Real-time and Scheduled Folder Synchronization
Folder synchronization can be very simple, e.g. Dropbox creates a special "dropbox" folder on your computer. Drag a file into the folder and it
will be synchronized to the cloud. Other companies like Box, Google Drive and Egnyte followed the same Dropbox design.
Such implementation is flawed when you need it for business.
DriveHQ’s folder sync feature was designed for business, and we had this feature long before Dropbox and others.
With DriveHQ service, you can select any folder on your computer (or an external drive / network drive) and synchronize it with the cloud.
You can create multiple sync tasks; you can set different sync schedules, and you can set one-way or two-way synchronization,
you can filter certain files/folders from being sync-ed, and you can even sync your local folder to a group-shared folder in the cloud.

why DriveHQ's folder sync is better
Egnyte uses a term “local cloud”, which is very confusing. What exactly is it?
“Cloud” means some service hosted in a remote data center that can be accessed over the Internet. If you bring the same service to local,
it will just be called “local” service instead of “local cloud”. Of course, such contradictory term can still impress some non-techie managers.
As we carefully reviewed their features, we found out their “local cloud” really just means a local folder synchronized with the cloud.
A personal local cloud means a local folder on a PC; an office local cloud means a local folder on a low-end storage device; and an
enterprise local cloud means a local folder on a higher-end storage device. You see that DriveHQ FileManager supported all these features many years ago.
Please make sure to install DriveHQ FileManager
client software. To synchronize a folder,
you can logon FileManager, select the folder and click on the “Synchronize” button. You can then select a folder to synchronize with.
