When you connect to an iManage Work Server, iManage Drive automatically creates a stub for workspaces under the My Matters and Recent Matters folder in the mapped drive. You need not manually sync all your Recent Matters and My Matters to make them available locally. By default, 100 workspaces are displayed in each of these folders.

The sync begins, the iManage Drive panels pops up (unless disabled) to display the stages in the sync process as a sequence of 13 steps. For more information, see Syncing and unlinking workspaces.
When syncing is complete, the workspace continues to appear in the My Matters or Recent Matters folder but the icon changes to indicating that the metadata is now synced to your mapped drive. Double-click the workspace to view the content in it, which also displays the icon. The workspace also appears in the root folder in your mapped drive.
Refreshing the content
Whenever you switch to another server, iManage Drive automatically syncs the My Matters and Recent Matters folders to ensure that the list of workspaces from the served that you are currently connected server is displayed. To manually refresh the folders whenever required, right-click them and select Refresh.
If your administrator has set the refresh_recent_my_matters_frequency_in_seconds option, the Recent Matters and My Matters folders will refresh at the interval specified (in seconds). If this option is not set and you navigate within the Recent Matters or My Matters folder that has not been refreshed in the past 24 hours, an automatic refresh will occur.
