Hi,

I am wondering if anyone has worked with the following applications/services?

  1. MS Live Mesh Beta
  2. MS Sync Toy
  3. MS FolderShare

I am looking for advise.

I have one laptop, one UMPC (HTC Shift), one Windows Mobile Device.

I want a way eventually to sync files between all the devices (Live Mesh does not support Win Mobile yet), most of the files are a combo of Office files, PDF's and music files.

I am using Live Mesh on Shift (in Vista) and laptop, seem to work OK, it is still beta and not perfect, not bad for a beta and has great promise.

I have read some info on Sync Toy and it seems to do a similar job, I am guessing it does not have the option of logging into mesh to get files and will not support Windows Mobile device

I have also looked at Foldershare and it seem more basic than other 2 above.

Any advice, I do not want to install other apps if not needed.

I think you want to stick with Live Mesh, which will soon have a Windows Mobile client as well - although you can easily access it from a mobile browser and download or upload files.

SyncToy will synchornise files between folders and drives, while FolderShare will do it between clients - but don't expect anything new on FolderShare which I believe will be completely replaced with Live Mesh.
