Remember Microsoft LiveMesh? If you do, then you already know Microsoft SkyDrive Desktop App, because it is the incarnation of Microsoft LiveMesh without the Screen share feature. Microsoft just dropped the App link on us in the Windows Store for easy reach and visibility. Note that this app is complementary to the Metro Skydrive App. With this app, you can drag-and-drop files in Windows Explorer on the desktop to SkyDrive, and your folders are synced between all computers on which you install this app with your Microsoft Account.

Come to think of it, this app is exactly the same feature as the original FolderShare App MS bought eons ago, but ditched for the Mesh version. Those of you old enough will remember MS acquired FolderShare with which you can sync any folder and browse your synced PC folders from the web. This SkyDrive Desktop application also allows you to reach your Synced PC folders anywhere from the web.

So if you haven’t done so already, go download and install this app from the Productivity Category of the store. If you can’t find it, do a search for it. Sorry, can’t share the link, MS doesn’t allow sharing desktop apps links.
