Default WU question

is it possible to continue a started WU on another computer even when the other computer already finished that WU 2 days ago?

I started a WU on my dad's Athlon 1.2 and I would like to copy the current WU to my XP 2500 so that it can be completed before 1/6

My XP 2500 already finished to WU 2 days ago, so if I finish the current WU on my XP will I get my points or not?

ok thx, I knew that you could copy the whole folder but I wasn't shure about the points. I already copied the folder to my pc at work last week with another WU to fold during my working hours, I don't have any internet restrictions but I was unable to download a WU at work.

as far as I know it wouldn't work.

The server gives the specific WU to that particular pc and knows which WU is send back to the server.

Your 2nd pc will finish the wu but i'll doubt it if you get points

mmmh, maybe I better take no risks and I will stop on my Xp just before 100%, copy the folder back and let the Athlon finish it.

that's not the same as :

PC1 working on WU 30% => Copie the folder to PC2 and finish the last 70% of it (you'll get no points)


You JMKe get points because your work pc has finished that WU and you upload the wu's on a different pc.
