Why so slow at synching? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    It can be 5 minutes from I save a file in my folder on my laptop until it appears on my wife's laptop - both online and running newest Live mesh. My wife is running Vista 32bit, and I have been running both XP32bit and Win7 64bit.

    I have nor installed dropbox, that seems WAY faster... but I'd like af ix for live mesh instead, so any help out there?

    Thanks

  • 5 minutes is actually not bad. It can sometimes happen faster and sometimes much slower. The Live Mesh client works in the background and does not *instantly* spring into action to transfer data at full speed. If you are synchronizing with the Live Desktop, if the transfer of data is via the cloud or P2P, and the size of the file all play a role in speed.

    To be honest, my requirements are simply greater than that. I need to be able to put a file into my mesh folder and then not wait several minutes before I can close my laptop.

    But thanks for your feedback.
