    If you have multiple computers you can sync your files between them using the Mypcbackup Sync Folder.

    All you have to do to sync files between computers is to download the Mypcbackup desktop application using the same logins as your main computer. There are no limits to the number of computers you can do this on.

    Once you have the desktop application installed on more than one computer you are ready to start syncing. All you need to do is drag and drop, copy and paste or use the right click context menu to move the files you want to sync into the Sync Folder.

    Once these files and folders have been synced they will instantly appear in the corresponding folder on your second computer. Any future devices that you install the application on will automatically retrieve existing synced files.

    Mypcbackup will automatically sync files in the Sync Folder without you having to do anything. There is no start sync button or any extra settings, everything will happen automatically for you. Last Update: 02/13/2014
