Need to Share Data – Here’s a Freebie from Microsoft

So we’ve had a couple of people want to send data across to help them look at methods and such, but they were limited by the amount of storage on dropbox or the security concerns of an outside source.

Here is a link to signup for Microsoft’s SkyDrive

https://signup.live.com/signup.aspx?wa=wsignin1.0&rpsnv=11&ct=1354299028&rver=6.2.6289.0&wp=MBI_SSL_SHARED&wreply=https%3a%2f%2fskydrive.live.com%2f&id=250206&cbcxt=sky&bk=1354299029&uiflavor=web&mkt=EN-US&lc=1033&lic=1

This gets you 7 Gigs of storage right off the bat. No money required. The beauty of this is that it can sync with all your MS Office applications, which you can share or keep to yourself.

It also works as a location on your desktop so you don’t have to ftp large files, simply drag and drop.

The really cool part about this is,  if I have a iPad or other mobile device and use the SkyDrive app, I can edit my stored documents real time in the cloud. I have access to them from anywhere at anytime, and anyone I have shared the document with can collaborate in real time.

For all those of you with large data sets this is a great spot to shared the files, and it works with your intergrated Windows security just as if it was a mapped drive.
