To set mandatory folders for mobile backup

  1. On the Endpoints console, click Profiles.
  2. Select the profile for which you want to configure folders for backup.
  3. Go to the Edit option at the top right, and click the Endpoints tab from the dropdown. The Edit Profile window appears.
  4. Under the Smartphones /Tablets, select the Enable Mobile Backup checkbox.
  5. Select Android to add the folders for backup. 
  6. Click +Add Folder.
    • In the Folder to be backed up field, enter the relative path of the folder to be backed up from the SD card. For example, /Download.

      Note: The folder name is case sensitive. 

    • In the Backup folder name field, inSync automatically assigns the folder name that you specified in Folder to be backed up box. To change the folder name, type a name for the backup folder. 

      Note: If there is an existing folder with the same name, then inSync updates the folder name to New Folder and appends the number to the folder. For example, New Folder 1.

    • Select the Include data from external SD card also checkbox, if you want to back up specific folders from the external SD card.
