Docsvault Explorer

Document Explorer


The look and functionality of Docsvault is very similar to Windows Explorer.


It presents a hierarchical structure of cabinets, folders, and files.

Docsvault also features simple drag-and-drop functionality for copying, moving and importing files and folders.  


The interface provides multiple tabs so you can browse different files, folders, cabinets, and drives at the same time in different tabs. The multiple tabs also work as a container for Search results and Task manager.

Let us get familiar with each component of the Docsvault Explorer window.

oLeft Panel: On left tree view, we see a basic cabinet and folder filing structure that functions just like Windows file explorer making navigation within Docsvault very intuitive.
