Hello, I've an app that's running on a machine and saving logs 24/7 to a text file located on the C: drive. I want to access this text file from another machine on the same network connected locally. From the second machine I can only view a shared drive across the network. The app does not have a feature to change the location of the text file. So I created a shortcut file to the original text file and placed in on the network drive. But when I view the shortcut file from another machine, the text file is empty. I guess that way doesn't work. Anyway I've to find a way to clone the original file sitting on the C: drive to the network drive in a way that the duplicated text file will always be updated just like the original one, on going. Without using admin rights. Thank you for your help.
