Description

 

Document entry types are used to store any type of document directly in the data source.

 

For architectural reasons, the documents stored in our Advanced Data Sources are NOT protected from deletions. Once they are deleted, they cannot be restored. Please keep a safe copy of all documents in another storage device. Support for this feature will be added in a coming update to our products.
