Live Mesh is a cloud file syncing product / service from Microsoft. Live Mesh works with desktop applications on either your PC or Mac which monitor certain folders for changes and when file changes are detected it synchronizes those changes with the cloud. You can also set your clients to synchronize from the cloud which allows for one or two way syncing. They provide you a very generous 50G of storage which is 50X some of the synching services such as BOX.net or dropbox.
I had a TERRIBLE time getting anything to work from my Mac for the longest time. For some reason all the OS X friendly browsers (Safari, Firefox) I was trying got this endless loop upon Live Mesh Windows Live sign-in attempts. Then once I did get in the Limited Tech Preview for Live Mesh Mac Client was not available. I finally grabbed it and have been pretty impressed.
I had an initial issue getting logged in from the Mac Live Mesh application with some 100% Microsoft error number … thanks very helpful. I managed to get logged in by quitting the application and then restarting. Some people have also said to clean out your Safari cookies, which sounds just crazy enough ;).
I am not sure if this is kosher but anyways here is the Live Mesh Developer’s Preview Mac Client dmg file for those who can’t seem to get a hold of it elsewhere. It is such a useful piece of software expecially for those like me who work on a PC and use a MAC at home to keep things up to date that I wanted to make sure as many people as possible use it so it continues.
