Online File Sync and Share
File Sync in IDrive is similar to a folder you carry in your flash drive everywhere, except for the fact that there is no flash drive! You will have access to your most critical data from any device, in a form as if it is on your local drive, and on your IDrive account.
The moment you modify files, the updates sync to the local drive of computers on which Sync is active and to your cloud account; thus you can instantly access the latest version of your files locally via a web browser, and using the mobile apps too!
Sync storage does not impact your backup storage. Sync storage limit matches your backup storage limits.
Sync your files and folders in real time across all the devices that you link using IDrive, and easily access them from anywhere! Although your mobile apps and web account are always in sync, you can choose to link only those computers on which you wish to keep files in sync.
On the Sync tab of the IDrive desktop app, click 'Open My Sync folder', to start sync and link the particular computer.
IDrive creates a unique local folder on the computer. Add files to this folder to sync them in real time. Whenever you modify files within this folder, the updates instantly reflect on all linked devices and vice-versa.
Go to the menu of the IDrive mobile app, tap on 'Sync'. Use your mobile to sync new files to all the linked devices. Access the files synced from PC, Mac, or via the web. You can also select some synced files for offline access.
Log in to IDrive.com and go to the 'Sync and Cloud Storage' tab. Upload or simply drag-and-drop files to sync them. Also, view, download, and share files synced from elsewhere. Access the recently deleted synced files from Sync's Trash.
Easily share any number of synced files with anyone you wish via email.
You can share synced files from your computer, mobile device, or via the web with your friends or associates for collaborative access. Once you log in to IDrive.com, you will find that all the backed up and synced files shared by you are listed in the 'Shared by Me' tab. You can view the shared files, edit their access rights, and even discontinue sharing them.
