This article provides an explanation of how to utilize ASUS WebStorage for file storage and synchronization across multiple devices.
Accessing files on various devices
By storing your files in ASUS WebStorage, you can access them from various devices, including:
- ASUS WebStorage for Web through a web browser.
- ASUS WebStorage desktop application - ASUS WebStorage Sync or Remote Drive.
- ASUS WebStorage Mobile App on your mobile devices.
What is synchronization in ASUS WebStorage?
The synchronization process involves uploading files from your computer to the cloud and downloading files from the cloud to your computer. By utilizing the "MySyncFolder," all files will remain updated and synchronized across multiple devices. Any additions, modifications, or deletions made in one location will result in the same change in all other locations.
Comparing ASUS WebStorage Sync and Remote Drive
When using ASUS WebStorage Sync to synchronize your files from the cloud to your computer, it is important to note that the files will be saved to the computer's hard drive and occupy disk space. However, if you prefer not to consume hard drive space, you may use Remote Drive, which stores your files on a virtual hard disk.
Please note that ASUS WebStorage Sync and Remote Drive cannot be installed simultaneously on the same computer and that Remote Drive is only available to paid users.
