Citrix Files makes accessing your files from a Mac much easier. It allows you to access files and folders from ShareFile directly through Finder on your Mac. Content is streamed when it is accessed and not permanently stored on your computer. Changes made to files in the ShareFile folder are automatically saved back to the cloud. Most Finder operations like drag and drop, copy and paste, move and rename, and others will automatically update to the cloud.
