There are two upload options you can turn on/off in NetDrive 3:
- Use background uploading
- Use on-the-fly uploading in Explorer
Use background uploading
Files are uploaded asynchronously in background. This reduces overhead and improves responsiveness of file upload operation. All files are copied to local cache first and it is uploaded in background. You can watch background upload operations in UPLOADS screen.
In terms of File API, NetDrive returns control to caller when the file is closed but is not yet uploaded to remote storage. If you turn off this option NetDrive returns control to caller when the file is uploaded to remote storage.
Use on-the-fly uploading in Explorer
Turn on this option to synchronously upload files when you are using Explorer to copy files to remote storage. NetDrive does not create any cache for the files.
