Icons for each file status

CONTENTS

Different icons are displayed according to the file status.

Default file status

By default, the files in the Sync Settings are all online-only and do not take up space on your PC. When you open a file or right-click and then set to ‘Always keep on this device’, data is downloaded, saved in the local disc, and the sync status is changed to local-only. Local-only files and folders are always downloaded and kept in sync to remain up to date.
