Other users active on a file are not marked with an orange box RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am sharing a file with a number of colleagues. If I look at the folders tab of my Live Mesh toolbar widget (on my actual desktop) I can see that two users (a colleague and myself) are both active on a given folder. When I access that folder (still on my actual desktop), there is an orange box next to my name but there is none next to my colleague's name. The same is true on his end.

  • I don't share files with other IDs, so I can't tell you if this is expected behavior or not for the Live Mesh bar that is added to the Explorer window for Mesh folders. As for the "widget" I assume you mean the Live Mesh Notifier that appears when you click the Live Mesh icon in the system tray.

    You may want to submit a bug report:

    Note that you may not receive a response to the bug report, though. It will be transferred to the internal system to be assigned to the appropriate development group.
