Windows 7: Live Mesh won't let me delete folders!

Live Mesh won't let me delete folders!

I had some folders set up to sync between my wife's computer (32 Bit)and mine (64Bit)and I would like to delete all folders that are synced. I don't find a way to do that. I even tried removing Live Mesh on both computers and doing a reinstall and the same folders show up in the Sync window.
How can I do a complete removal of all folders and start all over again?

Could you break the sync, delete the entire folder that is set to sync, and then recreate it. Then you can readd it to your Live Mesh account?

When the folders show up on the Sync window I can't do anything to them. I tried double clicking on them but delete is not on the list. I don't see anywhere where I have any options. I suspect the info is in the Registry but I don't dare do any editing without detailed instructions.

When you double-click the Mesh icon, click the Go To Live Devices link that shows on the pop up. You can remove the sync option there, or the entire device. Then you can always delete the folders on both computers (after deleting it online from both). Once you create a new folder, you can set that folder to sync on both computers.

Glad to hear it. I was starting to reread my own instructions and thought they were horribly lacking.

Hi, This probably isn't an error, but a problem all the same. I've synced my documents to SkyDrive using Windows Live Mesh without a problem. However, to access these files with a web browser I have to go to 'devices', not the more prominent 'SkyDrive' tab in Hotmail. Why is this? Why are there...
