Once it’s in­stalled on your ma­chine you can set the ap­pli­ca­tion to upload files from se­lected fold­ers au­to­mat­i­cally, en­sur­ing that your files are al­ways backed up.

It also has full sup­port for all com­mon file for­mats, giv­ing you a pre­view of the file. Se­lect­ing to down­load or share files is equally easy.
