Disappearing computers

Hi

Managed to get it up and running on 4 computers all running xp all with
seperate windows live accounts.

But now some of the other computers are disappearing completely, forcing me
to send new emails, and then they have to go through the whole sign up
process again
any ideas what is causing this ?

I used to have a fine head of hair, but as I am forced pull it out its not
looking too healthy ;-)

Sorry, this is not really a reply. I just can't get the new question
function to work and I wanted to say that I am having the same problems as
everyone else. The old foldershare worked fine. I used it for years. I have
now installed over and over again this Windows Live version on my desktop,
and it never shows up--either on the desktop toolbar or as a synced computer
on my laptops. The laptops are not syncing with each other either. I am
running Vista on the desktop and one laptop, and XL on the other laptop. The
whole system is not working obviously.
But what do we do? I am really dependent on foldershare now. Is there some
site that tells you clearly how to fix this so it works?

Hi Marsha,

After you install Sync you need to launch the program and log in. To do
this, go to Start Menu -> All Programs -> Windows Live -> Windows Live Sync.

Once you've launched Sync and logged in on all your machines, it will start
syncing your old FolderShare libraries.

Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Mike,

I'm not sure what's causing your issue - what do you mean by "the computers
are disappearing"? Are they showing up on the synchronized folder pages on
sync.live.com and then later not showing up?

It sounds like you're using the invite feature, which is really meant for
sharing folders with other people. If you're just sharing data across
computers you own, try using the same Live ID to sign into Sync on all your
computers - that should make your life easier.

Hi Rachel

Thanks for the reply,

"I'm not sure what's causing your issue - what do you mean by "the computers

sync.live.com and then later not showing up?"

Thats exactly what happened, (and it is 4 seperate users.) For some reason
two of them disappeared a little earlier. However I resent them invitations
and they
are connected again just fine.

I'll put it down to gremlins..or monday morning blues

It really is a pretty wonderful piece of software
