Changing download properties for folders in a file sharing workspace
You can change folder properties that specify when to download new or updated files. The initial download setting for file sharing workspace folders depends on what you selected when prompted when either creating the workspace or accepting an invitation to the workspace.
If you change download properties for a folder to Manual Download, this means that you must manually download any new files that other members place in that folder, as well as re-download any files that are updated by other members.
To change download settings:
1.Select the folder for which you want to change download settings.
2.Click Edit this folder's download settings in the File and Folder Tasks pane.
3.Set the download options you want, and click OK.
##To download all new files automatically, select Full Automatic Download.
##To download new files automatically provided they're within a certain size limit, select Limited Automatic Download and then enter a size limit, in megabytes. If a new file exceeds the size limit, SharePoint Workspace will list the file and make it available for downloading manually.
##To download new files manually, select Manual Download.
Tip You can set any file to automatically download updates whenever another member saves file updates: Select the file, click Show this file's properties under File and Folder Tasks, and check Automatically keep this file up to date.
4.If the folder has subfolders, select an option to apply to subfolders and click OK.
1.Right-click the OneDrive icon (The OneDrive icon) in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar. (You might need to click Show hidden icons first to see the icon.) Then click Settings.
2.On the Settings tab, under General, select Use Office to sync files faster and work on files with other people at the same time, and then click OK.
