    Windows Live Skydrive

    Looking for someone who knows Skydrive.

    How do I dwonload 100+ powerpoints from Skydrive back to my computer.
    I know how to download one at a time.
    I need a " mass " download method.

    Thank you.

    P.S. Already posted to Windows Live Solution Center - Skydrive Threads forum.

    Maybe something like this will help, it used to be called skydrive explorer,

    it put's access to your skydrive right in windows explorer, not exactly

    what you asked for, just thought I'd mention it.

    Yeah, I got that too, I just scanned it with MSE and Malwarebytes, it's clean. It's your call though, I get that warning occaisionally with IE9.

    Have you tried putting all the files you want to download in one folder or zipped folder and just download that.

    I have IE 9 RC and with Avast Home Edition, plus " on demand " malarebytes and SpyBot S&D.

    No, I have not tried putting them into one folder and zipped it.

    I'll run the SD Explorer.exe and see what happens.

    Thank you.

    You're welcome, if you just want the one time download of these files, try the zipped folder first, skydrive explorer will sync files right in windows explorer, creating a restore point first, so you can just revert back if you decide you don't want it.

    System Restore Point - create

    RE : downloading pps from skydrive back to my computer via Zipped folder
    There were 229 items, 562 MB. Took forever, but successful.

    RE : SDExplorer
    A dumb question .....
    Ran the exe file and installed it without any issue.
    But what's next ?
    No idea how to use it.

    You should see a screen like this,

    Windows Live Skydrive-sdexplorer.jpg

    If you click on that (as long as you are logged in) you will see the folders in your skydrive right in explorer, like this,

    Windows Live Skydrive-capture.jpg

    Basically your skydrive is now accessible right in windows explorer and you don't need to actually visit skydrive, a convenience feature.
