Can I use Mesh to sync hidden files? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to sync Windows Live Mail (WLM) on two computers by using Mesh to sync the WLM messages and contacts HIDDEN files in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail

    Is this possible to do? Has anyone successfully done this?
