I have skydrive & Google drive on my PC. When I scan a PDF doc does these 2 drives suck up the docs in their respective cloud automatically?

I mean to ask when my scanned doc is sent to my documents on my pc would that document automatically appear on my skydrive and google drive. I have also downloaded SD & GD on my pc. does that mean these both drives each will grab the file from my documents on my pc or do I have to move it myself. but if want both have a copy than I have to copy the file and open up the other drive and paste it. Next if I do this will it pop up on my cloud with SD & GD? I am sorry but this question is too long. hope someone out there will actually take time to read this question and direct me to the right way of working with cloud. thanks

Saving documents on your computer in any folder does not automatically save such document to Google Documents or Skydrive. You will have to manually save these files in Google Docs and Skydrive. Check out the procedures on and

Wouldn't it be more easy for these drives to suck it up and sync files right away without going to the documents in pc and having to manually get it to the SD & GD. This can save a lot of time, especially when a person like me to empty my pc hard drive and send a billion files over. I may be considering to pay for the extra storage. But before I do this I want to make sure if this is going to work. There must be a way to do this. Mass files & folders to send to GD & SD right from your pc's my documents.
