Microsoft has updated SkyDrive, to make it look more like its Windows 8 app and integrated it into Outlook.com, the webmail replacement for Hotmail. It has the clean Metro-style look with tiles, and lots of solid colours.
It now features a search tool to make it easier to find files, a "contextual toolbar" with common commands depending on what type of file you’re working with, and new sorting options.
"We believe that your files are not just bits to be synced — and they're certainly not to be scanned to serve advertising," Microsoft said.
The Windows and OS X versions will update this week, while an Android app will arrive in a few weeks. Skydrive offers 7GB of data storage free.
