External File Sources

Note: This content is no longer updated. For the latest content, please go to the user guide for M-Files Online. For information on the supported product versions, refer to our lifecycle policy.

You can import or link files from external sources to M-Files. With a link between a folder on a network drive and an M-Files vault, you can modify files both in M-Files and on the network drive. If you want to make changes in M-Files only, you can import the files to the vault.

You can also use external repository connectors to import content to your vault. See Connectors. Make sure that you do not use both features to import the same content.
