  • this got my curious, so I Googled it.  Turns out it may be Mozy.  The files I sync that have these marks are the same ones I back up with it.  Green check=OK, red exclamation=needs to be backed up

  • What kind of device?
    Is this a new setup of Live Mesh on the PC or on a mobile device?
    If you try to access one of the files with an overlay, what happens?
    If you go to the notifier on the PC, assuming it is a PC, any messages for you to deal with?

  • do you use a program called GoodSync?  I have files like this in some of my mesh folders, just not all.  I decided it was probably from GoodSync, which is what i used to use to keep several folders in sync across a couple of PCs.  I still have them, and it's been a while (been using LM for a year).
