Using a shared folder on another computer in SharePoint Workspace 2010

If you add your account to another computer, your shared folders will be listed among your workspaces in the Launchbar under Not on this computer when the list is sorted by category. To download a shared folder, right-click it in the list and then click Get Workspace. The shared folder gets downloaded to your computer if you are logged in to your account on another computer that has this shared folder, or if another member of the shared folder is online.

Tip:  If you enabled the workspace property Download automatically onto all my computers, the shared folder will automatically get downloaded to your computer the first time you log in to your account.

Once the shared folder is downloaded, you can select it to open it. SharePoint Workspace prompts you to specify the folder location in which to synchronize the folder content.

If you have not yet added your account to another computer, you can begin this procedure from any shared folder. Click Invite my other computers in the Synchronization Tasks pane and follow the instructions in the Use Account on Another Computer dialog box. If you have already added your account to another computer, clicking Invite my other computers will automatically enable the workspace property option Download automatically onto all my computers.
