Yes good question. I'm interesting too!

Atually if you use mapped drive you can work with it like with other flsers and even i tested it wth sync framework filesync scenarios but after 1-2 syncs i can't enter the drive.

Does anyone know how to solve it? I doesn't use any thirdparty code. Just System.IO and Microsoft.Syncronization.

Error still happened without using sync fx.

Thans for your program. I'm using it for Microsoft Office WebApps. I have set file extension association to my script for Office xls;xlsx;doc;docx. Office's file is uploaded to SkyDrive "My documents" folder in my account and then opened in WebApps Office. After close its saved back to original location.

How did you get the CID for each user?

who is "each user" ?

user in my script is specified :
set SkyDrivePassword=password

and CID is taken by tool DumpUrls.exe
