        How to differentiate the "categories" folders from the "workspaces" folders?

        • Category folders have a multi-colored tab.

        Selective synchronization of your workspaces on your Wimi Drive

        You can choose which categories and which workspaces will be synchronized or not on your macOS Wimi Drive.

        When you create your Wimi Drive account, if you left the options offered and checked by default, you should have all of the folders in your categories, containing all the folders in your workspaces, exactly as on your Wimi online .

        However, you can choose and select the workspaces that you want to synchronize or not on your workstation.

        • Click on the black cloud, icon located in the menu bar of your mac (top right).
        • Click on the gear, then on Selective synchronization.
        • Check / uncheck the categories and the workspaces to synchronize or not.
        • Click on Confirm to validate.

        Wimi Drive will launch a synchronization taking into account your new settings.
