Some files are to be read, others to be edited, and some few to be scrutinized and reviewed. The permissions you grant while you share a file decide the level of activity a user can do on your file.
If you have a set of files to be shared with your team and you don't want the contents to be changed in any way, then you can share the files in a read-only folder.
But what happens when read-only folders are synced to desktops?

Until now, on your desktop, you could edit, move or delete any shared file regardless of the permissions you had for its folder.
The latest update from Zoho Docs Sync provides true syncing of read-only folders to desktops. Now Zoho Docs Sync prevents users from performing actions like editing, renaming, moving and deleting within read-only folders synced to their desktops.
