Share your photos and documents between your devices

With SkyDrive, you can easily access your photos, documents, and other stuff you have uploaded from any of your devices.

To upload your photos, documents, or other stuff saved on your phone, tablet, or computer to SkyDrive, you need to sign in to your Microsoft account. To access the uploaded content on another device, you need to sign in to the same Microsoft account that was used when uploading the content.

To upload or download content, you need an internet connection. If you don't have a data plan, the data transmission costs may pile up quickly. For info about possible data costs, contact your network service provider.

There are several places where you can access your stuff on SkyDrive. On your phone, you can check your photos and videos in the Pictures hub, or open your Office documents in the Office hub. You can also download the SkyDrive app from Marketplace to see and manage all types of files on your phone.

On your tablet or computer, you can either manage your stuff online at, or you can use the SkyDrive app and access SkyDrive straight from your desktop. If you don't yet have the SkyDrive app, you can download and install it from

With the SkyDrive app, you can simply drag and drop the files you want to upload to the SkyDrive folder in the file manager, such as Windows Explorer or Finder, and the files are automatically uploaded to SkyDrive.
