    My computer is on it's last legs so I want to backup all my music. It's only like 6GB but the lack of Folder uploads is making it really tedious.

    Well if it's just a backup for archiving purposes you could always try compressing the file with something like 7Zip or WinRAR and tell it to split the archives so that they're 100MB each. (Individual file size limit is 100MB on SkyDrive right? I haven't used SkyDrive yet.)

    Or, you can try something like this:

    How to Use SkyDrive’s 25 GB as a Mapped Drive for Easy Access - How-To Geek

    You can create a folder in SkyDrive, then map it as a network drive on your computer, then just copy and paste.

    Though I will say, 6GB is going to take quite a while to upload unless you have a speedy internet connection.

    So you stopped after linking profiles? Okay, do you have Microsoft Office?

    Hmm, well that won't work then if you can't use Office.

    Try these directions then:

    I appreciate your efforts but I give up. This is too hard for me and I feel like I will mess my computer up.

    Sorry, hopefully Microsoft will add support for that in the future.

    It's not so bad. I just created a folder in Skydrive for each album and "mass" uploaded the songs.

    How do you mass upload?

    When you click "Add Files" in Skydrive, you will be given to the option to "drop files here or select from your computer". You can choose either one. Open the folder with the songs, and hold down "shift" and up/down arrow to select multiple files.

    Alternative you can just create a folder on Skydrive and open your music folder, select all and just drag it to skydrive. They will all upload but I have a ton of folders, it will take forever.

    Isn't that what the Skydrive desktop app does, just automatically? Or does this route not take up local space on your PC? I know the skydrive desktop app will sync files locally.
