Update to Box Sync folder deletion behavior

Starting the week of November 10, Box Sync will be updated to actually delete folders in Box that you delete from your local Box Sync folder. Prior to the update, folders deleted locally were only unsynced in Box. Box Sync users are encouraged to review Deleting Synced Folders.

Early versions of Box apps for Apple devices will be Retired

Box has ended support for several older versions of mobile apps including all versions of Box for iPhone and iPad prior to v3.x. Please upgrade to the latest version for your device.

File lock functionality added to Box Sync

Users of the Box Sync app can now temporarily lock a file to prevent collaborators from modifying it. For details visit How Do I lock Files While I'm Editing Them? from the Box website. For more information about apps available for Box, visit the Box FAQ.
