I’m often asked to demo the connectivity between 360 Sync and document repositories like Box, Dropbox, Egnyte, Google Drive, and Sharefile. You can refer back to the Applied Software blog for other videos and blog posts that show exactly how 360 Sync works with each solution.
First Things First
The first thing you’ll have to do is download the Box sync app from the Box website and install it on your computer. One easy and quick way to make sure it’s installed is to open a folder and find the Box Sync app. View the image below. If you go to C:\Users\<Your User Name>, you should see the Box Sync app. From there, you can set up your folders inside of Box, or you can use 360 Sync to transfer them from one place to another.
Just set up your configuration by selecting the folder or subfolder you want to move files from. Then select the folder you want to move the files to. If you want to go to or from multiple places, it’s easy to do. Just create another mapping inside of your configuration.
Project setup and configuration
Next, you can run 360 Sync. Remember, if you want to connect to Dropbox, you will want to select “Windows” as your source or destination location (because Box leverages Windows). Pick the folders you want to sync and save the configuration.
From there, you run 360 Sync. Remember you can run it one of three ways:
- Copying the execution command and pasting it into a DOS prompt.
- Clicking “Create Launch Shortcut” and then clicking the shortcut icon on your desktop.
- Scheduling your sync to run automatically.
So that’s it. Now you can start syncing between Box and everything else 360 Sync connects to automatically.
