Microsoft Launches Standalone SkyDrive PRO for Windows

Microsoft announced the availability of SkyDrive Pro for Windows as a standalone application. Previously bundled with Office 2013, Office 365 Pro Plus and Office 365 Small Business Premium, the standalone version will permit users to sync SharePoint 2013, SharePoint SkyDrive Pro and Team Site document libraries with PCs. You need not have any version of Office installed for this app to work. It also works with SharePoint 10 and SharePoint Online in Office 365. The snag here is that it has a limit of 7GB whereas SharePoint Online permits 10 GB. It will work just as well when installed alongside Office 2007 and Office 2010.

The standalone app works on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012.

Setting it up is easy enough. Install it from the web and connect to your Microsoft account to start syncing. It can be configured as part of the Office 2013 suite or as a stand-alone app to sync documents library across your PC for offline access and use in non-Office apps.
