The iManage Drive Offline-White.png icon appears in the Windows task bar to indicate that no iManage account is currently available.


An icon may appear on your desktop. If you don't want that icon to show, then your administrator should set enable_windows_sidebar to false or remove that setting in admin_settings.yaml file. After they’ve performed either action, restart iManage Drive. The icon will no longer appear on your desktop. Contact your administrator for more information.

  • For efficient handling and syncing of content, we recommend that each workspace must contain no more than 10,000 folders.
