Sharing with SkyDrive
sharing with skyDrive
service offered by Microsoft. You can use it to back up import-
ant files, you can access your files from any computer, and you
can let other users download specific documents or edit them in
a browser with Word Web App. To use SkyDrive, all you need is
a Microsoft Account.
You can use Microsoft SharePoint Workspace, which is included
in Office 2013 Professional Plus, to connect to a SharePoint
server and use the SharePoint folders and libraries as if they
were on local drives. In addition to facilitating coauthoring of
documents, SharePoint offers the ability to manage multiple
versions of documents, to set permissions for viewing and edit-
ing files, and to add property values that make searching easier.
If you need to use SharePoint Workspace, you will need instruc-
tions from your system administrator.
On the Account page of the Backstage view, in any Office 2013
program, you can connect your SkyDrive storage to Office. Your
SkyDrive folders will be offered in the Open and Save As pages
along with the folders on your computer.
