You download workspace data from another computer or workspace member after you restore your Groove account from a backup or log in to your account on another computer.
References to your workspaces appear in the Launchbar or the Workspace List and are categorized under "Not On This Computer" if you're sorting the list by status. Regardless of your sort option, the icon for these workspaces appears dimmed.
Icon for workspace on this computer.
Icon for workspace on other computers.
To download workspace data:
- Select the workspace you want in the list.
- In the Common Tasks pane, click Get Workspace.
The workspace gets downloaded to your computer if any of the following conditions are true:
- Groove is currently online on another computer on which you have your account and this workspace.
- Another workspace member is online and running Groove.
Groove will always download the workspace from one of your other computers (if available) before downloading from another workspace member. If there are currently no other computers or workspace members from which to download the workspace, the request will stay queued until one or the other is available.
Note If the selected workspace was created in a version of Groove prior to Groove 2007, you see a Get Workspace From... drop-down menu with options to get the workspace from another computer or workspace member.
