Liferay Portal’s Documents and Media library provides a mechanism for storing files online using the same type of structure that you use to store files locally. You can use it to store files of any kind; it serves as a virtual shared drive, and can mount and browse external repositories. Its companion app, the Media Gallery, displays selected content from the Documents and Media library. It can display image, audio, and video files. Other features in the Documents and Media library include customizable document types and metadata sets, automatic document preview generation, and support for mounting multiple external repositories.

Liferay Sync synchronizes your local copies of the Documents and Media libraries with your site’s libraries. It lets you manage files from your desktop machine and mobile device. It provides the best way to manage your files on all your devices.
