What is the easy way to select folders to sync in live mesh RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to sync my laptop with my desktop. The folder on my laptop is d:\my documents the folder on my desk top is public\documents

    When I try to sync from my laptop all of the files go on my desktop PC in c:\users\andy\document.

    When I try from my desktop PC all of the files go into my laptop PC in c:\users\andy\documents.

    Is there an easy way to select which folders you want to sync? I must be missing something that should be easy?

    I have loked at various discussions on this subject and tried a few of them but without succuess, I really need a nice easy step by step instruction.

  • It is a bug in Windows Live Mesh. Since your source is located in a folder at the root of the drive, the destination folder cannot be chosen by you and it dumps it into the logged in user documents folder.


    Since you are referring to Windows Live Mesh, not Live Mesh - www.mesh.com, you are in the wrong forum. Yes, the naming convention is confusing, though I like that they kept the Mesh name alive for the upgrade to Live Sync (formerly FolderShare).


    For discussion of the new Windows Live Mesh (formerly Sync), (as well as the released Live Sync version) go here:
