FileCloud ServerSync

Introduction to ServerSync

ServerSync Requirements:

  • Support for Windows only
  • Synchronized files must be on a physically attached disk to the machine running ServerSync
  • You cannot synchronize files located by a UNC or Network path

You can use FileCloud ServerSync to help synchronize a local Windows File Server with a FileCloud Server or FileCloud Online (hosted by CodeLathe).

Changes in the local Windows File Server are seamlessly synchronized to a remote FileCloud Server or FileCloud Online site. These changes include:

  • New files added
  • Edits to existing files
  • Files being removed

ServerSync can also optionally sync FileCloud's folder-level permissions.

  • The FileCloud permissions can be synchronized to local folders
  • These permissions are applied as NTFS Permissions

(warning) You must log in with the user account that is the original owner of the files for folder-level permission synchronization to work
