How to Use Briefcase - Mac Users

December 16, 2016

Pro Suite Briefcase is our flexible and innovative access-anywhere product, that lets you access your files wherever you go, and see the same files on all of your Macs. As it is shared between all of your computers and accessible from anywhere online, it is a great place to put the files that you use most regularly. 

The Briefcase is sometimes referred to as the L drive.  When using Briefcase, you can store files as local files or online files.


Local Files: Local files are files stored on your physical computer. Briefcase has the ability to store local files as well as store them on our servers as online files.


Online Files: Briefcase allows to you store files as online files. These files have a .ld extension and reduce the file size. Online files can be viewed online or by downloading the file to your computer.


Once the software is installed you can use your Briefcase files just like any normal file on your computer.


** Please Note ** 


You must ensure that your data has finished uploading before removing or deleting the data from your computer. You can check this in your Web Portal and reviewing the files that have uploaded.

How to move files to the Briefcase

  1. Select the files/folders you wish to move to the Briefcase

  2. Drag and drop or copy and paste the selection into the Briefcase folder.

That’s it! Livedrive will copy your files to your Briefcase. You can access your Livedrive Briefcase via the desktop icon or via the Liverive icon, Open Briefcase in Finder.
