Favorites RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of the things I use foldershare for is synchronizing my favorites and some other standard files across multiple real and virtual machines. I just like to have my environment the same. I don't seem to be able to do that for the favorites folder in Mesh. Is there a reason why? If it did that I'd probably shut down foldershare tomorrow.

  • Hello,
    The Live Mesh client doesn't block synchronizing your favorites folder.  We do, however, block synchronizing folders if they conflict with other folders being synchronized on the machine, or if it's on a network drive, etc.  A brief look at some restrictions can be found here.  It is likely you are hitting some restriction like this.  Our error dialogs aren't very useful for troubleshooting this today, so please open up a bug in Connect and attach your logs (Start > Programs > Live Mesh > Collect Live Mesh Logs) and we can take a look.

    Thanks!
