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 ...

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 ...

No. You can only change permissions to a file or folder.

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 ...

If you login at https://onedrive.live.com then click the menu button, you will see the amount of used storage at the bottom of the menu.

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.

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. Here are some steps (note that this is using Outlook online): Log in to your Hotmail/Windows Live account. Click on the gear icon on the top right hand corner and select "More mail settings" In the Options ...

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. You'll now be given the option to select the target location for your file. Alternatively, SkyDrive also supports Drag & Drop to achieve move operations:

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

If you mean to un-share a note book that you are sharing with another person, here`s how: Hit the File tab. Click Share, from the drop down column. Go to, Invite people. You should then see a list of the people who you are sharing with on the right. From there, Right click the appropriate person and you will get the option to remove or define permissions.

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.

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 of ...

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. 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 ...

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.

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:\...

Go to File → Share → Share with people Click on the three dots next to Send Link Click on Mange Access You should see a list of people you have shared this notebook with and you can manage them from here

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. Head to www.multcloud.com and register an account. Confirm the accounts and start linking your cloud services Click Transfer ...

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'. Now, you will be given a link. Use that to create direct link. Source: http://www.syncwithtech.org/2014/09/direct-download-link.html

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 ...

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.
