SkyDrive Explorer is a free, easy-to-use, but very powerful extension for Windows Explorer. With SkyDrive Explorer you can make any every-day operations with your documents from Microsoft Live SkyDriveâ„¢ service (read more…) using Windows Explorer, as if they were on your computer.

Moreover you don’t need to install and configure any additional programs or ActiveX components. SkyDrive Explorer will organize the interaction with the online storage itself.



With the current version you can enjoy the following functionality:

View the structure and contents of folders in SkyDriveâ„¢;
View files information (type, size, creation date in GMT format);
Create new root folders and subfolders;
Copy files into the storage;
Delete files and folders;
Copy files from the storage to the computer;
Copy folders and subfolders from the storage to the computer keeping their structure;
Use Drag & Drop for files operations;
Rename files and folders;
Create links to SkyDriveâ„¢ folders on your computer;
Copy URL of the selected object(s) to the Clipboard;
Automatic check for the latest version;
Bidirectional languages support;
Selection of your preferred interface language.


SkyDrive Explorer allows applying some operations for group of objects that is not possible in web browser. This increases performance of work with SkyDriveâ„¢.

Examples of multi-operations are:

Renaming objects;
Deleting group of objects;
Copying folders with subfolders and files from SkyDriveâ„¢.


You don’t need to know how to work with the SkyDriveâ„¢ service in web browser. To work efficiently with your data in SkyDrive Explorer you just use base operations with files and folders in Windows Explorer.


SkyDrive Explorer uses the standard Microsoft library for work with Windows Live Id services. Your personal information does not leave this library and even is not passed to SkyDrive Explorer engine. Also, the traffic with online storage goes through HTTPS protocol that protects data from snoopers.


SkyDrive Explorer works both in 32- and 64-bit Microsoft® Windows OS. Minimal required OS is Windows XP, and SkyDrive Explorer will successfully work in Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and 2008, and Windows 7.
