FileCloud Drive allows you to access files in FileCloud server the same way you access them in Windows.

If you are used to working with Windows File Explorer, you may think that changing to a Web-based UI will reduce your efficiency. Traditionally, with a Web-based UI, you have to download files, then modify them, and then upload them back to the Web UI.  This effort is eliminated when you work through FileCloud Drive. You can actually edit files the same way you edit them in Windows because the files (and folders) appear in File Explorer and are directly accessible.


This is how our files are accessible in the FileCloud Server application.  Similarly, this is how our files are accessible in a Windows PC using FileCloud Drive.

When you open one of your Drive folders, the same contents that appear in the FileCloud user portal are listed.
To help you determine how quickly you can access files:

  • Files with icons overlaid with a white check on a blue background  are cached

  • Files with icons overlaid with a blue check on a white background  are not cached.



You can access the following FileCloud options in Drive's Explorer window when you right-click on a file or folder in My Files or Network Folders:

A FileA Folder


When you right-click on a file or folder in Team Folders or Shared with Me, you also see an option to share a link with someone who already has access to the Team Folder or Shared with Me. To share a link with someone who already has access to a folder, see Sending a link from a Team Folder or Shared With Me
