import mesh settings after windows 7 reinstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    Because I was facing some problems with my laptop, I reinstalled Win 7 (64 bit) on my machine. I made sure computer name (HP-Laptop) and Win 7 username  are same and all the data files are at the same location as it was before the reinstall.

    Now when I installed mesh, It has create two HP-Laptop's  in my devices list.
    I was wondering if there is a way to update mesh settings so that mesh recognizes this computer as the "previous HP-laptop" and all the old folder settings are back to normal. That way I will not have to setup all sync settings again.
    I had taken the backup of whole system and I also have windows.old folder.

    Thanks,
    Niks

  • You'll need to remove the "dead" machine from the device list at www.mesh.com and then modify the sync settings for your folders to sync with the "new" PC. There is, unfortunately, no way to import settings or convince Live Mesh that it is the same machine.
