How to use Selective Sync 2.0

Selective Sync 2.0 has two modes: Cloud Selective Sync and Local Selective Sync.

Cloud Selective Sync

To sync a cloud file down to your local computer, use Cloud Selective Sync.

Simply click the Cloud Selective Sync icon on the upper right section of the interface and select the files and folders you want to sync.

Once you've selected your files, click Sync!

Access cloud files locally

Once your Google Drive or OneDrive files are finished syncing, they'll be stored locally in your Base Folder.

Each account you own will have its own separate Base Folder for easy management.

Local Selective Sync

To sync a local folder up to Google Drive or OneDrive, click the Local Selective Sync icon on the upper right section of the interface.

Your file manager will open so you can select the local folder for syncing. Confirm your selection to start syncing.

Insync also gives you the option to sync the folder directly under Files / My Drive, sync it under a folder, or merge it with an existing folder.

Local folders in the cloud

Once your folder is finished syncing, it will now be located in the cloud! No need to move or change its original file location.

Selective Sync 2.0 is just one of the many features of Insync
