I was wondering if it's possible to shadow copy a file if it's viewed on another computer but haven't been stored.

if the program you use for viewing doesn't create a temporary copy of the file on a local drive, there won't be any shadow copy of that file.

How do you view it? Ho do you get access to that other computer?
