    Skydrive as a network drive

    Just been looking at this with the possibility of using it for some of my groups to co-edit documents and I would like them to be able to access the skydrive via a network mapped drive when they logon. Seen a few pages on the net of howto's but for whatever reason cant seem to get it to work i.e. one app to give me the paths to map just said I didn't have any folders and another just said I was using the wrong format for the 'net use'. If anyone has done it can they help with an example and a simpletons guide as it seems I need one!

    I've been able to do it using Windows 7's "Map Network Drive"

    Got the url from Office 2013 (https://d.docs.live.net/<uniqueidnumber>)
    Then, mapped a drive as normal using that as the URL and my Live Account as my username (my-live-username@outlook.com) and password (N0YourNotHavingIt)
