Does the HCP Anywhere Connector download partial files?

No, the software will download a complete file.  We investigated downloading partial file updates but, especially with Microsoft Word, there was no advantage.  Word documents are quite complex, with changes occurring throughout the document.  In practice it took longer with more risk of damaging the content of the document.  Also, the software will only download the documents that have been updated or changed in some way so the actual data interchange is kept to a minimum.

You can be assured that once synchronised, the document  on your computer will be the mirror image of the document stored in SharePoint.
