Have you went to your account and tried to turned off sync? That way you could choose what to upload and when. I don't know what the setting s are for sky drive, I use a different backup service, but you should go to your account dashboard and look for syncing choices. If that fails, maybe contact MS and ask them?

Repetitive sync

Hi Kristen,

It sounds as if SkyDrive is running at startup everytime you log onto your PC. What you can do, if on Windows 7, is click start, then type msconfig, you will then be presented with new window. Click the startup tab and ensure that SkyDrive is not enabled to start when system starts. If using windows 8, you can right click on the task bar, choose task manager, then click the startup tab and check the items there. Please visit my website at if you need any additional assistance.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I want to make my sky my home page

In Firefox Tools/Options then use the General Tab. There is an option that allows you to create the Home Page for your browser. If you have the Sky page open you can use the Button Use Current Page or just type it into the box and save it.

In Chrome use the settings option (direct link should be chrome://chrome/settings/) Then select Settings on the left. Under "On Startup" click the radio button for "Open a specific page or set of pages" and click on "Set Pages" and then add the URL you want to load on startup.

Internet Explorer. Use Tools/Internet Options then save the URL in Home Page box.

I have a cruzer micro 16Gb flash drive with 14.9Gb

Did you reformat as NTFS instead of the default FAT32? FAT32 can only transfer files up to 4.0Gb in size. If you reformat as NTFS, you can move larger files.
