Download Directory

The Download Directory is the path where KONNEKT saves files to, that the user wants to recover.

The typical use-case is, that an error happened during the transfer of a file to SharePoint Online. In this case KONNEKT will show an error in Windows File Explorer. One option for users is to "export file to download folder".

You can find more about handling errors here.
