Select a specific folder for sync

Using Selective Sync, you can exclude those folders that you do not want to sync to your device. All excluded folders will be deleted from your device. However, all the shared content is available on inSync Web and will be stored in the inSync Server.
The Selective Sync setting is device specific. If you replace your device, the settings are not applicable to the new device.

To select specific folders for sync

  1. Start the inSync client.
  2. In the navigation pane, click Sync & Share.
  3. In the right pane, click Selective Sync. The Select Folder window appears.
