404 Error - Cannot synchronize folder in live Mesh RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an existing live mesh where all is working ok.

    I have a new laptop (win 7) I create a folder (creatively named shared).

    I right click on the the folder and select "Add folder to Live Mesh".

    I get a message that says "There is an unsynchronized folder named "Shared" already.

    Would you like to synchronize this folder to the location you selected?

    I say yes.

    I get the Synchoronize folder with this computer dialog:

    Name: Shared

    Location: C:\Shared

    I click OK.

    I get an error:

    Could not synchronize folder in live mesh.

    Request to MOE failed with status code:

    404 Server could not find the specified resource.

    How do I fix this?

  • Instead of trying to add the folder from the PC to your Mesh with the existing name, go to www.mesh.com, sign in and go to the folder on the Live Desktop and change the folder properties to sync with the newly added PC.

    It should then offer you the shared Mesh folder on the new PCs desktop as a shortcut. 

    Double clicking when it is faded light blue folder, brings you to a windows titled:

    Synchronize folder

    The text at the top of the window says "Synchronize folder with this computer."

    The name cannot be changed/

    The location is the path to your desktop folder.

    Next to this is browse.

    At the bottom of the Window is OK and Cancel.

    OK accepts the default offered location - your desktop.

    If you click OK, it will become a darker blue folder (still light blue) and it is now fixed to your desktop.

    If you click Browse, you can navigate to a folder of your choosing.

    Once you have reached that folder, click OK and accept the warning about merging with an existing folder and potential for conflicts.
