Just checking if there is a way for users to get to StorageZone Connected on premise CIFs drives via the web browser and Windows ShareFile Sync app?
Currently users can do so via the various mobile apps for Android, iOS etc, but not through the web interface nor the Windows Desktop (not modern UI) Sync app.
For example a user at home running a Mac wants to get to their StorageZone Connected departmental drive to open, edit and save back a document. Editing on mobile devices is good but for substantial editing it's best done from a PC or Mac.
If this functionality isn't currently available is it something the Citrix ShareFile team are looking into?
Thanks for the feedback. We are working on enabling access to connectors from the ShareFile web site and expect to have that feature enabled in the next few months. The web site will allow upload and download so users can get a doc, edit it and save it back.
Accessing Connectors from the Windows sync client is further out on the radar and we don't have a specific ETA for that at this time.
Hope this helps!

storagezone Connectors for Windows.
I have a question about the ShareFile StorageZones Controller.
We have a couple Win 8.1 tablets. I have installed the sharefile app from the
When I login, I can't see the connection to the internal network share.
I read from internet that the StorageZone Connectors for Network File
Shares is only available for IOS and Android clients.
Will ShareFile also be available for Win8.1? If yes, when?
As an interim work around it would be useful to easily 'copy' a file from a StorageZone Connector CIFS share into the users 'My Files & Folders' cloud location from within the mobile app so that it can easily be shared out from there. Without having to login to the web browser to manually copy the file that way. Perhaps a 'copy to' button within the mobile app UI? Just an idea
So, it's been a couple of months since this was updated last...Q3 is gone now, are you close to at least the web browser functionality?
Sincere apologies for the delay. We still plan to enable web access to connectors but due to a number of factors the feature release is taking longer than originally expected. Thanks everyone for your interest and patience--your feedback keeps this one high on the priority list.
Once we have identified a high-confidence release date, I'll chime in again on this thread to let you know. For now the best info I have is that web access will likely not ship until sometime in 2015.
we are also interested, using Storage Zone Connector feature with Web Browser and Windows 8.1 App. So, any updates yet? We ́re using the feature on our ios devices and it works great, but we want to rollout some Windows 8.1 tablet devices to be more flexible with specific software in the future. But we also want to use this feature of sharefile. Please keep us informed.
Thanks and best regards,
Also if you are using a NetScaler as part of your deployment, there are some configuration changes required to support web access documented here:
(Please note that checkin/checkout for SharePoint documents is not yet available when using the web site to access SharePoint document libraries.)
The ShareFile app for Windows 8.1 tablets does not yet support Connectors, but users on those devices could use a browser with the web access feature enabled.
This is a most wanted feature : enabling Windows full Sharefile client to sync datas from existing CIFS shares.
Second question : Is there any chance to see also Sharefile product coming as a virtual Appliance for full private cloud deployement like this product http://www.infrascale.com/file-sharing/#tab-id-4
Thanks for your feedback
We waited for 2 years for the sync client and end up only web client and no ETA for the sync client, too bad my company cannot wait any longer and need to look for other solution.
It supports Connectors access in a native Windows user interface.
