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 http://sync.live.com/ , which is by the way still in Wave 2 design.
Thanks to LiveSide.
