There are three main ways to sync your peripherals: as your Base Folder (main sync location), from local to cloud, and cloud to local (aka custom location).

Note: network drives syncing is supported on the Developer and Company plans.

Assign your peripherals as your Base Folder

  1. When adding your account, choose your preferred peripheral as your Base Folder on Step 2 of the onboarding process (for this example, we're using a Google account).

  2. If you'd like to change your Base Folder at a later time, here's how to do it.

Sync a local directory or network drive to the cloud

  1. Use our Local Selective Sync feature to sync a local directory or network drive to the cloud. Users on the current desktop plans may choose the 1-way sync option. Note that this feature works for folders, but not individual files.

  2. You will be asked where you'd like to sync it to: directly under the root of your Drive (as a standalone directory), under a folder (as a subdirectory), or merge contents with a folder (the contents of the cloud and local folders will be combined).

Sync a folder to a custom location outside of your Base Folder

Do you want to sync your folders to a custom location outside of your Base Folder? Here's how:

  1. Open Insync and navigate to your cloud directories. Select a folder to sync by following our Cloud Selective Sync guide. Users on the current desktop plans may choose the 1-way sync option. Note that this feature works for folders, but not individual files.

  2. You will be asked where you'd like to sync it to: your Base Folder (as a standalone directory), inside a folder (as a subdirectory), or merge with a folder or drive (the contents of the cloud and local folders will be combined). The 2nd and 3rd option allow you to sync it to a custom location.

  3. A pop-up window will appear. Choose your preferred peripherals and click OK.

  4. More information on Step 2 of this section can be found here.
