Where is content in MetaShare stored?
The files in MetaShare are not stored in MetaShare, they are stored in Microsoft SharePoint. MetaShare only presents data from SharePoint in a user-friendly interface. If you at any time choose to uninstall MetaShare, all documents, their metadata and their access rights will remain intact in SharePoint.
If you are using MetaShare Online, the administrator of your Office 365 decides where the files are stored geographically. When activating Office 365, you will automatically be suggested to store your information in the nearest Microsoft data center. If your business operates mainly in Europe, the recommendation is to choose a storage within EU. This can later be changed if you are an Office 365 administrator.
If you are using MetaShare Server, your files will be stored in your own local SharePoint servers and no data will be stored in any shared storage/data center.
