Microsoft Windows Live Sync will now be known as Windows Live Mesh. The cloud-syncing service will also offer users more storage -- more than doubling from 2GB to 5GB.

Microsoft has decided that Windows Live Sync, its cloud-syncing service, will receive a name change—actually, make that a name reversion—to Windows Live Mesh. In addition, the service will now offer 5GB of free cloud-storage space, up from 2GB, and the ability to sync hidden files.
