SkyDrive offers 25GB free space, but only offers a way too simple web upload one file at a time.

Does software exist, that makes it possible to mount it as a network drive?

Edit: The solutions work for a while, but stop working after awhile.

Onedrive did not even exist when I created the question @sunk818, so how can it be a duplicate? – Kjensen Dec 19 '14 at 10:52

A little update if anyone out there is interested like me :) http://skydrivesimpleviewer.codeplex.com/ gives you WebDAV url's so you can mount Skydrive folders natively in Windows Explorer with "Map network drive".

UPDATE: In case this method does not work for you (for some users it says invalid username or password), I managed to map skydrive as network drive using MS Word (publish to sky drive and taking url from there).

See Microsoft Office and web section in this document: http://www.mikeplate.com/2010/01/17/how-to-connect-to-skydrive-with-webdav/

This is absolutely the way to go. No third-party software running all the time, and it just works. This should be the accepted answer. – Andrew Jan 25 '11 at 18:59

That program doesn't works anymore. – OZ_ Sep 20 '11 at 17:38
    
Rather than using the third-party app to get the WebDAV URL, you can also just use Office: open a doc from skydrive in Office, Save As, and see the WebDAV URL right there. – Allanrbo Aug 5 '12 at 13:16

You need to use the Gladinet software to do this.

You do not need any external tools like Gladinet anymore.

There are a few tutorials:

SkyDrive Explorer will give you easy access to your SkyDrive from the Windows Explorer.

If you are linking to another answer's content and only providing a link its a sign you should flag the question as a duplicate. We expect more out of answer than a link a content that (by the way the original source no longer exists) for that exact reason so spend some time and provide the relevant information or I will do it and post my own answer :$ – Ramhound Dec 8 '14 at 22:02
    
I see a colon at the end of your answer. Is it truncated? – bwDraco Dec 9 '14 at 5:58
    
I edited the URL so it references web archived version. I don't know about you, but the link I referenced previously worked then and continues to work today. Maybe it was a glitch on your end. – Sun Mar 2 '15 at 16:52
