How to sync files with Remote Drive?

Remote Drive makes your ASUS WebStorage files accessible as if they were stored in your computer's local drive. The difference from Sync App is that all your files will be stored on virtual drives, and you can easily access them through “File Explorer.”

Note:

  • Do not install Sync APP and Remote Drive on your computer at the same time to avoid file upload/download failure.

  • Remote Drive is only available for paid plan users.

  • Remote Drive is only supported on Windows operating systems.

 

Installation and login

  • To change the drive letter and name, you can select from the drop-down list and fill in the field.

  • If you tick the [Auto start when system reboots] checkbox in the lower left corner of the window, you can directly go to "File Explorer" to access files without having to log in again every time you restart the computer.
