What is SDExplorer?
Looking for a fast and convenient way to work with your files stored using Microsoft's SkyDrive™ service?
You're on the right track!
SDExplorer is a free, easy-to-use, but very powerful extension for Windows Explorer. With SDExplorer you can perform all everyday operations with your documents on Microsoft Live SkyDrive™ using Windows Explorer, as if they were on your computer itself.
Moreover, you don't need to install and configure any additional programs or ActiveX components. SDExplorer will take care of communicating with the online storage all by itself.
Windows SkyDrive offers 25 GB of free online storage for your data, and SDExplorer is a simple and convenient way to use them!
Why do you need SDExplorer
  • If you want to make your work with SkyDrive™ more efficient;
  • If you are tired of the inconvenient and complex web interface for Microsoft Live SkyDrive™.
  • If you want to work with your cloud storage files quickly;
  • If you want the data on your SkyDrive™ account to always be at your fingertips.
Available Editions
SDExplorer is available in the following two editions:
  1. Base
    Using the Base edition, you can perform all common operations on Microsoft's SkyDrive™ service. Most general functions with files and folders used by all users are available in SDExplorer Base.
  2. Advanced
    If you're interested in less-common or unique features that are not available even from the SkyDrive web interface, you'll be sure to need this edition.


SDExplorer allows bulk operations with files and folders. Such functionality is not available through a web browser. This increases the speed with which you can work on SkyDrive™.
Examples of bulk operations are:

  • Renaming objects;
  • Deleting objects;
  • Copying folders with files and subfolders;
  • Changing folder share types.

SkyDrive looks like a nice service, I never have used it before and really don't have a need to use it.
25 GB of free online storage is a lot for a free service because I'm sure some users will benefit from using it.
