Google Docs 2-Way Sync

Google-Docs-logoWith the 4.0 release of Gladinet Cloud Desktop, we now support a 2-way sync between storage services like Google Docs and a local folder. With Google Docs, the synchronization happens in real time so that your local folder is always exactly the same as your cloud folder.


How to Setup 2-Way Sync

The first step is the same as in version 3.0, you will need to install Gladinet Cloud Desktop and mount Google Docs into your Windows Explorer.


You can mount virtual directory from Gladinet Management Console.


After clicking Next, you will provide the Google Docs account information.


After it is mounted, you can see the Google Docs both in Management Console and Windows Explorer.

To setup 2-way sync, simply open the Gladinet Management Console from the systray menu, select "Advanced Backups" from the dropdown menu in the top left hand corner, select the 2-way sync panel and then click on "Create New Two Way Sync". This will allow you to sync any local folder with any of our supported cloud storage services.
