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. Add a sync folder

 a. Click “Add a sync folder”

 b. Under the Cloud Drive tab – double click to open the “Documents” folder and select “Pictures”

     c. Under the Local folders tab – select your “Pictures” folder from your local computer and click “OK”
2. Change Sync type

     a. Select the “Picture” sync folder you just created

b. Under “Sync type”, select “Upload” (Note: The default sync type for new sync folders is Bidirectional. The double  arrows on the sync folder will change to a single upward arrow once you select “Upload”)

     c. Exit this window

3. Set Scheduler

     a. Click on the cogwheel (Settings) icon

     b. Under “Scheduler”, check the box “Use scheduler”

     c. Choose daily or weekly then click “OK”

*Repeat this process for every folder on your computer, such as Music and Documents, that you’d like to backup daily by creating their own Upload sync folder.

Create as many Upload sync folders as you wish!

Take a load off your mind. Safeguard your pictures, music, documents –heck, your entire laptop’s files from loss, theft or damage by setting an automatic daily backup for them.  With CloudMe Sync, just set it and forget it!
