Workspaces are Accellion's way of allowing multiple users to share and collaborate on many large files. Unlike the kitedrive application, there is no file size limit for workspaces. However, Workspaces are not synced continuously and therefore must either be synced manually or set up with a sync schedule.



Note : The following steps are written with Mac OS in mind. If you are working on a different OS, the following steps should be followed only as guidelines. Use the steps that apply to your OS analogous to the steps below. For further questions free feel to contact us at [contactIGPPNetOps] .
