    So I understand that SKYDRIVE makes it easy to access your documents or pictures from different devices. Can it be used, in essence, as a external hard-drive <per se> to back up your pictures and important documents? I'm not quite understanding how it works. I think it works like a dropbox, but wondered about using it for BACK-UP rather than purchasing an external drive?

    THANKS!

    Hi kemical, If I understand you, that if you had skydrive before April of this year, you have 25GB of space. Is that right? I have been using Skydrive for about three years. Just curious. 7GB would be plenty for me.

    I missed your post on it. That is good to here. Come to think about it I think I was offered a choice between the two.
