v6.40 (Windows) adds support for SkyDrive

Starting with version 6.40, the Windows version of Syncovery supports SkyDrive from Microsoft.

SkyDrive offers some free online storage, which has made it popular. You need to sign up for it with Microsoft under skydrive.live.com. If you already have a SkyDrive account, you can also see your files on that web site.

To sync with SkyDrive using Syncovery, please choose your local folders on the left-hand side, and click on the Internet button for the right-hand side. Then, choose SkyDrive as Internet Protocol and specify the folder where the data should be stored. You should also specify your SkyDrive username and password here.

Even though your data is uploaded via secure https with SSL, you may want to use zipping and encryption for your files. To keep a constantly updated mirror of your data, we recommend using the option “Zip Each File Individually”.

With SkyDrive, the “Last Modified” and “Created” timestamps of files can be preserved, so Filename Encoding is not necessary.

Additional cloud services will be added in the near future. Feel free to send your suggestions to info@syncovery.com!
