The Windows 8 is the latest version of the operating system from Microsoft. Downloading Windows 8 is a simple process. All you have to do is run the upgrade assistant on your system and you will get to know whether your system is Windows 8 compatible or not. The Windows 8.1 is the latest update to the Windows 8 operating system and in the Windows 8.1 RTM, Microsoft has kept word to improve the built in modern apps. Also on the SkyDrive, two engineers who have been working on it have posted more details about the updates.
The default saving location for the SkyDrive app in Windows 8.1 RTM can be changed and such settings are completely missing in the preview of the operating system. This comes as a huge boost for users.
What the experts say?
The two members of the SkyDrive team Omar Shahine and Mona Akmal have explained in the AMA session on Reddit that SkyDrive in Windows 8.1 has the ability to have tons of more files on your machine from your SkyDrive than the amount of storage available. Only less than 5% was the amount of disk space people were using compared to the amount of data they had stored in SkyDrive.
In addition, it has been confirmed that the new Windows 8.1 build, which packs these improvements, is being tested now and this shows that the official launch of the RTM version is around the corner. This news is going to be a delight for Windows 8 users.
Change of location
The change of location of files was not incorporated in the preview version of Windows 8.1, but it is becoming a reality in the Windows 8.1 RTM. More features can be expected eventually as Microsoft is on the mission to improve SkyDrive on both Windows 8.1 as well as on the web. If users experience any trouble while downloading Windows 8, they can contact Microsoft support forum to resolve all their issues.
What else is new?
An updated GIF support backed by new sharing options and text editing features has been incorporated in the web client and it helps better management and sorting of files that are present in the cloud.
The two engineers have also announced that the users of SkyDrive are going to have a roller coaster experience and improvements in bug fixes will take place in order to please potential customers.
