Folders Were Scrambled - Moved Around RRS feed

  • Question

  • I shared a folder called SS_Share that contained a folder called 03_Clients in which I have several client files and sub-folders.  I sent a link to a colleague and he downloaded the file via mesh sharing to his computer yesterday.  Today I am looking at the folder and many of the client folder and their sub-folders have moved to under the SS_Share folder.  In the SS_Share folder there should only be 03_Clients and now there are 113 folders.  It is going to take a very long time to put all the folders in the placed that they belong and I am not sure if I lost any data.  When I check the Live Desktop I see that same as my computer.

    I just checked my Recycle Bin and it looks like all the folders that are in the SS_Share folders are also in the Recycle Bin!!!!.  What is going on?

    Any ideas?  Any help? Any way to go back in time? Any way to make sure this does not happen again?

  • Did you share the folder with the other person giving them full rights to the folder? If so, any changes that they make to the folder will be reflected on your PC and the Live Desktop.
    When you say that you sent a link, what did you do - invite them to the folder or did you also provide them with your LiveID?
