Synchronizing directories

How do I synchronize directories with the luckycloud?

Already synchronized directories can be recognized by the green cloud.

When synchronizing files that are located locally on your folder in the luckycloud, there are the following options: a) Download the online directory and save it on your computer by creating a new folder locally. b) Connect the online directory to an existing local folder on the computer and synchronize data with each other.

The first steps are equal for both possibilities:

  1. right-click on the directory you want to synchronize
  2. Select "Download and sync ".
  3. a dialog window opens. Here you must decide for possibility a) or b).

a) Download directory:

  1. under "change " select the location where the directory should be downloaded locally.

b) Connect directory with local folder:

  1. click on "synchronize with existing folder "
  2. Under "Change ", select the folder to synchronize with the online directory.
  3. Finally, confirm your selection with "ok " and the synchronization process will begin. As soon as the cloud in the client turns green, the synchronization is completed. The upload speed depends on your Internet speed.

Now you can create/change subfolders or documents within the synchronized folders and the changes ("snapshots") are automatically uploaded to the luckycloud.

Note: If you move the directory locally on your computer, the memory path will change and the synchronization process will be interrupted: The cloud in the sync client turns white. Synchronization can easily be resumed by b) connecting the directory to the local folder.
