CloudMe Sync Part 1- Upload Sync

Looking for customized syncing above and beyond our preset Blue Folder? Then CloudMe Sync is for you! Let’s start by exploring the first type of sync offered by CloudMe – Upload sync.

Use Upload sync for an easy upload of your files as well as for scheduled automatic daily backups. With Upload sync, your files will only be synced one way –up to your CloudMe account.

Examples of Upload Sync folders

  1. Pictures– Ensure that all your pictures are synced daily to the cloud
  2. Music – Easily upload your music so you can listen to it anywhere
  3. Computer backup – Schedule a daily backup of your computer files for peace of mind

Tutorial –How to create a new Upload sync folder.

The following instructions will help you setup an Upload sync folder for your pictures.  That way every time new pictures are saved to your computer, they’ll be backed up daily to your CloudMe account. Access, view and share them while on the go from our iPhone/Android app or log in to our web access from any computer or device.

Now, just open your CloudMe Sync application and we’ll get started!

3 Easy Steps to Create a new Upload sync folder – Ex. Pictures*

  1. Hello from Athens,
    I have already my free cloudme account.
    Before I tell my friends about the gift of free space by referring them to CloudMePlease, could you please answer to some questions?
    How many members can share a free account? Could I share it with 5-6 friends or with my 22 students?
    If yes how does it work? Just giving them my username and password to log in?
    Is it possible for many users to enter simultaneously the same account?
    Thank you a lot!

      Hi from Sweden, Dimi!

      Great question. Even better, I think you’re really going to like my answer.

      My recommendation for your situation is to NOT share an account. I recommend that you refer 5-6 friends and even all 22 students to open their own free 3 GB account with CloudMe. This is a win-win situation for you and your friends/students because when they accept your referral to join CloudMe, you will both receive an extra 500 MB of free bonus space – up to 16 GB.

      The best way to share material with your friends/students is to create a folder and then share it as a password protected WebShare. Your friends/students then Favorite your WebShare so it is accessible every time they log in to their CloudMe account. You have the ability to add/update/delete items from that WebShare at any time and they will always have access to the latest information you make available to them which they can then view or download.

      Your students could then do the same with you. What a great way to share course material!

      Let me know how it works out!
      Monica
