Now more than ever, educational institutions and other organizations are becoming more mobile. A connected environment is an essential tool for any student or workforce. However, maintaining reliable file accessibility has led to several IT administrative challenges. File management issues are compounded when having to deal with public access or multi-user computers. One solution is to use popular file hosting cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive to save and share important documents. This method is a better alternative than moving and saving sensitive files on local ThawSpaces or USB drives which can be easily stolen.

With Cloud Sync, users will be able to manage their files by simply logging in with their company or school cloud storage credentials to easily access their files on the cloud directly from their desktops. Cloud Sync allows for seamless file management between a user’s computer and online storage with its automatic syncing feature. Admins will have the option to selectively sync specific folders, such as Documents or Downloads, they would like users to have access to on the cloud. Once a file is synced up, files are deleted, preventing any redundant copies while conserving local hard drive space.
The use of cloud services in school and business environments has made it easier to manage multi-user computers. The number of cloud-based file sharing users is set to increase as companies and educational institutions look for cost-effective ways to manage data storage. Solutions such as Cloud Sync are necessary to improve productivity, enhance accessibility and encourage collaboration between users.
