Save Hard Drive Space

Modified on Thu, 08 Jun 2023 at 10:33 AM

If you have old files or folders that you don't frequently use but still want to retain for future reference, you might be concerned about the space they occupy on your hard drive. So, how can you eliminate them without losing them altogether?

ShareSync simplifies this process by enabling you to store those files and folders exclusively in the cloud instead of on your hard drive. This way, you can free up valuable hard drive space while ensuring that your files remain accessible whenever you need them.

Offload Files to The Cloud

1) Open ShareSync Settings.

2) Go to the "Folder Selection" tab.

3) Click the "Subfolder Settings" option next to the top level folder you want to offload (in this case all subfolders of ShareSync).

4) Un-check the folders or subfolders you want to offload to the cloud.

5) Give ShareSync up to 15-minutes to commit these changes and remove the folders.

To restore the folders to your machine, simply reverse this process.
