-===== 1-2 Overview and Installation =====+The File Fabric Cloud Apps provide a suite of tools that can be used as a means of interacting with one or more cloud storage providers directly from Mac OSX. User can choose to use the entire suite or choose which of the tools fit their working patter. The Apps include:
  
 + - A 'Cloud Drive' directly accessible from Finder which provide a '​view'​ and download on demand of remote files.
 + - A local-to-remote folder mapping App to sync files off-line.
 + - An OSX menu bar '​Search App' that functions like a cloud spotlight search for quickly finding / sharing / downloading remote cloud files.
 + - An OSX Mail plug-in that enables secure file links to be added to Mac Mail.    (a similar toolbar option is provided for those who use Outlook or other Mac email providers).
 + - Finder integration for file sharing and other actions.
 + The virtual drive feature makes use of a technology known as OSXFuse which is installed as part of the setup. This is seamless unless you have MacFuse already installed. If this is the case then may be prompted to upgrade MacFuse before installing the Mac Cloud Apps. If you are using an existing App with MacFuse then be sure to choose to use the compatibility layer and remove the existing MacFuse installation. You can also check for later versions from the SME advanced tab accessible using System Preferences.
