Another Microsoft cloud service is going down. The Redmond software-giant announced today that it will retire Windows Live Mesh on Feb. 13, 2013.

Live Mesh launched in 2008 when Microsoft’s cloud strategy was still — no pun intended — up in the air. While there was at one point up to a few million people using Live Mesh, there are only 25,000 active users on the service now and Microsoft is encouraging Live Mesh users to move their files to SkyDrive.

Microsoft certainly sees SkyDrive as its primary cloud service, touting it as “the world’s most available and versatile cloud storage service” with more than 200 million users.
