BETA: Introducing Windows Live SkyDrive!

[This is a repost of]

Introducing Windows Live SkyDrive!

Thanks for your help testing Windows Live Folders. It’s been a month and a half since our first release, and today we’re making three major announcements!

First, we’re happy to announce our new name:  Windows Live SkyDrive

Second, we’ve been listening intently to your feedback and suggestions, and based directly on that feedback, we’re excited to bring you our next release, featuring:

  • An upgraded look and feel — new graphics to go along with your new features!
  • "Also on SkyDrive" — easily get back to the SkyDrives you’ve recently visited
  • Thumbnail images — we heard you loud and clear, and now you can see thumbnails of your image files
  • Drag and drop your files — sick of our five-at-a-time upload limit? Drag and drop your files right onto your SkyDrive
  • Embed your stuff anywhere — with just a few clicks, post your files and folders anywhere you can post html

Third, we’re excited to introduce SkyDrive in two additional regions: UK and India.

Note for existing beta users: if you’ve sent or posted links using Windows Live Folders, you will need to update your links due to changes in our URLs with this release.

So without further ado, go sign up today! And then let us know how you like the changes.
