how to update information to device without giving admin power RRS feed

  • Question

  • There are two computers on my live mesh currently. I want one of those computers to be able to update and change information as it happens, but for the other computer I only want it to be able to view changes as they happen. I don't want the second computer to be able to change the document I just want to update what the person viewing on that computer can see any changes that happen, but not have admin power. How can I do this

  • If I understand your request correctly, there is no way to do this if both machines are part of the same Mesh. All PCs signed into Live Mesh with the same LiveID are part of the Mesh and will sync automatically when signed in.
    You can set up a second machine with a different LiveID and invite that LiveID to share a folder or folders and only give that LiveID read rights for files that are synchronized.
