Microsoft introduced "Microsoft Office 2010 Upload Center" that enables you to monitor files that you're uploading to a server. "In particular, MOUC uses a feature known as Efficient File Transfer to help reduce bandwidth usage between SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010 applications.
After a file is fully uploaded to SharePoint 2010 site, a local copy of the file is kept in MOUC (in Office Document Cache), where it's broken into smaller units for editing. This breakdown of the file also takes place to the file uploaded on SharePoint site. When you make changes to local copy of file, EFT sends only changes to SharePoint site. As a result, files open more quickly and you can start using file before the download is complete.
To access, just click MOUC icon in the notification area or from Start menu (Start\Microsoft Office\Microsoft Office 2010\Tools \Microsoft Office 2010 Upload Center).
MOUC lists all cached files. Users can monitor the status of files that're in the process of being uploaded. Users can also manage cache settings to determine how long cached files are retained and to delete all cached files, if necessary.
When you install Office 2010, MOUC installs automatically. If you wish, you can remove the icon:
- In the Taskbar or System Tray, right-click Office 2010 Upload Center icon.
- Select Settings.
- Under Display Options, clear the check box for Display icon in notification area, and then click OK. The icon will no longer display in the Taskbar or System Tray.
