Sync Your Live Writer Drafts With Mesh

If you’re a blogger, then you’re probably familiar with the Windows Live Writer program, arguably one of the best blogging tools out there. However, because this program is a desktop software application, the drafts you saved on one computer aren’t available on all your machines…that is, unless you have Live Mesh. With Live Mesh installed, you can sync your Live Writer drafts between all the devices in your Mesh. For me, this was a no-brainer. I sync all my documents, so the drafts folder just came with the rest of them.

Those of you with a work computer, though, might be a little more picky about what files and folders are being synced from work to home. In that case, you’ll want to just mesh up the Drafts folder itself. The location of the Windows Live Drafts folder is C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\My Weblog Posts\Drafts. At work, just add that folder to your Mesh and when you return home, sync up that folder with the same one on your PC.

(Thanks for the tip, Rakki!)
