What is SDExplorer
Looking for a fast and convenient way to work with your files stored using Microsoft's SkyDrive™ service?
You're on the right track!
SDExplorer is a free, easy-to-use, but very powerful extension for Windows Explorer. With SDExplorer you can perform all everyday operations with your documents on Microsoft Live SkyDrive™ using Windows Explorer, as if they were on your computer itself.
Moreover, you don't need to install and configure any additional programs or ActiveX components. SDExplorer will take care of communicating with the online storage all by itself.
Windows SkyDrive offers free online storage for your data, and SDExplorer is a simple and convenient way to use them!
Why do you need SDExplorer
- If you want to make your work with SkyDrive™ more efficient;
- If you do NOT want to have your online storage mirrored to your local drive;
- If you are still on Windows XP;
- If you want to play multimedia files right from SkyDrive™ without downloading file to your PC;
- If you are tired of the inconvenient and complex web interface for Microsoft Live SkyDrive™.
- If you want to work with your cloud storage files quickly;
- If you want the data on your SkyDrive™ account to always be at your fingertips.
Then you surely need SDExplorer!
SDExplorer is available in the following two editions:
Using the Base edition, you can perform all common operations on Microsoft's SkyDrive™ service. Most general functions with files and folders used by all users are available in SDExplorer Base.
If you're interested in less-common or unique features that are not available even from the SkyDrive web interface, you'll be sure to need this edition.
What is new in 3.5 Advanced?
Background Uploader Module
As the name says, it allows you to simply upload any selected file or folder to SkyDrive in the background, plus it automatically repeats uploading attempts if a connection error occurs.
Surely, the default drag & drop uploading method is still supported in SDExplorer, but for large amounts of data to upload we recommend using SDExplorer Background Uploader Module instead.
Thumbnail View Support
Thumbnails are very useful for managing your various photo files in SDExplorer without having to open each file to view the picture.
Schedule File Uploads to SkyDrive
Built-in scheduler allows you to manage upload speed based on time and day of week.
Small SDExplorer Tune Up Tool
It allows you to change some “hidden” parameters of the SDExplorer. There are some critical flags, so please only change this if you know what you're doing.
Improved Multilingual User Interface (MUI) support
The Setup application, Background Uploader Module, Tune Up Tool, program messages, menus and dialogs are fully translated on following languages: English, Japanese, German, French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Serbian and Polish.
