Switching from Dropbox to Live Mesh RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the situation:

    I am currently using Dropbox on two computers and there is already 40 gigs of synced data between the two computers.  I am going to migrate to Live mesh to do all the syncing.  How do I make a smooth transition to Live mesh so I dont have to download/upload any files since they are both synced currently?

     

    what are the steps to have Live mesh recoginize that those folders on both PC's are identical and thus not having to upload/download....etc

     

    thanks

  • Don't use Live Mesh beta.

    Use Windows Live Mesh - http://get.live.com/

    Once you install Windows Live Mesh, simply select the folders that you wish to sync and if they are already in sync, it will update fairly quickly.

     

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

    Live Mesh Beta connects to www.mesh.com for the Live Desktop. The tray icon for Live Mesh beta is a blue circle.

    Windows Live Mesh has a tray icon of two arrows in a circular shape. Windows Live Mesh is installed with Windows Live Essentials. And to view your connected devices you go to http://devices.live.com
