TeamDrive 4.6.2 (Win/Mac/Linux & Android/iOS)

TeamDrive 4.6.2. is an important update which resolves a network connection problem and adds new features.

Resolved Bug: Network connection issue. In some cases where the network connection changed (seen on Windows and on Mac), TeamDrive could not re-establish a valid network connection. Rebooting the computer or just the TeamDrive app resolved the problem in most cases. In Version 4.6.2 we fixed that code and all reported problems are resolved. We tested this version with many customers and saw not complaint anymore.

New in 4.6.2:

Desktop (Windows and Mac)

- Virtual Spaces on a mounted network drive. We now offer the feature that users can comfortably work on a network drive and keep all space data in the Cloud. This fulfills 2 objectives. One, it allows users to be an active member in many spaces with hundreds of GB, without occupying local storage. Second, it will help companies to comply with GDPR request to keep all content central and disallow local storage of data with personal information.
We call this new feature "beta release" as we need to get more widely feedback. It will not install automatically, but can be selected during the installation.
To use the new feature, a third party component need to be installed on the client computer. On windows it is called "CBFS Callback File System", a commercial more reliable subsitute for FUSE. On Mac we install FUSE. These components allow TeamDrive to mount a virtual volume. On Windows we mount volume t: as a default TeamDrive volume. On Mac it will be a remote volume.
When installing or updating to 4.6.2 the user can select the installation of "CBFS Callback File System" or "FUSE".
In the Client settings the user can define the default Space path to "Mount Virtual Spaces". This will work for new Spaces and accepting new Invitations. Existing Spaces need to be switched manually. Space -> i (information) -> Space Path -> Mount Space to Virtual File System"
Each virtual Space will create a hidden cache folder. We will make the Cache Path user selectable in a future version. Currently the Virtual Space cache is in the Application Data folder (TeamDrive). But this may result on Windows into problems with the path length. To avoid this path length problem, this will be the next problem to fix for us.

Mobile iOS and Android

- We modified the Read Confirmations feature. Now the admin can require a manual read confirmation on Android and IOS. Before it was automatically confirmed if a user opened a document. Now if manual confirmation is turned on, the user will be ask to confirm or deny (delay).

- For iOS and Android we fixed and improved the feature to import photos from the Photos app. This is now sleek and fast. Apple introduced in MacOS 11 HEIF and HEVC formats which we convert almost lossless into JEPG.
