Posted In Internet, Online Storage - By Techtiplib on Monday, December 31st, 2012 With No Comments »

Office 2013 is the latest version of Office suite, which is yet to be released to the general public and expected in early 2013. Office 2013 allows you to store documents and other presentations in cloud storage which is connected to SkyDrive which offers free 7GB of storage space. But if you are a Dropbox or a Google Drive user and want to save your documents and presentations in respective cloud services, then Microsoft does not offer a solution as of now.

An user from Dropbox forum has posted a script which allows you to add Dropbox as a cloud storage in Office 2013. A similar script is also available (via SumTips), which allows you to add Google Drive as cloud storage in Office 2013.
