Microsoft Releases FolderShare Beta

Microsoft has just released the beta of FolderShare. The idea behind FolderShare is pretty simple and its main purpose is to Keep files in sync across your computers, Share folders with friends, Access your files from any computer. FolderShare does not store data remotely so to be able to Sync you should have a broadband connection which isn’t hard to come by these days.

Microsoft released a fresh beta of FolderShare with an interface that is heavily borrowed from Skydrive. With all the bells and whistles and Windows Live branding FolderShare seems to be ready for primetime.

Here are a few screenshots of FolderShare in action :

FolderShare is useful software specially if you work over many computers. I know a few people who actually use FolderShare regularly, and even I’m planning to use it more often. The other good thing FolderShare is that it is the only program that can sync between different platforms, yeah Windows and Mac OSX.

Give FolderShare a try and drop in your comments on it.

Hmmm, .mac has had this feature since the release of Leopard……..

Once again windows has their own spinoff of a feature that Apple introduced ages ago.

Yawn … does it really matter. I mean, are you arguing that nobody should inovate on one platform if it was done somewhere else earlier on another?

The Mac is the best crap is soooo dull.
