2 large folders - file sync not working !? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We need to sync a large folder (within my documents) we have on a pc (A) with another pc (B) that's at a different location.
    The folder on PC A is about 300 GB (with lot's of subdirs); the corresponding folder on pc B is empty.
    If we activate sync, folder structure (with all the subdirs ) of PC A is quickly been recreated on PC B. The problem is no file at all is synced with B (folder remain empty).
    We tried adding / changing file on A, but still no sync or file created on B. We waited some days, still no change.
    Please note that sync with live desktop is disabled (as folder larger than 5 GB)

    Any suggestions ?
    Thanks in advance

  • How long are you waiting. For this huge amount of data, Live Mesh needs to crunch through loads of data to build its database on both ends. I would imagine that this will take many hours on its own, perhaps days. And, the file sync via Live Mesh is likely to take a very long time - days at the very least.
