There is no doubt that we are big fans of using SkyDrive to sync our information between our Windows 8 PC’s and Tablets, Windows Phone and the cloud however there was a small downside to the desktop app where you could not selectively choose which folders sync to which machines. The reason why this is necessary is because one of your devices could be a tablet where not as much storage is available therefore having one machine sync everything while another only does some pictures is a welcome feature. Now that the ability to select which folders sync to which pc we will walk you through the steps to setup this feature.
Configuring Sync Folders in SkyDrive For Windows

You should see the settings screen launch with a new “Choose Folders” tab in the middle click it.
Now that you are in the “Choose Folders” tab click the “Choose Folders” button
A new window will launch giving you the option to sync everything or just a certain set of folders to sync to SkyDrive. Select the second radial and then you can begin to pick and choose which one of these folders will sync to this particular machine.
