 Remember that the drive is a remote view of data. If you work with a very large file the whole file has to be downloaded and then on save uploaded. The SME Sync element of the App are a much better way of working with such large files. Remember that the drive is a remote view of data.

 It is not recommended to copy a large amount of files with the Drive. If the file sizes are large please consider the SME Cloud Migration Assistant. Dragging and Dropping files between the local file system and the cloud drive will work and will even try to resume on failure but the drive is not optimized for such large file transfers, and note that it users a local cache to store the files. It is not recommended to copy a large amount of files with the Drive.

 The drive should work perfectly well with office documents but be aware that a network blip, general office crashes, and latency sensitivity of office, can cause documents to be lost so always consider setting up the office auto-recovery office option when working with the drive. The drive should work perfectly well with office documents but be aware that a network blip, general office crashes, and latency sensitivity of office, can cause documents to be lost so always consider setting up the office auto-recovery office option when working with the drive.

 +===Protecting Your Work===
 +
 +Data loss is always a possibility when using any software, including the Cloud Drive. It can occur due to networking interruptions,​ program defects or hardware malfunctions. ​ The following steps are recommended to minimize the likelihood of data loss due to any of these causes when using the Cloud Drive:
 +
 +1. Save your work frequently. ​ You may be able to set your application to do this automatically. ​ If not, save manually.
 +
 +2. If your application writes temporary files and allows you to set a location for them, set the location to a directory on your local disk, not the Cloud Drive.
