Bringing the best of all SkyDrive experiences to Windows

Check out Adam Czeisler’s blog post from earlier today on Blogging Windows about our work in Windows 8.1 and some of the engineering backstory. You can hear more from Adam in the below video from a few weeks ago on smart files.

    My transition to Win 8.1 has been most disturbing, the most problematic since using Windows since Win 3.0. I do not have a reliable Internet connection, so SkyDrive has been a surprising and horrible experience. I have lost files trying to figure out what went wrong. I keep getting this error:

    An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.

    Error 0×80070490: Element not found.

    How do I remove SkyDrive from Win 8.1? I called Microsoft and nobody I spoke with had any clue about this problem (they all, obviously, have flawless Internet) or about my request.

    It is good&simple to use

  3. The title of the article says bringing the best of all SkyDrive experiences to Windows, but for those of us with local accounts, as I’m on a network domain through my office, we can no longer use SkyDrive in Windows 8.1 because of how it’s now tied to a Microsoft login account.

    It’s this one-size-fit’s-all mentality that started with Windows 8 that’s causing problems for people that want more freedom in how they use Microsoft software.

    Does anyone know if this latest evolution of skydrive now onedrive has sorted out the sync issues between computers. I had a terrible experience at the end of last year with skydrive pro. It would keep getting errors in the folders requiring me to recreate folders. I tried for 4 weeks and ended up buying dropbox corporate which has worked flawlessly since.

    Many people don’t want to log into their PC with an MSA. Instead they want to manage their own accounts and passwords on the computer and use a variety of services (like SkyDrive) on that computer with a variety of accounts. I have been talking with people on the MSA team and also in Windows about this. I’d like to understand the feedback better. Please let me know if you would like to use several MSA’s for different Microsoft services like Outlook.com, Microsoft Store, SkyDrive, or if you would be OK using a single MSA with those services but just want a different local account to login to the computer.

    My reply is:

    I would be OK using a single MSA with those services but just want a different local account to login to the computer.
