Objective: I have a folder on my hard drive and I have already made a folder with the same name in Skydrive and copied all the files from hard drive to Skydrive, apparently I didn't know about linking folders capability till I saw an interesting post here:;p=112141 , I tried the same thing but I receive the error message that this solder is already existing!! so my question is how can someone sync an EXISTING folder in Skydrive with the SAME folder on hard drive? The PC is running Win7 , 64bit.

I have the same query. I want to use SkyDrive like LiveMesh, and keep my two computers (with identiacl layouts) synched with skydrive. But after I used the symboliclink on one computer successfully to create a link, when I tried the same process on second computer I get the error message that this folder already exist. Is there any method to work around it?
