Q. Is there an easy way to sync my Internet Explorer favorites, Microsoft Office settings, and other desktop data between machines and into the cloud?

A. Windows Live Mesh 2011 is available. It provides an easy way to synchronize your IE favorites, Office settings, and selectable NTFS folders (up to 5GB) to SkyDrive, and the data can then be synchronized between all machines for the user. Download Mesh 2011 from Microsoft. Once it's installed, it's easy to configure which folders are synchronized.

Live Mesh

You can view all the devices that are being synchronized through Mesh and can even view the content that's synchronized through a web interface—you get access everywhere, even when you're on a machine that's not running Mesh.
