|Return to Configuration Overview|
There are two actions you can set so that when a file is added using the File Share Library page (either by upload or moved from elsewhere in SharePoint) different actions occur. By default, the file size of the item you are uploading cannot exceed the maximum file size configured for your SharePoint farm.
|1.||Automatically export all items: DISABLED||
When you add an item to File Share Library, the item will be stored in File Share Library, just like a SharePoint Document Library. The file is stored in the SharePoint content database. This option is useful if you are migrating the contents of a network file share to SharePoint, and want users to upload new documents only to SharePoint. 1
|2.||Automatically export all items: ENABLED||When you add an item to File Share Library, the item will be immediately copied to the network file share. A placeholder file is added to File Share Library to act as a link to the file on the network file share. This option can be used if you have large files that you don’t want to be stored in the SharePoint content database.2|
