Access Files on the Road

Egnyte’s mobile apps enable you to access your files from anywhere in the manner that’s most convenient to you. You can preview files in your Egnyte account, download them to your phone or tablet for offline use, view photos in an image gallery, and more.

Desktop Sync

Desktop Sync (available on Windows and Mac) allows you to store copies of the files in your Egnyte account on your computer. Your files will sync with the cloud in real-time when you have an internet connection. This allows you to stay productive even when you don’t have internet access, secure in the knowledge that your changes will sync to the cloud once you’re back online.

Egnyte Drive

Egnyte Drive provides fast real-time access to the files and folders stored in your Egnyte cloud file server from a familiar Mac Finder or Windows Explorer interface. Egnyte Drive is a great option if you want to view and edit your files without having to first sync them to your computer. Files opened using Egnyte Drive will be locked across various access points (Web UI, Map Drive for Windows, WebEdit, and other Egnyte Drive clients), effectively preventing version conflicts.

WebEdit

Egnyte’s WebEdit enables you to select a file from our Web UI and automatically open it in its native application. Changes you save will automatically appear in the cloud as new versions. This lightweight product is ideal for users who need to edit files on their desktops, but don’t want to install Egnyte Drive or Desktop Sync.
