Beta testers of Windows Live Mesh, will soon discover that it’s now merging with new Windows Live Sync, a part of the updated Windows Live Essentials Wave 4 suite of applications.
The technology that was developed for Live Mesh will form the basis of new service, which’ll provide 2 GB of free storage in cloud for your most vital files & folders in addition to synchronizing your files (like those in your Documents, Pictures, Music, etc. folders) between PCs…or Macs. When you update one file, that change is made available on all your connected computers. Files uploaded to cloud are then available on any computer with an internet connection.
Also like Live Mesh, new service will offer remote desktop management for free from any computer on web. Once live, you’ll head over to devices.live.com to see a list of all your connected PCs and from there, you can click “connect” to begin remotely controlling them.
Those using Live Mesh will have it removed upon upgrading to new Live Essentials. Afterwards, you can set up your folders for syncing again via Live Sync.
