Add files in the cloud

You can add your files to the Cloud either manually or automatically.

  • If you wish to synchronize your files on all your devices, it is better that you add your files manually.
  • If you only wish to make a back-up copy, it is better that you add your files via automatic back-up.

Adding files manually

If you add files manually, your files will be stored in the cloud and automatically synchronized on all the devices on which you have installed the Cloud application. This ensures that you always have the same version of your files on each device.

  • Adding files via your mobile or tablet
    1. On the start screen of the Cloud application, click the "Add to Cloud" button Add to Cloud button .
    2. Select the files you want to add. If you have an Android device you can often add your files directly via the Share menu Share button .
    3. The files are being added. You can follow the progress on your screen.
    4. You will see a confirmation message appear on your screen once the action is completed.
  • Adding files via your PC or Mac
    1. On the start screen of the Cloud application, click the "Add to Cloud" button Add to Cloud button .
    2. Select the files you want to add. You can also simply drag files from Windows Explorer or Finder OS X to the Cloud application.
    3. The files are being added. You can follow the progress on your screen.
    4. You will see a confirmation message appear on your screen once the action is completed.

Adding files via automatic back-up

If you add files via automatic back-up, it means you always have an up-to-date back-up copy of your files in the cloud If you change files on or remove files from your device, they will be automatically changed in or removed from the cloud as well.

Files that you save via automatic back-up are not automatically synchronized with your other devices.. You will therefore need to download these files from the cloud to your other devices.

  • Adding files via automatic back-up
    1. On the start screen of the Cloud application, click the Menu icon Menu icon .
    2. Choose Settings and then Automatic back-up.
    3. Select the folder(s) that you wish to save in the Cloud. Please note that you can only add the Pictures, Video or Contacts folders with your mobile or tablet.
    4. Click OK. From now on a copy of the chosen folder(s) will be automatically saved in the cloud.

If at a later point in time you stop the automatic back-up, the content that has already been backed up will remain in the Cloud, but it will no longer be updated.

    1. On the start screen of the Cloud application, click the Cloud icon het Cloud icon to open the Automatic back-up window.
    2. Select the folder(s) that you wish to save in the Cloud. With your PC or Mac you can add the Pictures, Video, Desktop, Music and Documents folders or any folder of your choice.
    3. Click OK. From now on a copy of the chosen folder(s) will be automatically saved in the cloud.

If at a later point in time you stop the automatic back-up, the content that has already been backed up will be moved to your Trash Can in the Cloud.
