Clear Cache

FileCloud MacDrive stores locally accessed file in a local cache. This cache location will be cleared when this option is selected and the volume will be remounted. Any further access to files will cause FileCloud MacDrive to download it first. Care must be taken to make sure there are no existing application are actively using files during this operation.

Open Log FolderThis option will launch explorer window to the location containing FileCloud log files. This is used for debug purposes.
Lock Automatically on Edit

This option will lock a file on file open action and will unlock a file on file cloud action. NOTE this function is a file system level behaviour and FileCloud Drive CANNOT KNOW IF A FILE IS OPENED IN AN APPLICATION AFTER THE CONTENTS ARE READ. This also attempts to detect special cases such as Microsoft Office apps and will attempt to keep the lock enabled when a document file is edited but changes in behaviour to MS Office apps can affect this algorithm.

Mute All NotificationsFileCloud MacDrive will try to show notifications on various conditions and selecting this option will prevent those notifications from being displayed
Max Single File Limit

FileCloud MacDrive will cache a file locally when windows explorer requires it (Typically Finder will try to pre-cache files for quicker access or to display thumbnails or previews). The files are also cached on file open/copy operations. This option will set a limit to max file size that can be accessed. This is primarily meant to manage bandwidth usage .
