File Director map points

A map point is an area in File Director that you can access on multiple devices. Map points display and behave in a similar way to folders on your devices, providing areas to download, upload, and share files. Multiple map point types provide different levels of access and different sets of actions.

You can identify map point types by their icons.

The Mac client icons do not differentiate between map point types
