Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
After you save the file, run it and click “Yes” to continue. If you wish, you may download this ready-to-use registry file, which we had uploaded for use in our earlier post. It is the same thing and works fine on Windows 8 too.
Next, decide where you want to keep a synced copy of SkyDrive and bring up the context menu by right-clicking on the desktop. Move your mouse over to New -> Briefcase and give it a name. Then, drag and drop your SkyDrive directory (or its sub-directories) into the Briefcase to sync your files and folders.
Since the Briefcase won’t update automatically every time you need to update the copy of SkyDrive, you need to right-click the Briefcase and select “Update All” to sync the copy. You can then review the changes suggested and accept to update it!
