This is a reminder for all the Windows Live Mesh users that the service will be retired on February 13, 2013. On this date, all your files stored on the could will be deleted. And the folders you synced to online storage for Mesh, called "Mesh synced storage" or "SkyDrive synced storage," will no longer be available through Mesh or devices.live.com.

So make sure you save all the files on your computer you synced online. If you're still syncing the files between your computer and Mesh online storage, the latest versions should already be on your computer. But if you stopped syncing them on your computer, or if you uninstalled Mesh, follow these steps to access your files:
  • Go to http://devices.live.com
  • Click View synced folders
  • Click a folder to view its contents
  • Click each file to download it
Microsoft advises Live Mesh users to install SkyDrive to sync their files.

Live Mesh and SkyDrive, both use Microsoft account. How difficult it is for Microsoft to move Live Mesh's files to SkyDrive automatically?

In the time it has taken for Microsoft to make up their mind on cloud storage, I've long since decided to settle on DropBox.  Does everything I need, doesn't cost me a nickel, runs on all my PCs, through all my work proxies, and has a client for iOS and Android. 


I mean, how difficult is this for the world's foremost software company to figure out?

My only issue with Dropbox is its low storage space. When SkyDrive launched, I installed it on my PC immediately for getting 25 GB of storage space, where as Dropbox gives you 2 GB only.
