Live Sync Open Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does Live Sync sync open files?  I would like to make sure my PST file on my laptop stays sync'ed with my desktop which I am using more as a backup than anything.  I don't plan to open the PST on the desktop.

  • No, Live Mesh will not sync an open file. It also won't sync a .pst file:

    From Help -

    Live Mesh also blocks files that have the following file extensions:

    • .bak
    • .gfs
    • .laccdb
    • .lnk
    • .mbf
    • .mny
    • .mpc
    • .pst
    • .sav
    • .tmp
    • .wlx
