I. Manage Folders

To view folders from your Syncplicity account:

  1. Click the Syncplicity icon  in your taskbar.
  2. Click Manage in the Taskbar Panel.
  3. Syncplicity shows the Manage Folders window.

TIP: You can double-click any folder to view its contents in Explorer.

II. All Folders

This is an image of what happens when you click the drop-down for All Folders.

  • When you click this drop-down menu, you have the ability to specify the folders you want to view based on location. You can view All Folders in Syncplicity, folders that reside on your university-owned computer, or folders that may have been saved elsewhere and currently reside in the Cloud.

III. Private and shared

This is an image of the drop-down when you click Private and shared.

  • When you click this drop-down menu, you have the ability to specify the folders you want to view based on permissions. You can view files and folders you have designated as Private and shared; view only files and folders you have designated as Private; or view only files and folders you have designated as Shared.

IV. Stop synchronization

  • Clicking 'Stop synchronization' will disable Syncplicity from synchronizing any of your data to the cloud.
  • If synchronization has stopped, it will be replaced with a 'Sync to this computer' button. Click this button to have Syncplicity sync files and folders to and from your account in the cloud.

V. Share folder

  • Clicking this button will automatically launch your default web browser and open a page to specify the sharing capabilities for a particular file or folder, as seen below:

  • On this page, you have the ability to designate which users you wish to share a particular folder with. Further, you can add entire groups by searching the my Syncplicity company directory.
