Microsoft nabs wee FolderShare

Windows Live lives

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Microsoft is rounding out the infrastructure of its live software "service" with the acquisition of synchronization and remote access service FolderShare.

FolderShare helps customers access information across multiple devices without sending data in large emails, uploading or burning data to CD or DVD. The service allows customers to synchronize data for access via a browser.

The software is very easy to configure and proves quite handy in keeping files synched between Macs and PCs, if that's your thing. Although, the Mac software has mysteriously gone missing for the moment.

"The Mac version is currently unavailable, but will be back up by this weekend. More details will follow in the next few days," FolderShare says on its site.

Microsoft said FolderShare is suited to personal and small business use, and helps extend the Windows Live mission of giving customers access to their information "anytime, anywhere and on multiple devices, unifying their overall experience."

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. FolderShare is owned and operated by Austin, Texas-based ByteTaxi.®
