WinORS and FRAME File Operations: FRAME to External Storage To save your working files please understand the following two possible methods.
Recommended: Cloud Storage Connect your FRAME account to any combination of Google Drive, DropBox, or Box account. Use the Files menu on the top of your FRAME Launchpad. Figure 1 below shows both the Dropbox and Google Drive account is connected.
Figure 1: Showing connection to Dropbox and Google Drive After you have connected an external disk storage provider this option will appear as a new drive letter when saving/opening files. For example, once connected to a Google Drive account you will see that the location is listed as drive F in the FRAME Explorer (Figure 2).

Alternative: Host Machine Local disk storage on FRAME such as in the Documents folder on This PC is only available during the session. Therefore, before you Power Off from FRAME you should copy your working files to the Download Now link (see: Figure 2). This will cause FRAME to automatically start the download of your working files to your host device – PC, MAC, Tablet, etc.
File Operations: FRAME and Internal WinORS Cloud WinORS supports its own internal “Cloud” for data files created by you. The internal WinORS cloud is located under the File command on the menu system. There are two different WinORS supported Cloud drives you should be familiar with: a) General. This is an unrestricted “Cloud”. You may save and load files to this “open” WinORS cloud. Please remember – this is not a secure file storage device. That is, any WinORS user can open any file stored on the General WinORS cloud drive. b) Examples. This is a read-only cloud where all example files are stored
