Introduction to Syncplicity for Windows

With the Syncplicity desktop client for Windows, you can synchronize any folder on your desktop. Syncplicity integrates with your operating system to provide seamless file management, backup, sharing, collaboration and access to all your files.

The desktop client works with your files and file locations, so you do not need to move files into a special folder. Right-click any folder and select Syncplicity > Add to Syncplicity. Once synchronized, you can share the folder or a file in it with other users. The client also supports using Windows File Explorer to access to all folders and files that other users share with you. The client provides automatic version control as you save updates to files.
