OneDrive is the go-to app for many Windows users when it comes to cloud storage. It was integrated with the Office 365 package apart from being a standalone app which made it popular with users. Nonetheless, it has 7 GB of free storage on offer for the users which can go up to 25 GB as well. Once you have downloaded the SkyDrive package you are required to sign in with your Windows Live ID. However, if you don’t have such an ID yet, you can sign up to an ID right from the installation window. As soon as you sign in, the application creates a new folder in your computer.
There is an icon in the notification tray as well as the menu bar of your computer. There is no way in which you can remove the icon from the notification tray. The folder syncs all your files and folders directly with other devices on which you have the application installed. Therefore, you get instant cloud backup of all your files without fail. The fact is that SkyDrive is a very slick application and with a huge cloud backup that comes absolutely free as well as a great integration that works with Windows, iOS, Mac OS X and Android, you get a lot to explore. The Office 365 integration works equally fine.
