrive for Business are completely different and you can't share folders between these accounts. You can only generate a link, but you will never see your shared folders in your OneDrive personal account or in your OneDrive for Business account. Just use only OneDrive for Business or only OneDrive personal otherwise it is not ...

I would avoid Google Apps for Business as your primary storage solution. When I was sourcing alternatives, Box.com was the only one that I felt would provide some benefit. In the end, I didn't see enough of an advantage to offset having to spend agonizing weeks migrating our files. Also, it is a lot more expensive; you get what you pay for. My advice is ...

Yes, they can view them. It's no problem for Office documents, which can be opened directly in SkyDrive (now OneDrive), or images you want to see. But you can't send a link to the file and download it. When you need to download them, you need to have a Live ID.

The following steps seem to have resolved the issue: Clear all IE browsing history. Stop syncing all SkyDrive Pro folders (move away current folders to avoid duplicate renamed folders) for the client in question. Close all your Office processes, such as groove.exe which is SkyDrive Pro,msouc.exe, msosync.exe, office library sync via Task manager. Browse to ...

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 ...

It is possible to set up an alias for your email address in the country code top level domain. The option is available somewhere in the mail settings.

I'll write this as an answer but I think it's best to delete the question after today because this is a temporary issue. (but not before the issue is resolved, otherwise we get new questions about this again.) When dealing with a problem in service it's best to Google if others have the same issue. You can enter the keywords outlook outage in Google and ...

It does not appear that Microsoft has a policy like that. I just tested it by uploading a Word document to my OneDrive account, and my used storage amount went up.

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 ...

Here is a workaround. Using the Search Field on the Onedrive page, search for the file extension to get a list of all files with that extension. EX: if you are looking for Photoshop files, enter: *.psd in the search field. While this doesn't necessarily help with all file management needs, it can help find file types until Microsoft decides to stop ...

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 to ...

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@recipe.ifttt.com. Then use this recipe and connect to your Hotmail and Skydrive account.

Microsoft recently launched a feature that allows you to easily migrate your Gmail account to Outlook.com (which I assume is what you mean since SkyDrive is the Microsoft equivalent of Google Drive). Here is the blog post annoucing this: http://blogs.office.com/2013/12/11/outlook-com-makes-it-even-easier-to-switch-from-gmail/ I use both services, but I ...

There doesn't seem to be any built in way, but I have a tool - DocTo that converts word documents to other formats. If you have Word 2010 or later installed, you can use the following commandline with the docto tool to convert all files in a folder on your disk, then once converted upload them to onedrive. "docto.exe" -f "c:\mydocs\" -o "C:\...

There are several ways including free and paid, but I will show you the free way. Google has announced new Google Photos that works with Google Drive, so you need to make sure that there is a Google Photos folder in your Google Drive.

Onedrive 1. Right click the file, for which you want to create download URL, then select share. 2. Then, click on 'Get a link'. 3. Under 'Choose an option' select 'Public'. Click on 'Create link'.

Note: This answer is with regards to the permissions on the local file itself. When I answered the question it was not clear to be they were talking about the permissions on the cloud copy of the file. Within the properties of the folder in question do the following: Click Security Click Advanced Click on the Principal you wish to change the permissions ...

The best course of action is to download OneDrive for Windows and sync it with your OneDrive. This way the files get downloaded one-by-one to your hard drive without being compressed into zips. Also if you need to download a large amount of data on an unstable network you can avoid possible corruption of files being compressed and downloaded as zip.

Assuming you're talking about the OneDrive website: Each file has a little checkbox in front of it (in details view) or in the top right corner of the thumbnail (in thumbnails view). Use that to select multiple files, then click "Download" in the top menu bar to download the selected files as a ZIP archive. Alternatively, you can also download an entire ...

When adding files you don't want synchronised to your hard drive make sure you put them in a folder you have chosen to exclude from the process. For example.

No, you cannot do it. Yes, very annoying. No idea why MS hasn't offered this feature. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/forum/sdfiles-sdsharing/onedrive-shared-folder-sync-to-desktop/f6e69fbc-ada4-4faf-9790-fd0604262f56
