Box Drive Offers Ability to Work Offline

Box Drive released a new feature called Mark for Offline (MFO) on October 31. With the Mark for Offline feature you will be able to access your work without network connectivity. You can select documents you want to work with offline and Box Drive will automatically download the latest version to your desktop. Once you are back online, Box Drive will automatically upload your changes back to Box, ensuring you and your collaborators are always working with the most up-to-date versions of your files. 

Box Sync, which has a similar feature to MFO, is a separate desktop application that also gives you the ability to access Box content from your desktop environment. For most users, Box Drive will meet your needs better than Sync, and CIT recommends downloading Drive to your desktop following the instructions here:
