An update for Files app has been released: version 1.1.0.

In this version, we have added support for data synchronization with remote file storages and other resources. The synchronization occurs by means of plugins. To help you start using this useful feature right away, we have also published two free plugins: 'Dropbox' and 'WebDAV server'.


'Dropbox' plugin

Now not only you can work with files stored in your Dropbox account. Any users who have access to your Webasyst backend can now access those files, too. Choose which is more suitable for you: allow Files app to access all files in your Dropbox or only a single folder.

With this plugin set up, documents of your Dropbox account will become available in Files app just as another files folder. Work with those files in Files app as usual, any changes you make will be automatically synchronized with your Dropbox account.

'WebDAV server' plugin

With this plugin, synchronization works the other way: files stored in your Files app can be made accessible from outside. You do not even have to log into your Webasyst account to upload, replace, delete, or rename documents stored in Files.

Simply map a network drive, connected to Files app, on your computer; e.g., using File Explorer in Windows or Finder in Mac OS X, and work with its contents as you usually do with locally stored files. Any changes you make will be automatically applied to files stored in Files app, you will see them whenever you log back into Webasyst. This kind of data exchange is implemented with the use of WebDAV technology.

How to download and install the Dropbox desktop app

Once installed, you’ll be prompted to either sign in or create a new account.

How to install the desktop app with admin privileges

The Dropbox desktop app requires admin privileges to run with full functionality on your computer. This enables multiple different core features of Dropbox, including:

  • Sync icons that show the sync status of files and folders
  • Right-click context menus for taking quick actions in Dropbox
  • Access to Smart Sync

For the vast majority of users, the desktop app is automatically installed with admin privileges. However, if you didn't install with admin privileges you can follow the instructions below to do so.

Note: If you don't have admin rights on your computer (for example if you're using a work computer), you may need to ask your IT department for help.

  2. Open the installer.
    • Do not right-click, and do not command-click Run as an Administrator
  3. Follow the instructions in the install wizard.
    • If you’re asked for an administrative username and password, enter them or contact your administrator to sign in.
    • If you’re not asked for an administrative username and password, you’re already an admin on your computer.

Smart Sync and admin privileges

Some Dropbox users will have access to Smart Sync. If you have access to this feature, check that Dropbox is installed with admin privileges on each computer where the feature will be used.

Why does the Dropbox desktop app for Mac require Keychain access?

Keychain is a password management system for Mac. Dropbox requires access to your Keychain to help verify your account and to provide another layer of security over the Dropbox app preferences.

  • To grant Keychain access to Dropbox, click Allow or Always Allow (recommended for seamless access) when prompted to do so from Mac.
  • Clicking Deny will result in a 'Couldn't start Dropbox' error message. For security reasons, Dropbox will not start without access to your Keychain.
