Live Mesh Update

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

Couple of points worth noting if you are going to use Live Mesh

(1) File paths longer than 269 characters (folder paths > 248) won’t sync  – shorten the path to fix

(2) PST files won’t sync – even if they are not in use

 

By default Mesh wants to put the target folder into your Documents area.  The way round it is:

  1. On the source machine open Live Mesh select the folder to synchronise e.g.  c:\scripts
  2. On the target machine create c:\scripts
  3. Open Live Mesh on the target machine
  4. On the folder you want to sync select sync this folder
  5. Select the folder you just created

The synchonisation now happens to the folder you want rather than your profile area.

Otherwise it works as advertised
