Personal storage is a location in the My Files area where users can store files (files in personal storage are maintained on Filr servers; unlike Net Folders or Home folders, files in personal storage are not synchronized from an external file system). Personal storage is displayed differently depending on whether users have a Home folder enabled. If Home folders are enabled, the Home folder is displayed in each user’s My Files area. (For more information about Home folders in Filr, see Section 5.2, Configuring Home Folders for Display in the My Files Area.)
If Personal storage is enabled and Home folders are also enabled: The Home folder is displayed in the user’s My Files area at the same level of any other folder the user decides to add to the My Files area.
If Personal storage is disabled and Home folders are enabled: The name of the Home folder is displayed at the top of the folder listing and the view lists only the content of the Home folder.
If Personal storage is enabled and Home folders are disabled: Only files that the user adds via one of the Filr clients are displayed in the My Files area.
If both Personal storage and Home folders are disabled: Users cannot see files or add files in the My Files area.
