Windows Live Folders

The news has been all over the place about Microsoft getting into cloud storage with the release of the first public beta of Windows Live Folders. I quickly signed up for it, and signed in - only to be a little bit disappointed.

I'm not saying the service is no good - I don't expect much for free - but at the moment, it's missing one key peice of functionality, or at least I didn't see it. There's no way to either automate it or do it with a windows application. I want to be able to drag a file to a folder, and have it uploaded automagically.

Now, here's my guess: when this is released officially, it'll work with Folder Share?- it's got some of the same features, such as being able to share your files with others. Until then, it's still an interesting application - just not as useful as I would like it to be.

Oh yeah - they also opened up Live Photo Gallery, which looks pretty nice, but not all that interesting to me.
