2 laptops stolen - best way to use Foldershare to wipe the files?

Hi,

I had 2 laptops stolen over the weekend that both had Foldershare installed
on them, running under my account. In the slim chance that someone manages
to log on to these accounts, what's the best way to use Foldershare to wipe
the files? The only thing I could think of was to move everything out of my
libraries with my 3rd PC, then next time the 2 stolen laptops log on, then
everything will be deleted too?

Any thoughts?

Many thanks.

Sorry for your loss. Even if FS starts automatically and logs in to your
FS account, FS will not actually wipe or delete anything - it will merely
move the library files from their locations in the library folders to the
FS Trash folder.

I suppose it's a slighly less obvious location than the Documents folder
though...

What if you keep the files but somehow make them all zero length? IIRC,
FolderShare doesn't put the old versions in the Trash.

After putting a copy of the files somewhere, of course.

Of course, I can't test this, because THE NEW VERSION DOESN'T WORK!!!

Ahem, sorry. Calmer now.

Update: after 24 hours, I'm finally able to sign in. Super.
