Around 2 months ago, we announced that we would no longer support mounting of SkyDrive folders as network drives, but would leave a possibility to work with them in SDExplorer.
We have recently decided to disable the module responsible for working with mounted drives by default.
Starting from version 126.96.36.199, SDExplorer will not officially support and work with mounted SkyDrive disks. This decision enabled us to boost the performance of the key features of SDExplorer and will allow us to add many more useful features in the future.
However, if you do need to work with mounted disks and you find the performance acceptable, you can enable this functionality using these instructions.
Please note that we assume no responsibility for the work of this program feature.
We are also glad to announce a new feature in SDExplorer Pro: you can now send your files and folders to SkyDrive with a single mouse click using the standard "Send To" command.
