Where can I find detailed instructions on syncing my laptop and PC? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have several folders on the PC that I want to sync with my laptop.  Both computers are part of my mesh and I have added those folders from my PC to my mesh. 

    I also want those folders on my laptop.  Should I just copy them over from the PC via network or flash drive, or can LiveMesh take care of this?

    Both computers are running Vista.

  • Personally, I would copy the folders manually to the laptop over the network and then add the latop to the Mesh. When the folders are offered, click the desktop icon for the Live mesh folder and change the sync details to sync with an existing folder. Point to the newly copied folder and Live Mesh should then not need to download all of the data to the laptop again, unless a conflict is created with timestamps on the laptop being later than the desktop.
