Note: This is where it gets interesting.  By default, NetDocuments will allow you to only choose your most recent or your favorite workspaces to sync.  In your client Cabinet, you need to make sure that the files you want to appear have been recently opened or made favorites.  On Folder Cabinets, you can choose any folder to sync.
