Utility ~ Windows Live Mesh (Obsolete)


Windows Live Mesh is no longer part of Windows Essentials and is replaced by Microsoft SkyDrive.

They are both free applications that synchronize files and folders between computers and require a Microsoft Account (previously known as Windows Live ID). Typical uses include sharing files, such as photos, with other computers, and creating synchronised copies of files and folders.

Windows Live Mesh offers 5 GB of free synchronised storage space.

Microsoft SkyDrive offers 7 GB of free synchronised storage space that allows files to be shared with individuals, groups, or networks.

The Windows Essentials applications are supported on the latest Windows operating systems, and Windows Live Essentials on earlier Windows versions.
