What are Windows XP users replacing Live Mesh Beta with? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use Windows XP on two computers that I would like to keep in sync. I would like to know what applications other XP users have found to replace Live Mesh Beta to use for file sync and online backup after the Live Mesh Beta ends on March 31, 2011?

  • Some people have mentioned Dropbox as a reasonable alternative.

    For my XP machines, I manually sync files using GoodSync.

    Note that Live Mesh beta (or Windows Live Mesh) wasn't ever intended to be "online backup" of data. It provided a means to sync up to 5 gigs of data to the cloud.

    You can still manually upload files to SkyDrive from XP.
