Definition of * in file browser

Hi Team,

I have Opened File Browser from HOME page of Helical Insight application 5.1 GA and I see * in front of some files and folders. What is the meaning of that * like ->Read + Write*?I understand Read+Write but what is the *?

Thank You,


  • If the file/folder itself is not shared with the user but just the top parent folder within which file/folder is present then it will show * mark on that files/folder, if files/folders are directly shared with any user then it will not appear.
  • The * indicates that the files/folders is not shared directly with the user , it is just a part of the folder that is shared.

Thank you,
Helical Insight.
