Using 360 Sync with Kenesto
Recently I was asked about whether or not 360 Sync connects to Kenesto. It was a new solution that I’d never tried to connect to before, so I gave it a shot. Turns out it works, and it’s pretty easy to set up.
First things first
The first thing you’ll need to do is log into Kenesto and download the Kenesto Drive app. You’ll need to download that if you want to automatically transfer files to/from Kenesto using 360 Sync. After you install Kenesto Drive, setup is pretty simple. Notice that whenever you open a folder using Windows Explorer the K: drive shows up. You can manually drag and drop files into the K: drive, and they’ll automatically pop up in Kenesto. On the other hand, you can use 360 Sync to automate this for you.
Project setup and configuration
From there, all you have to do is set up your configuration inside of 360 Sync. You’ll want to make sure that you choose Windows as either your source or destination (depending on whether you want your files to automatically sync to or from Kenesto). Pick the K: drive and/or any folder inside the K drive, and then save your configuration. You can repeat this process for as many folders or projects as you want.
Then, all you have to do is run 360 Sync. Remember, you can run it one of three ways:
- By copying the execution command and pasting it into a DOS prompt.
- By clicking “Create Launch Shortcut” and then clicking the shortcut icon on your desktop.
- By scheduling your sync to run automatically.
So that’s it. Now you can start syncing between Kenesto and everything else 360 Sync connects to automatically.
