Sky Drive – All you need to know!!!

If you have a Windows Live account (or an old Hotmail account), then you have 25GB of free storage on SkyDrive. If you don’t have one, go and grap it. SkyDrive is a great way to store lots of files in the cloud for easy access remotely. Windows 7  and now defenetely on windows 8 will let you map your SkyDrive folders as network drives, making access even simpler.

How to map SkyDrive to your computer?

Windows 7 will let you map your SkyDrive to your local machine. How to do it? Here is the step

  • Sign in to your Windows Live account.
  • Get your ID from the address bar (Below showing how to get it)
    • Click on the “Files” as shown below

    • Look at the address bar and you will find your “CID” number just copy that number
  • Now go to your Windows 7 computer
  • Open My Computer, then select “Map network drive” near the top bar.
  • Select the drive letter you want, then type the following  under the “Folder bar”
  • \\\ and then copy your CID number here \
  • Check mark “Reconnect at logon”
  • Click Finish
  • Once you click finish, system will automatically attempt to log on to your SkyDrive.
  • Next system will show you to enter SkyDrive credential.
  • Enter the username and password and clik PK

Thats it..your SkyDrive is now mapped to your local machine.

Here you can rename the folder (If in case the language is not proper in you SkyDrive). What ever you do at the local “mapped” Skydrive, it will reflect in your SkyDrive as well.

Outlook 2010: Information Rights Management with Windows Live ID

On Outlook 2010, Information Rights Management is a free service from Microsoft which sets specific permissions on your sent emails.If you want to restrict your email from print, copy or forward your sent emails to someone else, then all you need to do is sign up for the Information Rights Management Service..out of the box and requirement is a windows Live ID.
When you open Outlook 2010 for new email, you will see the ribbon as below on the Option tab.

If you click this one, and in your organization, if you don’t have IRMS server, below screen will appear.

This is an initial screen to setup the IRMS with windows Live Id.
Then select “I want to sign up” and click next then select “I have Windows Live ID” and  click next (those who don’t have Windows Live ID, then they have to register one)..Then enter your Live Id and password…and select this computer as Private…then click “Accept” and then click “Finish”…now you are ready to restrict your email. This is a free service from Microsoft and this service will terminate, when ever they wish to do so…Enjoy!!!
For installing IRMS in your organization, there are useful links which i want to share with you all
