How to Determine which Group a PC Belongs to

It sometimes becomes necessary to figure out which SafeHouse group is installed on a specific machine. The first thing to realize, however, is that SafeHouse volumes contain group information too, and it's possible that the SafeHouse program files on particular machine belong to one group, and one of the volume files belongs to a different group. This is possible due to the fact that volume files might be copied to a different machine after being created, and their original group association stays with them for life.

System Tray Utility

To find out which group a specific installation of SafeHouse belongs to, look at the bottom of the About tab in the SafeHouse system tray utility.

The group named here is the group which will be assigned to all new volumes created on this machine.

If nothing's there, then that copy of SafeHouse does not belong to a group.

Password Reset Dialog

To find out which group a specific SafeHouse volume belongs to, look at the contact information on its respective Password Reset dialog. Keep in mind that as volume files get copied back and forth between PCs, it is entirely possible to have volumes from multiple groups hosted on the same machine -- which is fully supported by SafeHouse.

See how to Launch the Password Reset Dialog.
