Like its competition, SkyDrive syncs the contents of a single folder and its subfolders. But unlike either Dropbox or Google Drive, SkyDrive allows you to browse the file system of a connected PC. If your remote PC is on and this option is enabled, you can browse its file system and retrieve files you left behind, even if they're stored outside your synced folder.
This "Fetch" option is enabled by default. You can disable it during setup, or afterwards by right-clicking the SkyDrive icon in the taskbar, opening the Settings dialog box, and clear =ing the "Fetch files" option.
