To easily select and deselect a number of files and folders you want to sync, use our Selective Sync feature. Learn how to use this below:

  1. Access Selective Sync mode by clicking the icon on the right side of the Insync app window.

2. To select all files and folders, click Select all. Files and folders with a greyed-out green check mark indicate that it’s already synced to your Insync folder. 

3. Double-click on a folder to expand it.

4. Select the parent folder to automatically include all the children for syncing. Folders with a greyed-out yellow check mark indicate that it’s partially synced.

5. Click Apply to save all the syncing changes. Files will queue on your Progress tab for syncing, and the Insync icon will have a blue badge.

6. You can press Undo to remove all selections you’ve made for Selective Sync. Click Cancel to leave the Selective Sync mode without making any changes.
