SafeShare Release Notes 3.3

Release overview

Features of the SafeShare 3.3 release

  • Versioning: Covata Services now supports file versioning. Users are no longer required to rename a file each time a new version is uploaded with SafeShare. The number of versions and the storage used can be viewed and managed from within the client interface. 
  • Recycle bin: To coincide with the release of file versioning, SafeShare now provides users with a Recycle Bin. Accessible from the interface, users can easily restore deleted items from their recycle bin.
