Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Answers to frequently asked questions from customers who want to use online hosting services

How and for what purposes can Seafile be used?

Seafile cloud storage is a simple and, at the same time, a very convenient and powerful tool for storing files in the cloud.

The most common service usage scenarios:

  • storage of user files in the cloud and synchronization to workstations;
  • connection Seafile as an external cloud disk (flash drive in the cloud);
  • exchange of large files between users;
  • work in office documents in the cloud, including cooperation (thanks to integration with OnlyOffce editors).
How is Seafile integrated with LiteOffice Mail corporate mail?

The Seafile service is integrated with the "LiteOffice Mail" corporate mail service and is submitted as an add-on that expands its capabilities.

Both services use a common authentication point - LDAP directory. If you have a mailbox in LiteOffice Mail, then you also have a Seafile cloud storage account.

Also, Seafile is the main file storage for LiteOffice Mail webmail, it allows you to save and attach email attachments directly to the file cloud.

Can I use Seafile on my mobile?

Seafile client application is available for almost all operating systems, both desktop, and mobile.

Links for download and installation can be found on the official download page.

Can I use Seafile to store backups?

Seafile is not very suitable for data backup. Any deleted file on the client will also be deleted in the cloud at the next synchronization.

But, if you turn off and do not use file synchronization, you can simply transfer the backup data to the cloud drive.

Seafile is a cloud storage and file synchronization and collaboration software. It is designed for easy data storage, file sharing, and teamwork between users or devices.

Seafile's key features include:

  1. Cloud storage: Seafile provides the ability to create and use a cloud storage solution for storing files. Users can upload, download and manage their files through a web interface or dedicated clients for desktops and mobile devices.

  2. Synchronization: Desktop and mobile apps automatically synchronize files between devices and cloud storage. This makes it easy to access and share files across devices.

  3. Teamwork: Seafile provides the ability to collaborate on files. Users can create shared folders and share access to files with other users. Different access levels are also provided to ensure control over file permissions.

  4. Data protection: Seafile keeps your data secure by encrypting data transmission and storage. You can rest assured that your files are stored and transmitted encrypted, making your information more secure.

  5. Self-managed infrastructure: Seafile provides the ability to be installed on your own servers or infrastructure, allowing organizations to have complete control over their data and security.

The general idea behind Seafile is similar to other cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive, but Seafile has unique features like self-managed infrastructure and an emphasis on security.

Pros of integration
Pros of integration

Using corporate email in conjunction with Seafile provides a number of significant benefits for businesses and organizations:

  1. Easy document exchange: file sharing between employees and external contacts is simplified. You can easily send links to files (rather than the files themselves) from your Seafile cloud storage in emails, making information sharing quick and convenient.

  2. Improved security: the fact that you can not attach files to emails, but send links to them from Seafile, increases security. The files are stored in secure cloud storage, and access to them can be controlled through permission settings.

  3. Reducing the load on the mail server: sending large files through the mail server can overload it. Using Seafile integration, files are uploaded to cloud storage and only the link to the file is sent through the mail server. This reduces server load and improves performance.

  4. File sharing: you can easily invite other employees or clients to work on shared files by simply sending them a link to the relevant documents from Seafile. This makes it easy to edit and discuss documents together.

  5. Simple saving of attachments: the integration gives you the ability to save attachments from emails directly to Seafile cloud storage, improving the organization and storage of important data and saving you time.

In short, Seafile's integration with business email improves communication and collaboration efficiency among employees and external contacts significantly, as well as enhancing file security and management.
