Windows Live FolderShare Team Blog: Windows Live Sync replacing FolderShare: What you need to know

I’m glad to see FolderShare will continue, although I’m curious about the positioning, relative to Live Mesh.  See the full post for more details.  (Via LiveSide.net)

In December, we will release a new product called Windows Live Sync. You can think of it as FolderShare 2.0. It's going to look familiar and offer the same great features, plus:

  • More folders and files - sync up to 20 folders with 20,000 files each.
  • Integration with Windows Live ID - no more extra sign-in stuff to remember.
  • Integration with the Recyle Bin - no more separate Trash folder to fiddle with.
  • New client versions for both Windows and Mac. 
  • Unicode support - sync files in other languages.
