So I got the fateful email (Windows Live Mesh going away--forced onto Skydrive).
Big whoop, I said--Google indicated there was a way around the "one folder" restriction. So I set up everything by using the command "mklink /j D:\SkyDrive\SomeFolder" "D:\My Stuff\Documents\SomeFolder"
That worked. On one PC.
I try to do that on the second PC on which I want to sync files and SkyDrive tells me that I can't use these folders because "You already have a folder by this name in the same location."
If I just tell it to "sync," it creates actual copies of the files rather than using the links I created on the other computer. Confirmed using this
which spits out a handy list of junctions in a directory.
Any way around this?
