About inSync Share 

inSync Share is an add-on available with inSync that you can use to share and collaborate on content with others. If the inSync administrator has activated inSync Share for you and assigned you the appropriate rights, you can use inSync Share to:

  • Sync content between your devices.
  • Share content with other inSync Share users.
  • Share content with non inSync Share users.
  • Share download links for files in your device.
  • Share view only links for files in your device.

The inSync Share folder on your device

If the administrator has activated inSync Share functionality for you, a folder named inSync Share is created in your device. If you have multiple devices, the inSync Share folder will be created in all your devices.

The inSync Share folder is the home directory for all your shared data. Any file of folder within this directory is synced between all your devices. If you want to share files with others, you must move it to this folder. Similarly, files and folders other inSync Share users have shared with you will appear under this folder.

Note: inSync Share gives you the ability to selectively sync shared folders with your devices. This means you can have folders that are available in your inSync Share account, but not in the inSync Share folder in your devices.
