What happens when I try and place a live mesh folder within another live mesh folder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry if this has been asked before, it was a difficult question to think of search terms for.

    I have live mesh folders within a parent "Documents" folder, that sync with PCs and the Live Desktop. What will happen if I try to add the parent "Documents" folder as a Live Folder itself?

    Will it let me? If it does will it work - that is, will it sync:
    - Sub Folders with Live Desktop+PCs
    - Parent Folder with other PCs (even though some sub folders are syncing too)

  • You cannot have a folder within a Live mesh folder be another Live Mesh folder. When you enable Live Mesh sync for the top level folder, all data within that folder is part of the Live Mesh. you can't select or de-select folders or data within for sync. And you cannot then share a sub-folder again as a different Sync point.
