How to choose locations for sync folders in Live Mesh RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I've been using Live Sync for years, and am just moving to live Mesh. I'm excited about the software, but encountering a problem.

    When I choose a folder on one machine that I want to sync, I can't figure out how to specify the location of the other folders on other machines I want it so sync with. That is:

    I have a folder on machine A called, say, "C:\FilesToSync". And I have a folder on machine B called, say, "D:\FilesToSync". (Right now, the contents of those two folders are identical, because I've been syncing them with Live Sync")

    I want to tell Windows Live Mesh to sync those two folders. This was possible in Windows Live Sync. But I can't figure out how to do it in Windows Live Mesh. Mesh seems to only allow me to select the device on which to sync the folder, and then automatically chooses a location on that device for me.

    Is there a way around this? Is there a way to tell Live Mesh where I want the synced folder to be? Is there a way to get it to sync with pre-existing folders? I've been looking for a long time but can't seem to figure this out.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Now I'm struggling with what seems to be crazy high CPU usage from MOE.exe on 2 of the 3 machines I'm trying to sync....

  • You already found the proper forum for Windows Live Mesh, so I suggest posting there regarding the excessive CPU issue.

    This forum is for  Live Mesh beta - www.mesh.com

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

  • No need to apologize. The naming convention and the forum locations can be quite confusing. ;-)
