The Novell Filr desktop application enables users to work with Filr files on their personal workstations. The Novell Filr desktop application synchronizes files from the Filr server with the workstation, allowing users to manage Filr files from the file system on their computers. For more information about the Novell Filr desktop application, see the Novell Filr Desktop Application for Windows Quick Start and the Novell Filr Desktop Application for Mac Quick Start.
As a Filr administrator, you must enable file synchronization for the Filr desktop application in order for users to take advantage of this functionality. There are also optional administrative procedures that you might want to perform when configuring the Filr desktop application.
If you make configuration changes, users must log out of the application and log in again in order to see the changes.
IMPORTANT:For optimal performance, users should not configure the Filr desktop application to synchronize more than 10,000 total files, or to synchronize individual files that are larger than 1 GB to their workstations. (These numbers require the use of the Filr 1.0.2 desktop application.)
