The contents of this folder are automatically synchronized with the Cloud9Vault system and your other devices.
The desktop application needs to be running for the contents of your synced folder to be synchronized. By default, the application starts when you log into your computer.
The desktop application also includes a taskbar or menu bar icon that lets you view the status of and configure the application. This icon is visible only when the application is running.

A. File/Folder Naming Considerations:
These rules apply to file and folder names in Cloud9Vault:
• File and folder names cannot be blank.
• These characters are not allowed:
Asterisk (*), Colon (:), Less-than symbol (<), Greater-than symbol (>), Question mark (?), Forward slash (/), Backslash (\), Vertical bar (|), Double quotation mark (“).
In the User Portal, you cannot create a folder or upload a file that has a name that contains one of these characters.
If you store such a file or folder in the synced folder on your computer, the desktop application does not synchronize that file or folder. For information on viewing a list of files that the desktop application could not synchronize.
• Individual file names and individual folder names cannot exceed 255 characters.
•File paths cannot exceed 1,023 characters. For more information on how this limit affects file synchronization for the desktop application.
•These file and folder names are not allowed:
. (a single period), .. (two periods), CON, PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9.
A. Cloud9Vault enforces the limits listed in the table below.
A. Cloud9Vault does not synchronize files with paths that exceed 1,023 characters. With the desktop application, the part of a file path above and including the synced folder (for example, C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents\Cloud9Vault) does not count towards the Cloud9Vault file path limit.
However, the operating system on your computer also has a file path limit. Windows supports file paths of up to 259 characters. Mac OS X supports file paths of up to 1,023 characters. The path above and including the synced folder counts towards the operating system file path limit.
This means that a file that you store in the synced folder on a Mac can exceed the Windows file path limit but not the Cloud9Vault file path limit. In this case, Cloud9Vault synchronizes the file to your other Macs and mobile devices, but not to your Windows computers. For example, if the location of your synced folder on your Mac is /Users/lgreen/Cloud9Vault (which contains 26 characters), Cloud9Vault cannot synchronize to your Windows computers any files with paths that exceed 233 characters.
A. Cloud 9 Vault communication is protected with Secure SSL. While the application is running, you may be prompted to accept a certificate for the Cloud9Vault system. This would most likely occur when you are registering or re-authenticating the application. In the prompt, you can:
•Click on the Details button to examine the certificate to ensure that it applies to your Cloud9Vault system.
•Click on the Cancel button to reject the certificate and close the application.
•Click on the OK button to accept and install the certificate.
The desktop application does not allow you to manage or delete the Cloud9Vault system certificate once you accept and install it. You need use the system-specific tools for your operating system to manage the certificates installed on your computer.
If you are not sure whether you should accept the certificate, see your Cloud9Vault administrator for assistance.
A. You can use the mobile app to access the files that you’ve stored in Cloud9Vault. You can also add pictures, videos, and other files from your mobile device to Cloud9Vault.
A. Cloud9Vault provides mobile apps for Apple, Android, and Windows Phone devices. Your administrator tells you where you can retrieve the apps. You may be able to download them from your device’s app store or from your organization’s app store.
When you start a mobile app for the first time, you need to specify some information to register your mobile device with the Cloud9Vault system.
