Folders and documents are virtual objects of the Scanshare Repository. They are represented by virtual data stored in the Scanshare current database in conjunction of the data files (documents) stored on the disk inside the Repository data folder.
Documents are stored in an encrypted form by using a strong AES 256 algorithm with a random key generated per document and per user. Documents on the disk are not manually decryptable providing high level security also to disk access by IT administrators.
Scanshare Repository automatically compute the dynamic decryption key at any use of the document from the Scanshare application and modules.
Folders and Documents are displayed as big tiles with a different layout style for folders and documents. Folders are displayed always in the top upper part while documents in the bottom lower part.
Folders display a generic document icon if there is any content inside otherwise a white tile means an empty folder. Documents display, instead, an icon for each of the most common file types, plus the user who last edit them.
A sharing icon is displayed next to the tile of the folder / document for the objects which have been shared publicly.
Single click allows to open folders and documents, empty folders will display a specific icon and descriptive text, documents will open a preview window.
