Here are a couple of good questions I received from David (newsgroup user):
1. [David] when I go to trash wouldn't I just look for entries between 12-3
and 12-6 ? or could other dates have been deleted?
[Anton] If you are looking at last date Accessed (as opposed to Create,
Modified), then the dates should be between 12/3 and 12/6. However, because
we were unable to verify this 100%, the safest thing is still to look
through all the files you have in your trash folder.
2. [David] when a file looks like this "~$squito magnet revision rtf ( one
of my docs) is that considered and foreign symbol to look for ?
[Anton] No. That is not considered a special symbol. These files are usually
temp files created by applications for backup and changes tracking purposes.
When you close the corresponding word / rtf file, that temp file will often
be deleted from your system. FolderShare will notice that deletion and mark
that file deleted on other computers as well.
3. [David] when i have two computers i trust i have to check each or is
there one trash can per acct that all things feed into?
[Anton] FolderShare keeps files in sync between your different computers so
usually, when you restore files on one computer, they will be replicated to
the other computers as well. Having said that, because your computers might
not have been connected at the same time, it is possible that some files
will not be restored so the best way would be
1. restore on one computer
2. wait until your computers are synced
3. Look through other computers' trash folders
4. [David] I understand foldershare picks up any changes and updates both
files( great), but if remove a block of docs will it construe that as
deleting- and thus delete them from the other computer?
[Anton] If you move files away from a shared library, these files will be
deleted on other computers as well, as FolderShare attempts to keep your
latest changed in sync with the other folders.
Hope this helps,
