We've been listening to your feedback here and on the forum, and made a number of bug fixes and changes to better suit you. The update will be published later today. You may notice a slowdown in service or some display issues (missing icons, folders slow or not synchronizing) while the servers update. If you are still seeing these problems after the 20th, please report them!

What we fixed


· News not appearing until a second person has logged in.

  • I got my invite over the weekend.  Ditched Foldershare and am now using Mesh and I'm very impressed.

  • Could you let us know when UAC ... might ... be ready (just a heads up... like "we hope to get it in the next week (month, year?)"

    Oh yeah, btw... If you turn on UAC... install mesh... set it to auto run... uninstall UAC... it still runs even though you don't thinik it does :)

    I can log into my home machine via the remote desktop part... (which is Vista with UAC turned off), the only part that isn't working is the folder sync stuff.



  • I was keen to see what this was all about, I'm very impressed.

    I see very big potential for this, it will help me slove issues with my parents computer once i add them ( there some 400kms away from me), using the remote conection technlology.

    Install went well no issues so far, just getting use to it.

    Here's a great vid for you all,
