  1. BriefCase

    I do a lot of moving around so I use a USB drive to carry some of my folders with me. From past experience I used the "Briefcase folder" As I was looking to synchronize my USB Drive with my computer that is a windows 10 operating system with an intel core processor I5 , I realize that the Briefcase option was not available. Is there any way to have this option available on my computer? Please help, I do a lot of typing on official documents that I need to have synchronize to my computer once I come home from work.

  2. synch Briefcase files


    Briefcase is a special folder in the Windows operating system that supports a simple file synchronization between itself and another folder. However, this is no longer available in Windows 10. You can consider using alternative options such as using OneDrive.
    Just store anything on your OneDrive folder and it's automatically available on your other devices that are synchronized to your OneDrive account.

    Regarding your concern about Windows briefcase, we need additional details so that we can provide the next steps you can take to resolve the issue. Kindly provide the answers to the questions below:

    • How did you enable the briefcase option in your Windows 10 computer?
    • How do you usually access the briefcase folder in your computer?
    • Which version and build of Windows 10 do you have installed.

    We look forward to your response to our queries.

    Hi, sorry your briefcase was stolen. *chuckle

    I suggest the following with no guarantee as to whether it works (I can't try it in the CU as I use the AU).
    The relevant reg file is provided as a zipped download.
    Further, if it works now, there's no guarantee it would continue to do so in future builds.
