FileCloud Sync allows synchronization of contents in a special folder called the “FileCloud Sync” folder. This special folder is created automatically when the FileCloud Sync app is installed on the computer.
The FileCloud folder can be accessed by double-clicking the “FileCloud Sync” application icon or by selecting the “Open Sync Folder” option in the options menu.

FileCloud Sync Icon Overlays and Extensions:
FileCloud Sync app on Windows shows overlays over each file indicating the sync status of the file.
See example below:
Quick Edit Requires the Sync App to be installed on the local computer.
- FileCloud Document Quick Edit allows you to select a document file (DOCX, DOC, PPTX, PPT, XLSX, and XLS) from the Web UI and automatically open it locally in its native document editor. Changes you save will automatically appear in the cloud as new versions. This function is ideal for users who need to edit files on their desktops, but do not want to install the FileCloud Drive or synchronize all the files to their local machine. It is also more convenient than downloading, editing, saving and uploading the saved version back to the cloud.
- To perform quick edit, first install the sync app locally on your computer.
When setting up the account information, you can select the mode to disable synchronizing and only provide document-editing support. If you leave it unchecked, you will be able to do Quick Editing as well as Offline Syncing.
- Next select any file in the web browser and then click on the "Quick Edit" option to download and open the file in the local document editing application.
The document is opened in an editor, for example, Microsoft Word. Simply edit as you would normally and then hit save. The file will be saved back to the server and notification shown that the version has been saved.
