FileCloud Helper Service

You can use the FileCloud Helper service to perform the following important functions on Network folders:

  • Handle NTFS Permission checks for Network Folders configured with NTFS permissions (Only needed under some conditions after v12.0)
  • Provide an indexed search of Network Folders
  • Allow content search of documents for Network Folders

Starting with 12.0
If you are running FileCloud on a Windows Server, you do not need the Helper Service for NTFS permission checks as the Web Server itself can perform access checks.
If you are running FileCloud on a Linux Server, you will still need the Helper Service to perform NTFS permission checks.
