Asynchronous (Backgrounded) Operations

Certain large or complex operations on files may be performed in an asynchronous manner. Examples of operations that may be performed asynchronously include copying files, moving files from Files Native Storage to a Remote Server, moving files on or between Remote Servers, renaming files or folders on Remote Servers, and deleting folders on Remote Servers.

When a request is being processed in the background, some status information will be shown in the top left of the UI under a dropdown that says Actions In Progress.

Although the vast majority of asynchronous background operations complete successfully and quickly, we have seen occasional cases where operations will get stuck in that Actions In Progress view. If you notice this, please report it to us right away and we will investigate.
