  • Looking to sync my themes across windows but live mesh won't allow me to synch this location. Is this my design or due to security?

  • Are you referring to Live Mesh beta, www.mesh.com, or Windows Live Mesh 2011? If the latter, you are in the wrong forum.

     

    For discussion of the new Windows Live Mesh (formerly Sync), (as well as the released Live Sync version) go here:

    http://windowslivehelp.com/forums.aspx?productid=24

     

    Note however, that that is a System folder, so it won't be able to be synchronized using Windows Live Mesh - http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mesh-sync-file-types-ui

     

    System folders cannot be synchronized using Live Mesh beta, either.

    This is from the Live Mesh beta help:

    "You cannot synchronize or share the following with Live Mesh:

    Files containing obscene or copyrighted material. Copying or sharing unauthorized materials, including materials that you did not create or you do not have the rights necessary for use, is a violation of the Windows Live terms of use. See the Microsoft Copyright Notice and FAQ.

    -Files whose names begin with a tilde (~)

    -desktop.ini

    -thumbs.db

    -Hidden files

    -Windows Systems folders

    -Your Desktop directory folder (for example, C:\users\[myusername]\Desktop on Windows Vista or C:\Documents and Settings\[myusername]\Desktop on Windows XP)

    -Files and folders stored on removable media (such as an external hard drive, flash drive, or USB drive)

    -Files and folders stored on mapped network drives"
