Letting Skydrive save to a MicroSD card in HP Elitepad (windows 8 tablet)

So I just got my HP Elitepad, I wanted to sync my documents using Skydrive to an SD card. At first Skydrive wouldn’t let me do this, fortunately I came across an article here, with some simple steps:

  1. Format the MicroSD card as NTFS (otherwise this method will not work).
  2. Create a D:Skydrive folder on the MicroSD.
  3. Create a Folder C:Data
  4. Create a mount point for the MicroSD drive as C:Data on the fixed drive.
  5. Install Skydrive Desktop and supply C:DataSkydrive as the skydrive folder.
  6. Watch Skydrive “fill both folders” with you Skydrive cloud data.
