Had to format one of my devices?Need to Re-sync? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Due to unavoidable reasons, i had to format one of my devices. Now what is the best way to get it synced up with the cloud?

    I have read that, having a copy of all the files in the same pattern ( copied from another physical machine ) wouldn't help as mesh had to hash them again?

    Any suggestion/Precautions can be taken before a format to fasten the re-sync'ing of the device?

  • Hi,

    Right now there's not much you can do to make the re-sync go faster, but we'll have a new release ready in a week or so with a number of performance improvements.  Also, down the road we're looking to have "delta sync" functionality, which will greatly decrease the amount of data that Live Mesh has to send between devices if they are pre-installed (as it were) with the files to be synced.

    Again, though, right now it's probably best just to let the reformatted computer sync everything clean.

    Thanks,

    Ben.
