Windows Live Sync Now Called As Windows Live Mesh

Microsoft once again rejiggering its plans for Windows Live Mesh and Live Sync — “In beta release, we brought Live Sync and Live Mesh together[…]Following beta period, we’ll be using the name Windows Live Mesh,” announced Microsoft. And there’re some important changes afoot, only available in final Windows Live Essentials 2011 (emhasis added):

  • A number of customers noted inability to sync hidden files, we added this support. Also, customers wanted a list of which files were missing in a synced folder. Now when Live Mesh detects missing files, you can easily see file name and when and where it was last modified.
  • When syncing files to cloud, beta participants get 2 GB cloud storage. Only 2% are using more than 1.5 GB. However, Live Mesh offers 5 GB, and while only a small number of customers use all their space, we want to ease migration and increase the online storage limit from 2 GB to 5 GB.
  • We’ve made several performance updates to Live Mesh. “Application load time is cutted to half and syncing large numbers of folders and adding multiple devices to a sync folder is now faster. Also optimized both memory and CPU usage during sync activity as well as decreased CPU consumption by as much as 30% when Live Mesh is idle.
