What is the forum for Live Sync Beta? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We need a place to put the feedback to the new sync service.  E.G.  We REALLY need more than 2 GB. And where has the remote desktop gone?  It was supposed to be in there, right??

  • Unfortunately the Live Sync team are not monitoring this forum.

    All feedback regarding Windows Live Sync Beta should probably be redirected to the 'windowslivehelp.com' forum here (for all users to discuss), and additionally submitted through the Live Feedback site (to directly send to the team).

  • it is my understanding that this forum, for Live Mesh, will be shut down eventually. The first link provided by ShadowXVII to the Live Sync forum on the windowslivehelp.com site is the correct place for Live Sync discussion now. I don't know of any forums specific to the beta.

  • The support for the Live Sync is in the forum Shadow linked above.  Now that I'm not longer shackled with the "The first rule to Live Essentials is we don't talk about Live Essentials" I'll be a lot more active here again to help with questions, concerns and suggestions.

  • Live sync beta is actually pretty cool... but the 5gb of storage would be even better.. I think we should be polite and tell Microsoft how much the extra storage means to us!!

    Looks like they've changed their minds: http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_live/b/windowslive/archive/2010/08/27/windows-live-sync-to-be-named-windows-live-mesh.aspx

    "More cloud storage

    We continue to see that the primary way customers are syncing files is between their different PCs (or Macs). And we will continue to make it easy to sync virtually unlimited amounts of data between your PCs. When syncing files to the cloud, beta participants get 2 GB of synced cloud storage. Only 2% of these participants are using more than 1.5 GB. However, Live Mesh offers 5 GB, and while only a small number of Live Mesh customers use all their space, we want to ease migration and increase the online storage limit from 2 GB to 5 GB.

    A number of customers have asked why we don’t allow you to sync up to 25 GB, given that 25 GB is the SkyDrive limit. While we merged Sync and Live Mesh in this release, we did not merge the online storage system used for Live Mesh with the one used for Office or Photos on SkyDrive. This means that each system has different storage limits and is optimized for different scenarios.

    SkyDrive offers enough storage for you to share documents and photos with friends, family, and co-workers. Hotmail offers enough storage for you to store your email, calendar, and contacts. Windows Live Mesh lets you sync all your files and folders across your PCs and devices, and provides enough cloud storage for your most important files. Over time, we’ll be considering ways to do even more to share information across these systems."
