how to sync folders with windows live mesh
Posted on 2010-11-27
I am trying to sync my laptop and desktop using Windows Live Mesh. I have a folder on my laptop called "CurrentWork" and the same folder on my desktop.
I will sometimes work on the laptop, and sometimes on the desktop. I have been copying the most current version back and forth manually. I would like to have Windows Live Mesh do this. That is what it is advertised to do.
However, when I try to set this up I first try to sync the desktop it will sync to a Skydrive and when I sync from the laptop, I say sync to the skydrive and the desktop. I then have a folder called "CurrentWork" on in my personal folders on the laptop that is a copy of the "real" CuurentWOrk on my desktop, and I have a folder called "CurrentWork" on in my personal folders on the desktop that is a copy of the "real" CuurentWOrk on my laptop. The two "real" folders have different stuff in them.
I don't want or need the copies in my personal folders. I just want the two "real" copies to be synced. (I also don't care about the Skydrive.)
