FileCloud Drive sets a limit on the size of files you can download (with exceptions for some file types) to 50MB by default.
File types that this limit does not apply to are: .txt, .rtf, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, and .indd.
This default limit is set for the following reasons:
- FileCloud Drive must download a file from the server before it can be read, modified, or updated.
- Windows can pre-fetch files to improve user experience and can request files that are not actively used.
- This activity can sometimes cause heavy bandwidth usage.
- To limit this, FileCloud Drive has a maximum file size limit setting to prevent downloading large files.
To change the download limit size, slide the pointer to the left or right.
To disable the download limit, click the Enable download limit slider until it appears gray.
Drive-related system toast notifications and floating status notifications are enabled by default. To disable them and disable status pop-up windows, click the Mute all notifications slider so that it turns gray.
Use the automatic lock feature to lock an Office file on the FileCloud server while it is being edited by one user to prevent another user from editing it at the same time.
By default, the automatic lock feature is disabled. To enable it, click the Lock Office files automatically on edit slider.
For more information about automatic locks in Drive, see Automatic Locking in FileCloud Drive.
To open the folder that stores Drive log files, click the Get logs button.
If you experience a lag between the time you perform an action and the time it is committed it to the server, click Commit Pending Changes to Server to commit the changes to the server now.
