What is SkyDrive?

SkyDrive is a feature within Eagle Mail/Office 365 that provides an alternative to your Jupiter account for
personal data storage.  SkyDrive provides an easy to use web based approach to upload/download
your personal data FTPing files like in the past.  You also gain more personal data storage
space of 7GB.  This ability alone is key to today's demanding workloads that require larger file sizes and
more of them saved in an area that is easy to access anywhere you are.

SkyDrive also has "Microsoft Office" components like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote built right in.  This means
that you don't have to own a copy of Microsoft Office or any components of the suite in order to create, edit, or view these
files.  If you need to create a Word document you can do so just by selecting 'Word' from within your SkyDrive and giving
it a file's that easy.

The overall experience of using or accessing your SkyDrive account may differ in some scenarios depending on the browser
that you’re using. For the best experience, you should update your browser to the latest version and make sure Microsoft Silverlight
is installed and running for browsers that support it. Silverlight is required for some SkyDrive functionality.

** Please ensure that you’re using a supported browser for your computer, as explained below:

Microsoft Windows

     A.) Windows 7, 8, Vista, and Windows XP SP2 or higher:

  • Internet Explorer 8, 9, 10
  • Google Chrome 23+ 
  • Mozilla Firefox 17+

     B.) Older versions of Windows:

  •  Use a mail client (e.g. Outlook, Windows Live Mail)

 Apple Mac OS

  • Safari 5.1+
  • Google Chrome 23+
  • Mozilla Firefox 17+

     B.) Mac OS X below 10.6:

  •   Use a mail client


  • SkyDrive provides a location for storing your files online, but it's not an FTP site, nor does it function
    with an FTP client.

  • Trouble logging into SkyDrive AND you were admitted on or after September 07, 2013?  The reason for this is that
    an account was not automatically created & sync'd with Microsoft due to their recent changes to SkyDrive.
    Therefore, you will need to create your own personal SkyDrive account.
