Not good for syncing and sharing phone photos

  1. Syncing over phone breaks very often, you need to reconnect Wi-Fi manually for syncronization to continue.
  2. You can't select more than 100 photos to share with friends via link, you need to create a shared folder instead (Ok, done, but why won't tell me about that at the beginning).
  3. No "select all" function in web interface. You must click - very long annoying scroll - Shift + left click over last photo. Very tedious.
  4. Removing shared folder doesn't warn me about removing objects, not links to them! To unshare folder, you need to right click folder and remove link in floating pane.

All that confuses me and makes sharing photos time consuming.

Seems like the service was great and my online file storage still has plenty of room in it. So to speak.

Offers 25 GBs of free storage, but you're limited to downloading 5 files of upto 50MB each time, unless you're using IE.

EDIT: I mean upload (not download), and you can upload upto 200 files as long as you have Silverlight.

Also, Microsoft recently increased the size cap to 100GB.
