SkyDrive Pro client for Windows now available

We are pleased to announce that the SkyDrive Pro sync client is now available for Windows and can be downloaded here. This standalone client allows users of SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online in Office 365 to sync their personal SkyDrive Pro and any SharePoint 2013 or Office 365 team site document libraries to their local machine for access to important content on and offline. The SkyDrive Pro client can be installed standalone and does not require any version of Office to be installed.  It can also be installed side-by-side with previous versions of Office (Office 2010, Office 2007).

Please note if you have one of the following versions of Office 2013 installed, then you already have the SkyDrive Pro sync client and do not need to install it separately:

  • Office 365 Pro Plus
  • Office 365 Small Business Premium
  • Office Professional Plus 2013

Once installed, simply click SYNC in the top right corner of your SkyDrive Pro library, SharePoint 2013 or Office 365 team site document library and you’ll be on your way to keep your files in sync across your machines. Happy syncing with SkyDrive Pro–cloud storage for employees!

  3. Welcome news, enough for me to finally give a try to skydrive pro for-work related stuff.

    Now, held back once again after my first try.
    Why? Because of unsupported file names (such as those starting with a dot, or having ~ character) and file types (such as exe files).

    That is Skydrive Pro still needs work to reach Skydrive functionality, so there I go back to the regular non-pro again, which is a pitty because the ability to share libraries in the Pro is one of the things I miss the most from Mesh.

    Hope you can get this right soon, as you did with the regular Skydrive in the past (I had the same problem with it during the first weeks of availability).

  4. What is the difference between Skydrive Pro and dropbox.com?

  5. Good news!
    This will surely improve the users experience with SharePoint and how they can collaborate.
    Now we just need a better way of working with shared folders. I would love a new tap to the personal page that shows all shared folders that other users have shared with me.

    That said I need to say that this news is indeed good news and one more step towards a better cloud SharePoint place.

  6. I have MySites, 0365 and Dropbox (IT hates me) and wanted to keep specific folders in sync. I gave this app I just found a whirl. So far seems to work pretty good. Called SkySync

  7. Will this conflict with my existing SkyDrive client? (I.e. The SkyDrive for non-enterprise folks?)
