Dragging and Dropping Documents Using the Connected Desktop

Overview

The Connected Desktop lets you easily move files and folders directly to and from your SmartVault account. 

When you drag and drop a document from your computer to the Connected Desktop,  the document is now located in two places: your computer and SmartVault. 

Likewise, when you drag and drop a document from SmartVault to your computer, the document also stays in SmartVault. 

If you want to delete the document in one location, you must do that manually. For more information, see Using the Recycle Bin to Delete or Restore Files and Folders

To upload a document from your computer to SmartVault:

  1. Open the SmartVault Connected Desktop.
  2. Find the document on your computer that you want to upload to SmartVault.
  3. Drag the document into any location in your Connected Desktop. The document appears in the location you selected. 

      Tip

    As you are dragging the file, the green arrow indicates where in SmartVault the file will be uploaded.
