Branch Command (Source Menu)

Command Remarks

Breaks the share link while retaining a copy of the file, or copies the selected history version of an item to a location you specify.

You can branch either a shared file or a history version of an item. When a file is branched, the branch history of the file is shown in the Paths tab in the Properties dialog box.

In Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted, branching a file does not increment the version number of the file.
