Can SkyDrive sync Outlook files to Android?
I use MS Outlook for all my major contacts and calendar stuff. I also use a Samsung Galaxy Note II phone and I did a one time transfer into Google with my database.
This isn't very efficient so I wonder if using SkyDrive I can keep my Outlook master file in sync with those in Android?
I don't think you are going to be syncing to Google using Skydrive. Download Google Calendar Sync for syncing your Outlook Calendar with Google. That is free. Contacts are trickier. One way is to buy an app that does it. I bought a Companionlink product for about 40 bucks that does it. If you buy that, you will not need Google Calendar Sync because the Companionlink product does both the Calendar and Contacts. The third way is to transition to a Google Apps account which would require a domain name be purchased. Google Apps has the capability of syncing both Contacts and Calendar info with Outlook.
I ended up deciding I would just use Google for my contacts and not use Outlook at all for them. I continue to use Calendar Sync with my Outlook Calendar.
