Streamlining Your Work with Drag and Drop in SmartVault's Connected Desktop

The SmartVault Connected Desktop makes your file management smoother and quicker. Whether moving documents from your PC to SmartVault or vice versa, drag-and-drop functionality streamlines the process.

  • Remember, dragging a document to the Connected Desktop uploads it without removing it from its original location on your computer.
  • When you drag a document from SmartVault to your PC, it's just a copy—the original stays safely in SmartVault. If you want to clean up and remove documents from one location, you'll need to do so manually.
