Store your stuff in the clouds. You don't need to worry about freeing
memory for your favorites or new apps.
SkyDrive is cloud storage for all your documents and photos, so you can
access, share, or restore them if needed. You can also set it to back up
your stuff automatically, so when you take a photo or a video, it's copied
to your cloud album.
With SkyDrive, you can access your photos, documents, and more from
your phone, tablet, or computer. Depending on the app, you can even
continue working on a document right from where you left it earlier.
There are several places where you can access your stuff on SkyDrive.
You can save photos to SkyDrive in the Photos Hub, or manage your
office documents in the Office Hub.
