ShareSync File Server Sync is an application that can be installed on Windows File Servers and is used to:

  • Sync all or a subset of the File Server content to the cloud which makes it accessible from remote offices, mobile devices and easily shareable with internal and external collaborators
  • Migrate File Server content to ShareSync in case you no longer require a File Server

ShareSync File Server Sync is a file-sharing technology that allows creating mappings between a File Server and the cloud. Often users cannot or prefer not to replace a file server, so there are two main scenarios for File Server Sync usage:

  • The local server will stay in place, then ShareSync will be used as backup and external sharing solution for a local file server
  • File Server Sync replaces a local file server.

When you no longer require the File Server, the app can be used to migrate File Server content to ShareSync.

Note: ShareSync File Server Sync is a chargeable service. Visit your Account > Plan & Pricing page for more information.

The app is supported on:

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 (Windows Server 2012 Standard/Foundation is NOT supported)
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2019
