    Skydrive folder size ever increasing

    The Skydrive folder on my laptop is evergrowing. I periodically have to delete everything I can in it. Is there something I need to do to keep this from happening?
    Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Are you adding files to it? What do you think is causing it?

    Isn't Skydrive shared? Perhaps he has shared his Skydrive with other people, and they are adding items to the folder.

    Yes, what is actually in the folder should go a long way toward figuring out where the files are coming from.

    From my experience, my Skydrive does not change in size unless I manually add files to it. I wonder if the OP has set something up to automatically send changes to Skydrive. Unfortunately, since I use Skydrive very little, I am unaware how this could have been done.

    The desktop application has had the ability to choose folders to include in SkyDrive sync for a few months now so any computer with that active application on the same account is probably going to sync just like dropbox does.

    See this article for more info that might help with settings.
