The potential is limitless says Live Mesh team, but if you’re wondering “how many folders and files can you put in Live Mesh today? What’s the maximum file size and how many people can you invite into a folder? Is there a limit to the number of devices you can add?” The Team expects these numbers to go up with subsequent service updates.

Here’s a quick summary of the upper bounds:

  • Size of all contents in a single Live Folder: 10GB (of course there’s still the 5GB quota which limits how much you can synchronize with the Live Desktop)
  • Individual file size: 2GB
  • Items (file or folders) per Live Folder: 100,000
  • Members per Live Folder: 200
  • Number of Live Folders per user: 200
  • Number of devices per user: 100

However, there’re some limits on the file/folder type you can share or synchronize. Live Mesh also blocks files that have the following file extensions: .bak, .gfs, .lnk, .pst, .sav, .tmp and .wlx. You are also not allowed/supposed to share files containing obscene or copyrighted material. Copying or sharing unauthorized materials, including materials that you did not create or you do not have the rights necessary for use, is a violation of the Windows Live terms of use.
