Build 60 was released to the Gladinet download page today, which completed a two-part effort (build 48/build 60) of integrating the new SkyDrive into Windows Explorer for beta 1.
SkyDrive is really cool, especially with 25G and features like publishing and sharing with friends. Currently there is no Windows Explorer integration from Microsoft so it is hard to migrate multi-gigabytes of content to SkyDrive. We like SkyDrive and we would like to help promoting the usage of it. We went ahead and did the value-add.
With Gladinet Cloud Desktop, beta build 60, you can do these things:
(1) Drag and drop multiple folders into SkyDrive.
(2) Grab a link in IE or Firefox and drop it directly into SkyDrive's Favorite folder. You can grab a folder full of bookmarks into the Favorite folder too.
(3) Go to a different PC, drag a folder out of SkyDrive and back it up to that PC.
(4) Support both Private folders and Public folders.
Build 60 is a SkyDrive/Amazon S3 focused release. If you are using Google Docs/Picasa, wait for the next release around the end of the month, which will have better support for Google Docs.
Hope the Gladinet Cloud Desktop does a better job for SkyDrive integration this time. Happy New Year 2009!
