can I access skydrive files offline on Windows RT?

Hello, I am new to Skydrive and have recently started using it. Can anyone tell me the downloaded local copies of my files stored on Skydrive from its app will be available on Windows 8 RT that I am using? I just want to get some information if I will be able to access the Skydrive files on a Windows 8 RT version when I am disconnected to the internet? Thanks for any information in advance.

If you want to make an individual folder and all files in it available offline, then when you are connected to the internet then press and hold or right click on a Skydrive folder and then click on Make available offline to make. If you want to make an individual file offline then when you are connected to the internet then press and hold or right click on the Skydrive file and then click on "Make available offline". Thats it and you are done.

I dont think that the Skydrive sync client is supported on Windows 8 RT version, since you are using the Windows 8 version of the Skydrive application. So, it simply means that you will not get any offline support for some file types like the office documents. However you will be able to view Skydrive photos offline from the Photos app.

I think that there is a Skydrive app for Windows RT that gives access to all Skydrive files but it will not sync and only allow file access, thats it. As for the offline access, it is still being developed since its a very important feature. For office documents, any file you have opened has an offline version cached till office 2013 version.
