Step 2: Select the First Folder (Synchronize Task)


This page describes the second step of creating a synchronize task with the New Task Wizard.

Selecting the first folder for syncing

Technically, all data sources are plug-ins, and usage of some plug-ins requires you to have an appropriate license. During the trial period, you can use all plug-ins without any limitations. After registration, the list of plug-ins will be limited, respectively to the edition you register. To learn more, please refer to Registration...

To select a folder for synchronization, follow these steps:

  1. (Server edition only) At the top left corner of the window, select Workstation that contains the folder that you want to synchronize.
  2. In the left pane (Data Sources), select a source of data. For example, if you want to synchronize a network folder, select Network.
  3. In the right pane (Folder Selection), select a folder you want to synchronize. Don’t worry about direction of synchronization: it is set in the next steps.
  4. When finished, click Next.
