Image RemovedImage AddedFileCloud Sync has two types of synchronization engines.

  • A real-time synchronization engine 
  • A Periodic Synchronization engine

Real-time Synchronization 

Real-time synchronization will synchronize files as they change locally and with minimum delay from the server.  You can initiate a sync at any time immediate using the "Sync Now" option. Real-time synchronization works for all files inside Managed Storage (My Files and Shared with Me) as well as for network folders setup with Real-time sync (Which is in beta).

Periodic Synchronization 

Periodic synchronization will synchronize files on a specified time interval starting at every 30 minutes, 1 hour etc.  You can initiate a sync at any time immediate using the "Sync Now" option. Periodic synchronization works for all files inside Network Folders. Backing up files from local computer to Remote server is also a form of Periodic synchronization.
