Just a little. Someone mentioned SugarSync to me the other day .. may have to take a peek at it.
With the loss of Live Mesh (see Live Mesh.. We Barely Knew Ye), I’ve had to do a few things a little differently. Besides reliable sync, local storage and pinpoint sharing accuracy, two of the nice features of Live Mesh included were Email Signature and Favorites sync. with Mesh, you could simply click a property box, and those items get synced across any of the systems in the Mesh. From the looks of it, these are not support as easily In SkyDrive.
I haven’t solved the Email signature sync, but here’s how I resolved the Favorites sync:
Your IE Favorites are stored in a personal directory called Favorites in the \Users folder of your system. The simple way to ensure you can access your favorites would be to sync this folder. Under Mesh, the folder was left in place and connected into the Mesh. With SkyDrive, it’s a bit different .. instead of moving to the mountain, we move the mountain to us, In Windows Explorer (not IE):
- Navigate to C:\Users\yourname\.
- Right click the Favorites folder.
- Click on the ‘Location’ tab.
- Browse to a folder underneath the root of your SkyDrive folder.
In a few moments, SkyDrive will obligingly copy your Favorites folder, making it available to other systems. The process is the same on the other system .. navigate to the folder as above and point to the Favorites folder beneath the SkyDrive root. You might see some duplicates of system- or OEM-created shortcuts, so replace with care.
I’ll keep looking for a way to sync Email signatures and advise. For the moment, I keep them in a SkyDrive-synced folder in a Word document, which works well enough.
