    Skydrive permissions

    Can anyone answer me a question on Skydrive permissions?

    If I create a shared folder and set the permissions to 'everyone' does that mean that the contents can be searched by google and appear in listings 'or' is it still only available to people who I send a link to unless someone guessed the very long URL?

    I basically want to share some docs with people that don't have a hotmail account but don't want the content to suddenly appear on google. I suppose we could just create a hotmail account and share the username and passwords between us but i'd rather make it as easy ass possible.

    Any takers?

    Cheers

    Search google for "site:skydrive.live.com" without "s :P (aka. Yes it's searchable if it's cached on their servers). Not sure if it needs to have been linked on a site to be cached or if they're "roboting" them.

    Hmm that's what I'm wondering, if the only time it's cached is if a google bot had followed a link there, in which case it's not a problem.
