  3. Similarly, custom folder preferences will be remembered for sorting, irrespective of the default sort preferences.

  2. Check the supported files for conversion in WorkDrive.

  3. Files uploaded via WorkDrive Sync and TrueSync apps will not be converted automatically. You will need to manually open these files in their respective apps to convert them.
