"Much much better than dropbox, doogle drive etc."
Version: Live Mesh 2011 15.4.3508.1109
Unlike dropbox, google drive etc MS Windows Live Mesh syncs any folder you choose between multiple PC's, you don't have to reorganise your data to use ONE synced folder like the other services or remember to copy files into your 'dropbox'. It is fast, has minimal network and processor usage and has been reliable for me since I started using it a couple of years ago. Live mesh even has built-in remote desktop functionality so you can connect to PC's that don't normally support remote desktop, like Win7 home.
MS are going to 'update' Live Mesh when Windows 8 launches and make it just like Dropbox, so it'll only sync one folder and won't have the remote desktop functionality. They're going to dump a service that is way better than the competition and copy their competitors products. I'm not interested in a solution that requires me to put everything I want to sync under one dropbox-type folder, the only option for me after that will be SugarSync.
Microsoft are idiots for planning to dump this product.
