174. Access iFolder from the Desktop

 < Day Day Up > 

After you have logged on successfully to the iFolder server, an icon is placed on the desktop for your local iFolder. You can use this icon to quickly open your iFolder as needed. To keep the files up-to-date in the local iFolder, it is periodically synchronized with your iFolder on the server.

Open Your iFolder

Double-click the iFolder icon on the NLD desktop. The iFolder opens. The iFolder is empty the first time you open it, unless you specified a directory that already contains files.

Move Files to iFolder

Open a Folder on your hard drive using Nautilus. To move files from a local folder (on your computer) to the iFolder, drag the files as needed onto the iFolder icon on the desktop.

View Files in iFolder

To view or access the files in your iFolder double-click the desktop iFolder icon. A Nautilus window opens showing the iFolder contents.


You can treat the iFolder as you do any other folder on your system. Copy or move files to the iFolder, delete files in the iFolder, and double-click a file to open the application that the file was created in. You can also specify the iFolder as the destination to save a file as you work in an application such as OpenOffice.org Writer or Calc. Bottom line: It is the same as other folders that you access locally on your computer, except that it gets synchronized in the background to your iFolder on the server.
