Question for Windows 8 support / backward sync

May 8, 2013 at 7:39 PM
Hi,

first of all, this is a fantastic product and a life saver.

I have run into a scenario where I needed help, I was using SkyShellEx on my Win7 PC and had couple of my daily required folders synced to my Skydrive account. Recently, my PC crashed and IT has given me a new Win8 Pro PC. I installed SkyShellEx again but I don't see an option of how to do the downstream sync for bringing these 2 folders from Skydrive down to my new PC' file system.

Let me know if this feasible and how i would need to go about it.

Appreciate the help, thanks!

Well. your synced folder are all in the SkyDrive root folder now, right? In order to get them integrated in your original folder structure, you need to create empty folder with the same name at the location where you want them. Now use SSX again to sync those empty folder. When SSX asks you whether you want them Side by Side or Merged. chose Merged. The folder will be then available at their original location.

thanks for the tip, I installed the skydrive app itself which took care of this. There was some issue with SSX, it would always show the option grayed out.
