Prevent Files from being DownloadedBy enabling this feature you can control the file types that are permitted to be downloaded by Contributors and Consumers.
Save Metadata before DownloadIf you encounter speed issues when downloading files, you may choose to disable including metadata in the download. When you disable metadata, download of the file happens immediately, as opposed to writing the metadata first.
Note that any metadata that you have added to the asset while it was in Canto (tags, keywords, descriptions, copyright information) will not be embedded alongside the asset during the download.
Folders & Albums CountIf this function is enabled, file counting counts a file that is assigned to multiple albums in this folder multiple times.
When this feature is disabled, files that are assigned to multiple albums in this folder are only counted once in the file count.
