As many of you probably know, the skydrive web interface has a pretty small max file size for uploads. I just found out that if you use the desktop app, you can actually drag and drop files up to 2GB. Since I am constantly sharing video files for work (self made), this is HUGE for me - and so I thought I would share.

The only downside is that the desktop app seems to sync painfully slow :( It also, sometimes, won't recognize that your desktop skydrive folder has been updated so falsely assumes that everything is up to date... sometimes you have to close and reopen the desktop app itself to be able to get it to see changes and start uploading.

Strange thing is, usually when this would happen, all my folders would show green checks on them but if I went into the folder where I knew I uploaded a file, the file itself would be marked with the sync icon, the folder would be marked incorrectly with the green check, and skydrive would report up to date. Searching the problem online informed me that I'm definitely not the only one - I just kind of assumed it was the way the app worked, actually (i.e. Say it only checks for updates every 30 - 60 minutes... of course you wouldn't normally notice it, but you would if you had to leave the house right after saving a file and want to make sure it uploaded so you can have it where you're going)
Syncing is slow for some people. A couple threads with others having the "painfully slow" speed (i.e. One person taking 20 mins to upload a 67 mb file):
