I'm not sure I'm believing your answer.
This morning my PC has been on for 2 1/2 hours. I looked at Task Manager
and it shows FOLDERSHARE.EXE has performed over 465,000 "other I/Os" (and
steadily climbing) totalling over 11,000,000 bytes (and climbing). I haven't
made any changes to my shared files in 2 days and Foldershare shows no
current activity going on.
Foldershare is a great product, but can you please investigate this
seemingly unwarranted resource consumption?
