Microsoft, I’m confused. You release Windows Live Essentials and say that the new Live Sync is the Old Live Mesh, and that the Mesh as I know it, is going away. To add to the insult, the storage is dropping from 5GB to 2GB I’m told. It’s annoying, but I switch. I even switched early as a beta tester and had to suffer greatly through “cannot connect” and “please reboot or reinstall” errors.
Now, you’ve sent me a notice that Windows Live Mesh 2011 is available?
I’m confused. I must not be alone in this.
Windows Live Sync which replaced the Beta of Windows Live Mesh apparently has been renamed to a less consumer friendly name, but regained the features of the old Mesh beta product.
XP isn’t supported any more. I wish Windows Home Server was officially supported. It would make for a great place to sync files and a easier way to gain access to the full WHS desktop from anywhere.
By the way, during this confusing period, I switched to DropBox anyway. Sigh.
