One should mention that CIFKM saves a "history record" of "Data Smart Boxes" and files in the server, so should any "Data Smart Box" or file be unintentionally eliminated it can always be recovered.

Besides, it also has "check-in/check-out" functionalities that allow any user to apply "check-out" on a file and work over it being it locked preventing other user to do changes as lo as check-out is activated..
