You can use a Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010
account on up to five computers. However,
you add your account to a new computer, you must install a licensed copy of SharePoint Workspace 2010 on each computer.
In this scenario, you can
access your Groove workspaces,
shared folder workspaces,
contacts, and account data from each computer on which the account is
installed. However, SharePoint workspaces
only to the computer on which you created the workspace.
To use the
same account on other computers, you must import an existing account. Do not
create a new account that has the same information as the original account. A
second account of the same name does not give you access to the data from the
first account. Also, do not reuse the same account file to import your account to more than one computer.
If you use a managed SharePoint Workspace 2010 account that is
associated with your Windows domain account, and you are logged in with that
domain account, you should automatically receive the account on the new
computer when you install and start SharePoint Workspace 2010.
If you have
an unmanaged SharePoint Workspace 2010 account, or if the account is not associated
with your domain account, you have
to manually install the SharePoint Workspace 2010 account
on the other computer. To do this, follow these steps:
- Create an
account file for use on another computer. To do this, follow these steps:
the account file to
a location where you can access it from the other
computer, such as a network drive or removable media.
- In Launchbar, click to
select the File tab, and then click
Save & Send.
- Click Send Account to Another Computer.
- Click OK. Note
the location of the account
file or change
and then click Save.
- Import the SharePoint Workspace 2010 account on another
computer. To do this, follow these steps:
- Install and then start SharePoint Workspace 2010.
- In the Account Configuration Wizard,
click Restore an Existing Account, and then click
- Click Browse, select the account
file that you
and then click Open.
- Fetch your workspace data. To do this, follow these steps
for each workspace on the Workspaces tab:
- Right-click the workspace.
- Click Get Workspace or click
Get Workspace From, and then click a source for the workspace
- This source must be online and must be running
SharePoint Workspace 2010.
- If only one source exists, the data is downloaded immediately.
For each additional computer, repeat steps 1-3. Account files contain information about the computers that the account is installed on. If you reuse the account that you created in step 1, the new computers do not synchronize with one another.
