One of the most common requests I get is for instructions on 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. Egnyte is used for secure enterprise file sharing.
To get started using 360 Sync with Egnyte, you’ll need to download the Egnyte Desktop app from the Egnyte 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 Egnyte Desktop app. Reference the following image.
If you go to C:\Users\<Your User Name>, you should see the Egnyte desktop app (for me it shows up as the X: drive). From there, you can set up your folders inside of Egnyte, or you can use 360 Sync to transfer them from one place to another.
Project setup and configuration
From there, you run 360 Sync. If you want to connect to Egnyte, you will want to select “Windows” as your source or destination location, because Egnyte leverages Windows. Pick the folders you want to sync and save the configuration.
From there, 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 Egnyte and everything else 360 Sync connects to automatically.
