Windows 7: Why do folders synced with SkyDrive on Live Mesh not appear online?

Why do folders synced with SkyDrive on Live Mesh not appear online?


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 two different SkyDrives and is there any way to get them in the same place?

SkyDrive and Live Mesh are two different things. SkyDrive is for storing and sharing photos and documents. Live Mesh is an online backup solution and is private to you. They are quite separate.

I run a business out of my apartment. For over a year I've been using Mesh to sync files, Office Live to share/store them, and Logmein free for remote desktop connections. I would use the built in mesh client more often but it doesn't have enough options for manipulating the color settings for...
