About this task

Important: If Auto-Sync is turned on, downloaded files are automatically updated when changes are made to the original version on the Workspace. If your device is offline when changes are made, the downloaded copies will be updated the next time your device is online.

If your device has a data plan, updates may consume a significant amount of its data usage allotment. If this is a concern, you may want to limit the number of files that you download for offline use and perform downloads and updates only when your device is connected to a wireless network.
