Coming soon to SkyDrive

I’m generally happy with Windows Live SkyDrive (Microsoft’s “USB stick in the cloud”), but there’s a couple of features that have held it back for me. I’m glad to say that they appear to be getting added in the next update!

  • You’re going to have the ability to download an entire folder as a single zip file (this is easily my most-wanted feature)
  • Share files without requiring people to use a Windows Live ID
  • Move and copy between folders
  • Better photo handling: improved slideshow, download photos to Windows Live Photo Gallery

And they’re increasing the storage limit from 5 to 25Gb!

Good news, and that’s not all – you can read the full list on the SkyDrive Team Blog.
