You can also drag and drop folders from your PC and sync it with your cloud.
Syncing Tips :
• Be aware of the sync your library on the PC, any changes you make on the PC or the browser, the client will automatically sync the libraries so they become identical. However if you don't sync the libraries, whatever changes you make on the browser, will not affect the library on the PC and vice versa.
• Do not sync libraries that you don’t need every day on your PC. It's unnecessary to use space on your PC. You can access your files either way through the browser or open files on the client by clicking right click on the library and then "OPEN CLOUD FILE BROWSER" option. In this way, you will be able to access files without downloading them.
• Quickly generate Download and Upload links by opening files on Cloud File browser on the client instead of going to the web browser.
