Ways to Upload and Download Files

Overview


To ensure you always have convenient file access wherever you go, Egnyte provides multiple ways to upload and download files to the Cloud. You can sync files from your desktop, quickly transfer large files, and access files on the go from mobile devices. This article outlines the various methods available to you.

Most of our suggested methods preserve timestamps, however, there are some exceptions. If you're downloading a single file, the browser will cause the time stamp to be set as the time of download. Unfortunately, this browser behavior cannot be changed. Also, when downloading a ZIP file, the modified timestamp may or may not be preserved depending on the ZIP client.

Note: If you are looking to perform a large scale data migration, please refer to this article on the Helpdesk.

Desktop Sync 

While working remotely, Desktop Sync gives you a fast way to access files from your desktop even when internet connection is slow or completely down. With Desktop Sync, company files in the cloud are saved right to your desktop and updated automatically. If your internet connection goes down, keep working on your files, and changes will automatically sync later when internet connection is restored.

Desktop App

Egnyte Connect Desktop App provides you a way to access all of your data from your desktop without requiring local storage space as long as you have a persistent Internet connection. Please keep in mind that you will temporarily need up to twice the storage space to upload new files (one copy to actively edit and one copy queued for upload). This local disk space will be cleared as files are successfully uploaded.

Storage Sync – NETGEAR, VMware, or Hyper-V

If you’re already using a traditional file server in your office or want to have a local copy of your data, Egnyte provides Storage Sync. Storage Sync bi-directionally syncs company files between your office file server and the cloud so you can access files on the server quickly when you’re working in the office, or retrieve them from the cloud when you're out of the office.

When you’re on the go and have only your mobile phone or tablet with you, you can access your files right through one of our mobile apps.
