Techopedia Explains Windows Live Mesh

The Windows Live Mesh utility is primarily a file syncing and collaboration solution designed to keep the selected content on all the synced devices similar and up to date. Windows Live Mesh provides syncing between different workstations running Live Mesh client applications – even if they are not on the same network – and update changes made on any workstation automatically on the other when they are connected to the Internet.

Windows Live Mesh’s online and offline client application can be integrated with SkyDrive to back up and sync files and folders on cloud storage. These folders are globally accessible over the Internet, providing remote access to data, as well as remote program execution and complete access on the remote workstation.
