Microsoft acquires Foldershare

Antony Savvas

Microsoft has continued its  move into on-demand applications with the acquisition of the Foldershare service. Foldershare gives users file synchronisation and remote access to data using multiple devices.

The service was acquired from US-based ByteTaxi for an undisclosed sum, but Microsoft said existing users could still access the service at www.foldershare.com.

Earlier this month Microsoft announced plans to launch its on-demand Windows Live service next year, which will give users integrated e-mail, instant messaging, peer-to-peer file sharing and enhanced search facilities.
