As some of you might have noticed this project has not been active for more than a year. Due to high workload, I can no longer maintain the code base. This project is dependent on an unofficial SkyDrive API on Codeplex, which means every time the API is updated,
I have to be update my project too. Furthermore Microsoft announced the release of the SkyDrive API at the Build conference in September 2011. Windows 8 is likely to be loosely integrated with SkyDrive storage and Live ID. Given those announcements SkyDrive
Sync would have to be partially re-written.
I would be more than happy to hand over the maintenance duties to someone who has time up their sleeve to look after the project.
SkyDrive Synchronizer is a C# command line application that helps users synchronize a local folder to a specific location on their SkyDrive. The aim is to also make it usable on Linux via Mono.
The code is still under development; some features are still missing.
How to get started
To launch the application make sure you type in the correct information in the ConsoleApplication1.exe.config. That would include your user name and password, the source folder containing your files to Synchronize, your SkyDrive destination folder and the timeout.

- Split larger files into smaller ones for easier transfer and to store files larger than 50mb
To run the application on Linux, make sure you have Mono version 2.6.1 or later installed.
Download the application,
update the config file
and run the executable by typing mono API.WindowsLive.SkyDrive.exe. It is as simple as that.

This application is using the SkyDrive .Net API
libraries. Those APIs heavily depend on the SkyDrive web interface. If Microsoft changes the web interface, it could potentially break the APIs (partially or
entirely) making this application behave abnormally.
We undertake no responsibility for any loss that may result from the use of this application. SkyDrive Synchronizer is provided as is with no guarantees.
