Introduction to Syncplicity for Windows

With the Syncplicity client for Windows, you can sync any folder on your desktop including your Documents, Desktop, Pictures and other folders. Syncplicity integrates with your operating system to provide seamless file management, backup, sharing, collaboration, and access to all of your files.

The Syncplicity Windows desktop client works with your existing files and file locations so you never need to move files into a special folder. Just right-click any folder and choose Add to Syncplicity. Once synced, you can easily share the folder, or a file within it, with other users. The client also allows local file browser (Windows Explorer) access to all folders and files that other users share with you. The client provides automatic version control as you save updates to files.
