If you want an easy way to manage skydrive, you can use this software:

http://www.gladinet.com/store/p/BuyNow.aspx

It's $50, but is worth it if you want to have your cloud storage look like a local drive.  Basically it maps your cloud storage to a local drive and will work with skydrive, Amazon, Google, etc.

Dropbox is excellent and free if you can live with the 2 gb limit.  It's particularly good if you need to sync files on different computers.  You just load the dropbox app on all of the computers and when the computer connects to the Internet, the Dropbox folder is automatically updated.  I use it as a way to sync certain files.  Because of the space limitation, however, I don't use it for backup.  I use Mozy for that, but also have Google Docs and a Skydrive, managed with Gladinet.
