How to use selective sync in Sync APP?

Selective sync is a feature in Sync APP, and it allows you to choose which folders you’d like to store on your computer’s hard drive from all of the folders you have stored in ASUS WebStorage.

To use Selective Sync, you must first install Sync APP on your computer.

 

Note:

  • By default, Sync APP is set to sync all of your folders in “MySyncFolder” to your computer. You can change it by using the “Selective Sync” feature. The folder you uncheck will be moved to your computer’s [Recycle Bin/ Trash], but they will still remain in the cloud.

  • Before using the "Selective Sync” feature, you need to make sure all the files within the folders have been successfully synced to the cloud.
