File Access & Sync with FileCloud Desktop

Users working with and collaborating on files often benefit from client applications that enable remote file access and synchronization, without relying on a VPN or web browser portal. This functionality is particularly useful for remote teams spread across distributed offices or work sites.

FileCloud Desktop is a unified client application for FileCloud users that supports anywhere-anytime file access and synchronization, directly from the user’s desktop. The client app makes content stored in FileCloud available as a local mapped folder directory location.

Efficient, Streamlined UX

With FileCloud Desktop, users can work with files online or offline. When content is updated in offline mode, changes are synchronized when a network connection is re-established.

The client application itself can be opened on the desktop, providing users with an easy-to-navigate dashboard that reflects live and recent file actions. It also compiles a list of downloaded files and folders and connects users with a settings pane for quick adjustments.

Use FileCloud Desktop

Once FileCloud Desktop is installed, the FileCloud folder becomes available in the user’s file directory. From the desktop client interface, a user can open and work with online files or download files to work offline.

Any changes are synced between the offline file and the environment when the machine is reconnected to the network, to ensure that all updates are reflected. Unlimited file versioning helps users preserve data integrity and resolve file conflicts.

From this desktop interface, a user can open and work with online files or download files to work offline. Any file modifications are immediately synced in FileCloud (if working online – if working offline, sync occurs once reconnected). Online files are displayed in the FileCloud folder with cloud icons; downloaded (offline) files are indicated by green check marks.
