As noted in several places (by now 😉 an update to Windows Live Folders was announced, renamed Windows Live Skydrive. Now an open beta is available to all in the States, UK, and India. (Maybe Canada, too?)
Per the Skydrive team, this is a feature update, including the following:
- An upgraded look and feel – new graphics to go along with your new features!
- “Also on SkyDrive” – easily get back to the SkyDrives you’ve recently visited
- Thumbnail images – we heard you loud and clear, and now you can see thumbnails of your image files
- Drag and drop your files – sick of our five-at-a-time upload limit
- Drag and drop your files right onto your SkyDrive
- Embed your stuff anywhere – with just a few clicks, post your files and folders anywhere you can post html
