How to remove a 'dead' mesh folder from local desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a folder on my local desktop that was syncronized with Mesh but somehow has lost it's way. It has the blue Mesh folder icon but it isn't in the cloud on Live Desktop.

    When I try to delete it via right-click Live Mesh options or thru explorer I get an error message saying "Cannot stop syncronizing folders ...Request to MOE failed with status code 404."

  • I've seen this. too. But I can't reproduce it now. It had something to do with the order where I created or deleted the folder (created on client and deleted on Live Desktop ot something like that). If I recall correctly,  fixed it by re-creating the folder in the other location.

  • I actually had this happen to me the other day.  In the process of changing the way I synced some data, I deleted a folder.  It happily vanished from the Live Desktop, vanished from the file server, vanished from the laptop, but stubbornly stuck around on the desktop.  Same 404 error.  To fix it, I ran LiveMesh.msi that is hiding out in user name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Live Mesh\Setup (on Vista anyways; on XP you'd need to start from the Local Settings folder in your user account).  Tell it Repar, sit back, wait for it to run, re-enter you log in information, close the Add Device window, and it should be pulling down the correct folder share settings.
