Improvements to MATLAB® Drive™ Connector stability and robustness
MATLAB Drive Connector now updates quietly in background, so as not to disturb your working.
Improved syncing process, especially for MATLAB Drives with numerous files.
Enhanced notification options for MATLAB Drive activity. See Account Information.
Corrected minor issues with MATLAB Drive Connector installer and updater. If you had trouble installing or updating MATLAB Drive in the past, you can try again with this release.
Upload folders from desktop to MATLAB Drive online.
The Upload button now lets you upload folders as well as individual files. This same functionality can be accessed by using the right-click context menu when viewing MATLAB Drive online.
For more about file and folder uploading and downloading, see Add Files.
Share folders directly from desktop MATLAB
If you have MATLAB Drive Connector installed and actively syncing, you can share folders in your MATLAB Drive.
To share a folder from desktop MATLAB:
MATLAB R2019b must be installed and running on the desktop computer.
The folder you choose to share must be in your MATLAB Drive.
MATLAB Drive Connector must be running.
Right-click the folder in the current file browser of your desktop MATLAB and select Share.
For more about sharing folders on MATLAB Drive, see Share and Collaborate.

View MATLAB Files Online
When using your MATLAB Drive online, double-click any MATLAB file or Live Script to preview its contents. When previewing these files, you also have the option to open them in MATLAB Online™.
See View Files Online.
Indication for Files Synced from Shared Folder
Files in shared folders now have a SHARED indicator in MATLAB Drive Connector Activity.
You cannot edit a SHARED file in a 'Can View' folder - this is indicated by a padlock symbol .
Sharing and Collaboration
Share your folders with a view-only link and by inviting individuals with either view-only or edit permissions. Invitations can be accepted or declined.
After a folder is shared, you can manage the permissions of invited members, rescind invitations, or send additional invitations at any time.
Share your MATLAB Drive folders and collaborate with others using MATLAB Online.
MATLAB Drive Connector automatically syncs shared folders to your desktop computer while retaining proper access permissions to their contents.
For those of you who shared folders in MATLAB Onlineprior to the release of the share feature in MATLAB Drive, your existing shared folders will be synced to your desktop computer into a folder named Shared.
