Folders are simply directories inside the CloudFiles library. A folder can contain both files and folders. You can add files into folders from a variety of sources - your local storage or Cloud based drives like Google Drive, Box Drive, Dropbox or One Drive. Folders can be shared using CloudFiles links and when this is done the files in them also get shared.
Datarooms is a secure storage space for your files meant to share files together with a single CloudFiles link. The file can be sourced in multiple data rooms from any of the Cloud Drives. You can also Request Files in CloudFiles data rooms Removing the hassle of individually downloading and sorting files received via email attachments.
