The FileCloud Sync app on Windows shows overlay icons on files and folders to indicate their sync status.
The overlay icons appear on all files and folders inside MyFiles, Network Shares, Team Folders, and Shared with Me.
The following icon overlays are currently supported.
|No Icon||File or Folder is new and has not been synced to the sync server.|
|File or Folder has been synced to server and is up to date.|
|File has been modified and has not yet been synced to the server.|
|File is in conflict because changes have been made both in the server and locally. It needs to be resolved by the user.|
File is in a lock state and the owner has to release for other users to update it.

The file or folder is copied into the My Files sync folder and automatically synced to the remote FileCloud server.
