Microsoft finally renamed Windows Live Folders As Windows Live SkyDrive

Today sees the somewhat expected renaming of Windows Live Folders to its final name, Windows Live Skydrive. There is also a significant update to the service, extending the basic functionality that was criticised somewhat at the start of the initial beta. New features include:

  • Drag and drop file upload, making it easy to upload multiple files. Previously you were limited to manually selecting 5 files at a time, which made uploading a time consuming process.
  • Navigational controls to move quickly beween files
  • A “recently viewed” section showing other users’ Skydrive folders you have browsed
  • Thumbnails view, already announced by the Skydrive team a few weeks ago.
  • The new Windows Live Wave 2 UI
  • The ability to embed files in a blog post or web page, allowing users to download them from your Skydrive.

The update is now out, check it out at http://skydrive.live.com/ and let us know what you think. Good news for those in the UK and Indian, you can now use the service. There is also a new team blog.
