So are "libraries" the same as "folders" or two different things since
you use both in the same post: "sync up to 20 folders with 20,000
files each" -- "synchronization for up to 20 libraries and 20,000
files" -- makes me wonder.. again.. whether in order to be hired at MS
you have to pass a course in 'confusion' first... LOL
