"Keep your latest files with you."Ever realized you needed a document that was on a different computer from the one you were on? With Windows Live Mesh, you can access your files from anywhere.
Windows Live Mesh is a free service designed to help you synchronize (The process of uploading and downloading information between two or more computers so that the information on each computer is identical.) files across all the computers you use, share files and photos with friends and colleagues, and remotely access your files from any other computer connected to the Internet.
If you have more than one computer, you can create personal folders (A synchronized folder that you create for yourself. Files in a personal synchronized folder are not shared with other people and only the owner of the folder can access them. If you have more than one computer, you might create a personal synchronized folder to share files between them.) to synchronize files between them.
You can also share files with friends or colleagues when you create or connect your computer to a shared folder (A synchronized folder that you have been invited to share, or a folder that you have invited others to share.
Files in a shared synchronized folder are accessed and can be changed by more than one person. The owner must invite other people to use the folder in order for them to have permission to access it.) .
You can synchronize your photos and videos in Windows Live Photo Gallery, and keep them up-to-date on different computers, or access them from any computer that's connected to the Internet.
Sync is a peer-to-peer network (Two or more computers that share a direct connection.) with security features. Only you and people that you invite can view or access files in your synchronized folders. To help increase privacy, Sync encrypts all files exchanged over the network using AES (Advanced encryption standard.
An algorithm used for securing data transferred over the Internet.) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer is an encryption format that will help keep information secure while it is being sent across the Internet.).
Keep your documents, photos, and other files up to date on all your computers, whether PC or Mac:
Â· When you sync a folder, your latest files are right at hand even if you're working offline at the moment. You can also sync folders on SkyDrive synced storage, so you can go to the Windows Live Devices website to access them on the web from any computer. To get started, see How do I sync a folder?
Connect to your computers remotely:
Â· Leave your PC online and run its programs or get to all its files from another computer. This is handy for "emergencies" when you might be at work and need a file from home. For more information about remote connections, see What are remote connections?
Sync your program settings between computers:
Â· Keep your Internet Explorer favorites and Microsoft Office settings up to date on all your PCs.
Â· Processor: 1.6 GHz or higher
