SkyDrive Pro sync on network PCs?
We're looking at implementing SkyDrive Pro \ SharePoint as a replacement for network storage (Documents redirection and Shared Drives) but wondering if anyone else has got around the potential issues of how the sync works?
Our new machines all come with SSDs (first gen ones had 60GB, this year's batch are 120GB) so not as much space as when you'd get 160GB+ per desktop. In theory each user could store 25GB on their personal drive and a lot more on shared drives (staff). Problem being SkyDrive Pro isn't exactly intelligent and syncs the entire contents of each location into your local user profile. With a couple of users signing into the machine I can see drives filling up pretty quickly if users take advantage of the increased limits.
If you don't install SkyDrive Pro there's no quick and easy way to save to the online storage outside of Office 2013 (I don't see manual upload via the web afterwards as an acceptable solution personally). What would be ideal would be a similar method to the Windows 8.1 Smart Files feature i.e. present everything to the user but download files as and when required. That way you get easy save to cloud but without massive amounts of sync traffic.
Alternatively has anyone found a different way?
