Hello. I am looking for a way to share a sky-drive folder with multiple people. I have a team of 3 people that need to share documents back and forth and we don't have SharePoint yet. Is there a way to allow multiple users that want to use the desktop client so they can drop file in easier than uploading them from the website to all use a common folder? So far all I can find is sharing the folder is only accessible from the website and not the desktop app. Some files are bigger than 300mb as they are database files so using the website is out of the question.
Any help on this would be appreciated.

SkyDrive has 25G storage for free. You can set the permission of share folder on SkyDrive. By the way, Windows 8 has skydrive app on Start menu for use.
Furthermore, set up FTP on your machine maybe another option:
Hope that helps.

Sorry Leo, I have been out of town the last few days working at one of our remote campuses.
So its possible to use a FTP client and connect to the shared folder? That might actually work for the team members to connect to the same folder. Ill admit its a little cumbersome but I guess until Microsoft realizes there is a need for a single skydrive folder that can be accessed from multiple people without always going through the website this will have to do.
Ill look into it as soon as I can. Thanks for the help.
