    Well this totally screws me.

    You can't use the desktop SkyDrive app, the one that is the same on Windows 7 & Vista, on Windows 8 with a different MS Account...

    Just FYI, if this is a problem for you, as it is huge for me.

    I have had the problem with linking MS Accounts so this is why I just transferred over everything to one account, except SkyDrive as you can't transfer it....now this...ugh!

    Just finished installing and indeed the desktop app uses the login account.

    You can always go through the web interface, but why can't you transfer files from one skydrive to another?

    The way I guess you could do it is to convert your Wins8 account to a local account but then app settings and the like would not sync across machines?

    I just said f it and gave MS $10 a year for my new account to have the same space my old account did because they could not figure out the issue for the last three months, plus. I don't want to go back but it sucks it is costing me money.




    ...I get that it is a free, awesome service but it is still their mistake...

    Yes you can...

    I have the same Skydrive account logged into my Windows 7 machine as my Windows 8 machine...

    Two people said you can't. Your answer doesn't read right. Are you sure you read the issue correctly. It is: In W8 I use an @outlook.com, when logging into skydive desktop app with @msn.com account it says a different account than the one logged into W8 is in use, stops.
