    Anyone know if skydrive explorer is safe to use or how to find out.

    What's to stop someone with a sinister motive from distributing useful
    looking software that can compromise your computer or information?

    Why would skydrive explorer be free?

  2. I wouldn't mind knowing this too, as this service looks like it might
    be a good solution for a problem I have had.

    Had a nosy around the site, possibly the business model is to get
    hooked on a free service providing up to 25GB of storage with file
    limited to 50MB, and then provide a premium paid service for people
    who need more or want extra features. I also notice they are carrying
    on their site, which will generate a bit of income, and are also
    asking for
    donations for development of new releases.

    Google reveals nothing about sinister motives, only that it is a bit
    for some users

    Yeah right. Who looks at source code? The writers of malicious code
    could probably release their source code without anyone bothering to
    check up.

    I wonder whether there's a U.S. govt department that looks into cyber
    security who investigates things like this. I wonder how often people
    have their credit card details stolen by trojans or whatever.

    Is it possible to track who the makers of skydrive explorer are, or
    does using a web host give them total anonimity?

    If they published their source code, anybody could check it for themselves.
