A profile is a set of configuration that are applied to a set of users. Using profiles, you can define generic backup configuration parameters that are automatically applied to all the users that belong to that profile. You can create unlimited number of profiles in inSync. You can create a new profile or create a copy of an existing profile and later modify its properties. Profiles ensure easy management of users because you no longer need to manage individual users. Using profiles, you can manage the following properties:

  • User quota
