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!
