Storage Sync - Enabling Optimization for Mac Environments

Overview

Optimization for Mac Environments can be turned on to improve performance when connected to Storage Sync.  When accessing the Storage Sync share from a Mac client, file system operations like browsing folders, accessing files, and moving files can be sped up by enabling this setting. 

When enabling, users that are connected to Storage Sync will need to reconnect to the share. 

Note: This setting should be used in environments where the majority of the clients are Mac.  In mixed environments, Mac Optimization can be enabled however some applications on Windows clients may not be compatible with this feature enabled.
