vBoxxCloud version 3.6 is live with new features, clients, and fixes. You can see a full list of changes in the published changelog.

Updated Clients

  • MacOS Sync Tool
  • Windows Sync Tool
  • Windows Virtual Sync Tool
  • Outlook Plugin

Main Improvements and Changes

  • Improved breadcrumb navigation for admins browsing through Team Shares.
  • Changed temporary folder location for updater downloads in order not to trigger antivirus software.
  • SMBv1 protocol is no longer supported for connecting to network drives, as this is insecure and might cause issues. We recommend using SMBv2 or SMBv3 instead.
  • Added support for macOS 14 Sonoma.
  • The organization administrator can now disable two-step authentication per account, which is helpful when users lose their restore keys. If the organization settings require two-step authentication for all accounts, the user will be prompted to set it up again the next time they log in.
  • When deleting a user's account, the administrator can now choose to keep share links created by that user. In that case, the links will stay active and the organization administrator will be able to manage them.
  • We've improved policy checks in the uploader. If a user tries to upload a file that exceeds the organizational file size limit or has a restricted file type, they will get an error message immediately, without waiting for the upload to finish.
  • The user interface in the drag-and-drop upload dialog is improved.
  • The breadcrumb navigation for shared folders with deep folder structure is improved.

Most Notable Fixes

These issues were resolved in this version of vBoxxCloud:

  • Manually disabled machine root subscriptions were re-enabling for users after a new team share was added to the group.
  • WebDAV was disabling for users after they edited their personal settings.
  • Files and folders with multibyte characters in their names (such as diacritical marks from European languages and special symbols) would not open.
  • Local data was being deleted after removing file server enablement mapping on the server.
  • Removing or deselecting a root subscription during active syncing could cause slow or stalled sync.
  • Filesystem locks (Deny ACE) weren’t disabling even after agent locks were lifted in some cases.
  • Deleted files and folders kept being recreated.
  • Fixed server-side handling of files and folders with multibyte characters in names to avoid duplicating. Client-side fix is underway.
  • Combinations of special characters in file names that are not supported on Windows and originate on macOS could cause Thick Client to stop syncing.
  • Team Share icons in Finder were displaying incorrectly.
  • Device going to sleep could cause problems with reconnecting and resuming sync.
  • Application icon in Launchpad would appear broken on macOS 13 Ventura and macOS 14 Sonoma.
  • Cutting files from Synced Folder and pasting them into a local folder could lead to data loss.
  • Network problems during copying and pasting files into Synced Folder could lead to some files being skipped from sync.
  • Sync could hang when client tried to delete a folder that was already deleted on the server.
