Offline Access

Providing group off-line access is an interesting challenge, more complicated then single user off-line access. For example, if a file is changed in the off-line mode and someone simultaneously modifies the same file in the cloud, how to reconcile the two? Since, lock propagation to the cloud is not feasible in the off-line mode.Egnyte today tackles this problem by creating versions of the file and sorting them on the basis of the timestamp.This problem gets further compounded when someone with multiple remote offices uses a cloud based solution and also needs off-line access per site.We are currently working on a solution that tries to address these issues and also overcomes issues with Microsoft DFS.
