Syncing IE9 Favorites - GPO has favorites stored on network share RRS feed

  • Question

  • K, so I am in an Active Directory environment and our group policy has our favorites stored on a network share.  When I go to use Windows Live Mesh to sync favorites with the new IE9 RC :)  I get the following error.  "Sorry, there was a problem syncing these settings, The settings are saved in a network location.  Save them in a folder on this computer, and then try again."  Changing the GPO is not an option at this point... 

    It would be nice if at least the favorites could be synced from a network share.  I realize that this means setting up an additional folder, say on your home computer to sync your favorites with; since you don't have access to the network share.

    Since you are referring to Windows Live Mesh, not Live Mesh - www.mesh.com, you are in the wrong forum. Yes, the naming convention is confusing, though I like that they kept the Mesh name alive for the upgrade to Live Sync (formerly FolderShare).


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



    Live Mesh (beta and now Windows Live Mesh) don't allow synchronizing folders that exist on a nework location.
