Syncing a Folder Between Devices

In order to Sync a folder between devices, a user must create a ‘Rule’ to determine the desired outcomes. A rule offers several options to select sending folders, destination folders, destination device, and sync frequency. To sync a file with a rule, do the following steps:

Creating a Rule

  1. Open the Binfer app
  2. Click the ‘Sync’ tab under the ‘New’ dropdown menu
  3. Name the rule (E.G. Document Sync), and below it choose the ‘Source Folder’ which will be the sending folder
  4. Under the ‘Action’ tab, select the recipient devices for your Sync
  5. Under the ‘Options’ tab, type in the Destination Folder (if you know it) where the files will be stored on the recipient device
  6. Choose optional settings such as Manual or Automatic Sync, Two-Way Sync if you would like a full mirror between devices, and Minimum Age (see Advanced Sync Settings Help Doc for more information)
  7. At the top of the screen, select the Frequency of Sync at the ‘Check for Changes Every __ Min’ box
  8. Click the ‘+’ in the top left-hand corner to create your new rule
  9. If the Sync is manual, hover over the rule on the left and press Execute to run the Sync.

Important: Once a folder is selected it cannot be re-named without deleting the rule and restarting the process

Tip: If you try to sync the same folder again (with the same contact), it won’t work for obvious reasons.
