Thumbs up SkyDrive Client for Linux openSuse


Greetings;

I have high amount of data stored on MSN Skydrive But I do not know of a skydrive client that runs on Linux, which lets you store, in conclusion, to manage those files. I know there are other vendors that do have, for example, DropBox, but for different reasons, are not an option for me.

You know, that client exists, SkyDrive for Linux, and is compatible with Dolphin or Nautilus.

Are you TELLING us that the client exists, or ASKING if it does? Your question (??) is confusing.

From what I've seen, you can use any webdav client, like wdfs for Linux, to access that resource.

Ok, I'm asking, but for Skydrive.

Ok, and I'm telling (as in my first post), that you can use any webdav client to do it.

Dolphin and Konqueror both have places where you can mount a network drive via webdav. Wdfs utilities are available for Linux, to let you do it from command line/fstab.

Thanks, Please give me a practical example.
I need something like sdexplorer but for Linux.

Can you provide a link to an explanation of how to do it? I have never found any mentions of anyone being able to access SkyDrive via webdav from Linux. I've looked in the past and again after seeing this thread.

Any mentions I've found of webdav and SkyDrive are either someone explaining how to find the webdav urls, someone speculating that it should be possible to use webdav to accessing SkyDrive from Mac OS X/Linux/whatever, or someone saying they tried access SkyDrive via webdav from Linux and couldn't get it to work.

That would be Dolphin or Konqueror, and you should have to attach a network drive. Under Dolphin, in the places bar on the left, click Network->Add Network Folder. When the dialog pops up, you'll see Webdav listed. Click next, and fill in the blanks.

This is the link I found when looking for various things, in trying to make my MobileME disk work under Linux.
http://letconex.blogspot.com/2010/08...th-webdav.html

..which is what gave me the info about Skydrive being a webdav resource. Apparently, you've got to know some MS specific resource names for SkyDrive, which that article leads you to. If you've got davfs support installed already, you can try:
Code:
mount -t davfs https://my.webdav.disk/path /media/webdav
which should prompt you for user ID/PW. I'm using wdfs from the command line, which is very similar. From what I've been able to determine, the user ID/resource name is very picky. For example, if I put my root path for my MobileME iDisk in with a capital letter (as my user name is), it'll fail. Same with the user ID...has to ALL be lower case. Can't tell you if that's a webdav limitation, or if it's something to do with MobileME.

EDIT: something I thought of after posting this. There are apparently some funny things that go on with Webdav. For example, I saw MANY examples via Google of people with Ubuntu using the mount command as above on openSUSE. Wdfs, however, DOES work fine...perhaps someone more familiar with webdav and davfs/fuse could address it.

You can use SMESTOREAGE(.COM) to do this. It works similar to Gladinet under Windows. But whats not immediately obvious is that you are limited to 1Gb/month under the free account.

Oh well, back to the drawing board. Adrive so far works best for me, due to ability to drag and drop folders there. Skydrive refuses folders which is the biggest drawback for me.
