Windows Live FolderShare is an Online storage service that lets users sign-in to set up Libraries that consist of folders on multiple PCs. These Libraries are synced using the Windows Live FolderShare client that sits on each PC. Users can have multiple Libraries setup as well as Shared Libraries with friends.
Today, the FolderShare Team is shipping a Beta Refresh of both the Windows Live FolderShare website and client that offers some great improvements to the Windows Live FolderShare service at http://www.foldershare.com/. Those improvements include:
- Improved usability with the Windows Live FolderShare website – UI aligns with other Windows Live services.
- Updated Windows Live FolderShare Client.
- Back-end improvements.
- Full Windows Vista support with updated Windows Live FolderShare Client.
Today’s Beta Refresh supports Windows Live FolderShare’s already supported countries and regions: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese.
If you are already a Windows Live FolderShare Beta user – it is recommended you upgrade to today’s new beta client. Your account information, folders, device, and settings should migrate over just fine. Users who don’t upgrade to the new Windows Live FolderShare client Beta should expect to be asked to upgrade in the near future.
Windows Live FolderShare is an amazing way to sync your files with multiple PCs and access your files remotely. It really saves a lot of time from bouncing between multiple PCs. Thanks to Windows Live FolderShare, all I have to do is sit at any of my PCs and I have all my important files I need.
