  • Deleted files should be in the Recycle Bin on the PC they were deleted from if Live Mesh took action on them based on mirroring activity from another device in your Mesh. If they are not there, you may have emptied the recycle bin. Check the other devices in the Mesh.
    Another reason for deletion or files is that you are using two different Sync solutions on the same folder. If that is the case, all bets are off as files can be deleted by either program due to the conflict.
    Check the Live Mesh notifier to see what actions were performed and what the source of the actions were.
    If you are unable to determine the cause of the deletions, please open a bug report with logs from all machines in your Mesh.
    Note that since this is a beta, you really should have a backup of your data in safe location that is not automatically synchronized in the Mesh.

    Note that you may not get a response to the bug report, though. It will be transferred to the internal system to be assigned to the appropriate development group.
