How can I get the SkyDrive app in Windows 8 to download all my files to a folder on my machine and keep them synced? For now, I can view the files but can't sync them to a folder like the application in Windows 7 did.

The Modern UI SkyDrive app cannot do this, however you can still download the desktop application from here to accomplish this the same way as in Windows 7.

Wouldn't it perhaps be better to say "The Metro SkyDrive app cannot do this yet"? – Karan Oct 23 '12 at 21:13
@Karan Possibly, however that sounds like I know this feature is coming, which I certainly don't...unless you know of a source that confirms that? I'll be happy to update if so! – Graham Wager Oct 23 '12 at 21:16
You're right, while it does seem likely to me that the feature will be added in future (it's early days yet after all and the OS hasn't yet reached GA), I don't know for sure either. – Karan Oct 23 '12 at 21:19
