What is SkyDrive Pro? Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog explains!


  1. So Skydrive Pro is a different way of accessing the WebDAV interface that is already in your MySite in Sharepoint. I guess that makes sense – I have been using it for some time, but need to map a drive to do so easily, this would be a nice improvement.

  2. I agree with Jeremy. This feature would be a very nice improvement; i’m all about having a seamless experience with Office for a change.

  3. I am using SharePoint Online and SkyDrive Pro to sync documents. I would like to know if it is possible to rename the sharepoint folder that SkyDrive Pro creates by default when you sync a document library.Currently it sync my docs under the following location


    I need to get rid of the sharepoint name so that the path reads,


    Anyone done this before? please assist.

  4. Hi VasuDevG

    Thanks for the links you provided however my question remain unswered.

    Let me rephrase, I have synced my docs and they appear to be located on this path c:/users/username/sharepoint
    Note the sharepoint folder.

    It does not matter whether I change the location to be different from the default one, the ‘sharepoint’ folder still forms part of the path. I want to rename the sharepoint folder to a a different name.

    I dont have a problem saving anywhere on my machine but would like to see a more meaningful name on the physical location and not the generic ‘sharepoint’ folder forming part of my location.

    Hope this clarifies it better.
