Moving large files beyond the intranet (for access from home, external examiners etc.)

 

To start, go to http://skydrive.live.com: , or, if you have a Windows Live account, go through the menu of Windows Live or Hotmail:

“Sign in” with or “sign up” for your Windows Live account:

Create a new shared folder.

To give specific other users access to files: Click “Folder options”, and then click “Change permissions”. ”Click People I choose”, check box for each of your contacts that you want to add. Or add people who aren’t in your contact list, using their E-mail address (they will be invited and will have to sign up – send them a heads up to check their junk mail folder):

To link to a file (e.g. in an email), navigate to the folder or file, and on the right side of the page, use the "Web address" box as a link (for folders first click folder options):
