By default RushFiles list all files and folders in the sync and share solution the user is granted access to on the corporate file share.

This can be hundreds of thousands files occupying TB’s of data. Because the user can’t have all the 

corporate data on the client devices, only the files metadata information are transferred to the client device.


This way the user have access to the files but without taking up space on the local device.


Windows:

To indicate to the user that a file is not taking up disk space the file are identified with an overlay icon (a gray X).

This also indicates that the file is only accessible when the user has Internet access.
 

If the user opens a file with an X, whether it’s from inside a program or directly from the File explorer the file will be

downloaded and the grey X will be removed indicating that the user now have a local copy of the file on the computer.


If the file later is changes on the server and the version on the client computer is no longer the same as on the server,

the system will automatically remove the file from the client computer and replace it with a gray X overlay icon.


Mac:

To indicate to the user that a file is not taking up disk space the file are identified with a grey icon. 

This also indicates that the file is only accessible when the user has Internet access.


If the user opens a file with a grey icon, whether it’s from inside a program or directly from Finder the file will be

downloaded and the grey icon will be replaced by following icons, indicating that the user now have a local copy of the file on the computer.


Green : File/meta file was downloaded locally
Blue : File is being uploaded or downloaded. Shown on folders which has files which are being uploaded or downloaded.

RushFiles : Shown on folders where files in it will be downloaded and available offline.


Any change to the file by the user will automatically get transferred back to the corporate fileserver on save.
