How much battery does Live Mesh for mobile use? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'd like to use Live Mesh to sync my music and photos between my PC and my Windows Mobile 6.1 Pocket PC. However, I'm concerned with the effect on my phone's battery life if I always have Live Mesh running in the background. Does anyone have information on how much power Live Mesh for mobile consumes?

    Also, as a side note, has anyone been successful syncing their music folders between their phone and PC using Live Mesh?

  • It would appear to me, with my limited usage of Live Mesh on my Windows Mobile phone, that it doesn't run in the background. The client synchronizes on demand, not on a schedule, or so it would appear.

    I don't keep music on my phone, but I do sync a folder of pictures on the phone to my mesh devices and desktop.
