The desktop is where we first learned to explore and access files, and usually still where we’re most comfortable doing so today. That’s why we designed Box Drive, to allow you to work the way you already work, in the place you know best. With Box Drive, ALL of your files on Box are streamed to you, so you can easily access, share, and collaborate on cloud content right from your desktop, without using up all your hard drive space.
There are lots different ways to use Box Drive to stay productive and make working together simple, but here are the top 3 most popular ways to use Box Drive:
Seamlessly create and edit files right from your desktop

If your work takes you to places with limited internet connectivity, we've got you covered there too. You can access, edit, and create content without an internet connection, so you can work wherever you go. Simply mark any folder for offline access to your files.

Because Box is home to so much of your content, we know it can be a little overwhelming. The search bar is a fast, convenient way to locate any file or folder without having to browse through all your content in Box. Just type in the text you want to search for and results will appear as you type.
