Active Binary Sync
If you enable the binary sync, the initial sync will take a little longer (depending on the size of the package and the speed of your Internet connection), but the performance when downloading content is significantly increased, because the content of the library is stored locally. If the sync downloads too much data, you can additionally work with the First Sync Package.(First Sync Package/Implement the FirstSyncPackage)
Inactive Binary Sync
Switching off the binary sync is mandatory for Citrix and terminal servers, because disabling the binary sync reduces the sync load. This reduces the time until empower has performed the initial sync and helps with weak internet connections.
