SkyDrive Pro is an excellent web-based, enterprise ready, personal storage and collaboration tool for faculty, staff, and students. Unlike the consumer version of SkyDrive, SkyDrive Pro provides institutions with rich features to remain compliant. Technically, each SkyDrive Pro site created is its own site collection. The user who creates the site is provided independent ownership of their personal site. This user has full control to grant and remove user permissions to their site. In other words by default even administrators do not have access to a personal SkyDrive Pro site!
What's an Admin to do?
As I mentioned before SkyDrive Pro is enterprise ready. Office 365 Education administrators can access a users (i.e., student) SkyDrive Pro account to meet compliance requirements and for investigations.
If you are an administrator of Office 365 Education you can follow these steps:
At this point you can access the SkyDrive Pro site. Hope this helps!
