Re: Share files

@malonetony83 You can't share sync with multiple users. However if your wife's device is logged in under your user you will be able to share those files via sync.

@malonetony83 ... Concerning sharing of files (data or video) with others, @Tyler_W is absolutely on point.

 

The only way to share files is to have another user (your wife or others) install Mozy Sync using your account login credentials.  Anyone using a Mozy Sync installation with your account credentials has access to files in the Mozy Sync folder.  One important point is that no file should be opened on two or more computers at the same time.  The result could be file corruption

 

Personally, I use Mozy Sync to keep files in the Mozy Sync folder on a desktop computer and a notebook computer in sync.

That is correct @malonetony83.  With Mozy Sync it is not possible to provide someone with a secure link for access to a specific file or folder. 

 

I know this has been a requested feature addition but someone from Mozy will need to provide you with an update on the request status.

Re: Share files

@malonetony83

 

It appears though this thread has a solution and I have marked the appropriate thread as so.  However I would like to clarify further how Mozy Sync works.  

 

When Mozy Sync is installed and linked to a user and any and all data that is placed into the Mozy Sync folder will be uploaded to the user's "Sync container" on our servers in the cloud.  Any other computers that have Sync installed may use the same user email and password to connect to the same "Sync container".  When this happens any other computers connected to the "Sync container" may make changes to all the files and add or remove files from the "Sync container".

 

In other words, any changes, additions, or removal of files in the Mozy Sync folder will push or upload those changes to the "Sync container" in the cloud.  All computers connected to the same "Sync container" will receive the changes in Mozy Sync folder on each computer so the data in each computers Sync folder is always the same.

 

I hope this post helps clarify how Mozy Sync works.

 

Please post any questions or comments.  

 

Thank you,

Jared
