Access files in your Mesh online storage
Windows Live Mesh was retired on February 13, 2013, and remote desktop and peer-to-peer syncing have stopped working. If you still have Mesh installed on a computer, you might see the message, "Sorry, there is a problem with the Windows Live Mesh servers."
If you still have files in your Mesh online storage (called “Mesh synced storage” or “SkyDrive synced storage”) make sure you have copies of them on your computer. On August 13, 2013, all files in Mesh online storage will be permanently deleted.
Save copies of the files in your Mesh online storage
The latest versions of your files should already be on your computer. But if you stopped syncing them on your computer before Mesh was retired, or if you uninstalled Mesh, follow these steps to access your files:
Go to the temporary Synced folders page. (You need to use this special link because the address has changed and other links won’t work.)
Click View all synced folders.
Click a folder to view its contents.
Click each file to download it.

To keep and share files in the cloud moving forward, try SkyDrive. You get 7 GB of free online storage space.
To sync files automatically across your computers and the cloud, install the SkyDrive desktop app for Windows on your PC or the SkyDrive app for Mac on your Mac and drag files or folders to your SkyDrive folder. If you install the SkyDrive desktop app on PC running Windows, you can also fetch any of your files that are on that PC by going to SkyDrive.com from any computer.
