Windows Live Sync released

The former Windows Live FolderShare has been renamed to Windows Live Sync and released to the public. When I installed the new client, however, I couldn’t find any differences to the old FolderShare, except for the Wave 3 sign-in wizard.

The team reports some enhancements in its new Live Sync blog:

  • Higher file limits—up to 20 synchronized folders (formerly known as libraries) with up to 20,000 files in each one.
  • Integration with Windows Live ID.
  • Integration with the Recycle Bin.
  • Unicode support.
  • More languages for Windows (46 in all).
  • And lots of bug fixes.

Oh – I nearly forgot: There is also a client for Mac available on the download site. (Thanks Bram for reminding me!)

If you want to check out Windows Live Sync, go to , which is by the way still in Wave 2 design.

Thanks to LiveSide.
