Last week I wrote a blogpost about Windows Live Folders Beta, now the team announced the new name "Windows Live SkyDrive" which is still in Beta. They have been listening to the feedback from the beta users and added a few new features:

  • An upgraded look and feel — new graphics to go along with your new features!
  • "Also on SkyDrive" — easily get back to the SkyDrives you’ve recently visited
  • Thumbnail images — we heard you loud and clear, and now you can see thumbnails of your image files
  • Drag and drop your files — sick of our five-at-a-time upload limit? Drag and drop your files right onto your SkyDrive
  • Embed your stuff anywhere — with just a few clicks, post your files and folders anywhere you can post html


Note for existing beta users: if you’ve sent or posted links using Windows Live Folders, you will need to update your links due to changes in our URLs with this release.

So without further ado, go sign up today
