  • Recycle Bin. Unnecessary files are moved to the Recycle Bin. Only the administrator can delete the contents of the recycle bin from the drive. Before this happens, the files in the Recycle Bin can be restored.


  • Users. Only members of the Administrators group have access to this folder. This folder stores files created during the execution of business processes, documents shared by specific users in chats and channels, app data, avatars, etc.
