Windows Live Sync has arrived

Posted by David Hunter at 10:24 AM ET.

Fulfilling a November promise, Microsoft’s Windows Live Sync service for sharing and synchronizing files "in the cloud" was launched yesterday replacing FolderShare:

We’ve been hard at work on the new software, and we’re pleased to report that the new Windows Live Sync is now available for Windows and the Mac.

We’ve listened to your feedback, and Sync will continue to offer the same great service as FolderShare, along with several new features:

  • 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.

There are more details in the Live Sync FAQ and yes, the question is still pending as to how this ultimately relates to Microsoft’s Live Mesh which performs a similar function.
