DAO4Sync contains a Synchronization Engine which will keep your data within your DAO4Sync Drive and your Google Drive, Amazon S3, Dropbox or WebDAV Cloud Storage in balance. You can influence how the Synchronization Engine will work, synchronizing every file/folder operation (e.g. create, delete, rename, update etc.) automatically on remote side or only files selected by your choice.
