AshokNews and Updates, Technical TipsLeave a Comment

Following is a quick summary of the differences between SharePoint WorkSpace vs. SharePoint SkyDrive Pro. I personally use and recommend SharePoint WorkSpace (which is compatible with both SharePoint 2010 and 2013). It is an excellent product that has really improved my workflow and collaboration.

SharePoint WorkSpace

  • Part of Office 2010
  • Compatible with SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013
  • Handles document libraries as well as lists (e.g. issues, discussions)
  • Allows you to selectively choose what to download locally


SkyDrive Pro

  • Part of Office 2013
  • Compatible with SharePoint 2013 only
  • Only handles document libraries
  • Must download all documents in the site – no selective download
