Viewing an IRM protected file in My Syncplicity

To view an information rights management (IRM) protected file, you must open the web page of the secured shared link. You may be required to enter a password, which you would have received separately from the person who created the shared link. Afterwards, the landing page displays. This page contains the file name, expiration time, a message from the person who protected the file, and your permission.

If the View button is displayed on the web page, select it to view the document online. Select Download to download the IRM protected file locally.

NOTE:  IRM-protected MS Office files from the web can be edited, only if your administrator has granted edit permissions. Keep in mind, the edited file must be emailed back to the user and it cannot be saved locally.
