The Briefcase allows you to synchronize data between a selected catalog on the user's PC and the Xopero server, as well as other devices in the user's account.
Files, which will be added to the Briefcase catalog, are automatically sent to the server disk, and analogically any change in the Briefcase space from another devices is performed on the user's local PC. Thanks to this, each device has the same state of the Briefcase.
The Xopero Briefcase is also encrypted on the user's part, so all data are sent and stored in an encrypted form. However, a different key is used to encrypt data in the Briefcase than in backups.
Configuring the Briefcase folder
The Briefcase folder can be declared from the Application settings. By default, the defined Briefcase folder is the User catalog, in which a directory named Xopero is created.
Using the Briefcase
The Briefcase performs all operations of data synchronization automatically, without user interference, you just have to add, change or delete a file in the Briefcase catalog. In the Briefcase tab, information about synchronized data is being displayed.
The upper section –Files to synchronization - contains a list of files which wait for synchronization, which are: sending, download or deletion. The lower band contains history of changes – latest synchronized files.
The Pause synchronization button causes the process of synchronization to stop, it can be resumed at any moment.
The Go to Briefcase button causes the Briefcase catalog to be displayed in Windows Explorer.
