Skydrive / Windows Live Mesh queries

*Will you be able to upload folders to Skydrive? I want to create a PHOTOS folder in Skydrive, then upload my 160 individual photo folders to it. Possible?

*What is Windows Live Mesh?

*I'd like to make it so any photos or docs I add to my hard drive, automastically go to Skydrive.

Is that part of the functionality?

What is: SkyDrive Wave 5 M3 (version 16.3)?

yes

*What is Windows Live Mesh?

live mesh is a way of keeping files in sync between two computers (or more). for example, let's say you had a laptop and a desktop - every file you save on the laptop to mesh, automagically appears on your desktop too. there's also a feature that lets you connect to your meshed pc from anywhere on the internet, allowing you to access files, run programs etc.

*I'd like to make it so any photos or docs I add to my hard drive, automastically go to Skydrive.

i believe you can set it up like that by changing your default save locations to skydrive folders. although i would prefer to keep a local copy too.

What is: SkyDrive Wave 5 M3 (version 16.3)?

this is a new version of skydrive coming out soon, with a few more features.

That is already available in SkyDrive but not Mesh.
Sorry just checked. You cant drag and drop a folder but you can drag and drop files.

Sorry, SkyDrive can't upload folders. Please upload the files that are contained in the folder instead.

I use Google for everything except mail (Yahoo) but am in the process of moving EVERYTHING to Microsoft. very impressed with what they are doing.

People not being able to get into their accounts. Lots of spam. It may have improved since then however it was a year or two ago.
