Reminder: Windows Live Mesh Will be No More February 13, 2013 (Skydrive)January 15, 2013 1 Comment
Microsoft is reminding us once again that after February 13, 2013, Windows Live Mesh will be no more and Skydrive will be taking its place.
The Windows Live Mesh and SkyDrive teams:
Dear Mesh customer,
Recently we released the latest version of SkyDrive, which you can use to:
- Choose the files and folders on your SkyDrive that sync on each computer.
- Access your SkyDrive using a brand new app for Android v2.3 or the updated apps for Windows Phone, iPhone, and iPad.
- Collaborate online with the new Office Web apps, including Excel forms, co-authoring in PowerPoint and embeddable Word
Currently 40% of Mesh customers are actively using SkyDrive and based on the positive response and our increasing focus on improving personal cloud storage, it makes sense to merge SkyDrive and Mesh into a single product for anytime and anywhere access for files. As a result, we will retire Mesh on February 13, 2013. After this date, some Mesh functions, such as remote desktop and peer to peer sync, will no longer be available and any data on the Mesh cloud, called Mesh synced storage or SkyDrive synced storage, will be removed. The folders you synced with Mesh will stop syncing, and you will not be able to connect to your PCs remotely using Mesh.
