I just migrated from Live Sync to the superseding Live Mesh (the Live Essentials 2011 version). In Live Sync I could choose the destination folder when adding a folder to sync to another computer, but Live Mesh automatically puts in it %userprofile%\foldername. I don't even want it on that partition. Is there a way to change this, or does perchance Live Mesh play well with symlinks/junctions, so I can circumvent this unwanted behaviour that way?
Additionally, once you have remote access enabled on both PCs, you can do it from one PC. Set up the share on PC-A and press OK without selecting PC-B (as said above). Then go to "Remote" at the top on Live Mesh on PC-A. Remote access PC-B. While in remote access, double click on the Live-Mesh icon in the task bar through the remote window (so, as if you were physically at PC-B) and set up the share allowing you to choose your destination folder.
Still round-about, but can be done from one single location anywhere in the world as Sync was before.
Okay, it seems you can do this, in a non-obvious roundabout way.
If you do NOT select a computer on which to share the synced folder, and just press OK, and then go to the other computer, open up Live Mesh, and click on the not-yet-shared folder (it'll be visible), you can then choose a destination.
IMO, it feels very backwards and actually somewhat dangerous (it felt like this would screw things up) to do it this way, but oh well.
In FolderShare/Live Sync, the process was a lot smoother, and you could perform the whole process on the same computer, since you browsed the file systems of all devices in the web-based UI.
Short version: Just move the folder; but stop the sync first
First stop syncing the folder
1.1. Click Select Devices:
1.2. Uncheck this computer, and click OK:
Move the folder:
Start syncing again
3.1. Click Sync this folder:
3.2. Select the folder in its new location and click Sync:
The content is now syncing in its new location:
