Exactly one Default Set exists in FileCloud - it cannot be deleted, renamed or disabled, but administrators can customize attributes and permissions. Out of the box it is shipped with a single predefined attribute of Array type - Tags.
- Custom Metadata Set - a fully customizable set of metadata, defined by the administrator.
