I have desperately been trying to run multiple instances of the Windows Desktop SkyDrive Sync App on Windows 8. I have several Microsoft accounts and through creating Symbolic links have been able to allow SkyDrive to find the files & folders I would like to sync without actually moving them to the SkyDrive folders. I would like all the syncing to happen in the background, so I would need multiple instances of SkyDrive to be running. Here's what I have tried so far:
I created a new user, switched accounts to set up and run SkyDrive. This works fine except that I need to always remember to log in the other account(s) when I start my computer, another downside is that each log in starts unnecessary programs that just take up RAM.
C:\Windows\system32>psexec -u [Username] -p [Password] -d "C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\SkyDrive\SkyDrive.exe"
If no SkyDrive process is already running on the computer, this will work and start the SkyDrive process of that account. However this will mean that I cannot start the SkyDrive process of my primary account. Starting that will simply open the SkyDrive folder of the other account. And Vice versa.
Any ideas guys, please? Thanks in advance.
