How do I sync my files?
The File Sync feature enables Windows PC users to easily synchronize a folder's content between the host and client computers.
File Sync is bi-directional, meaning files are transferred in either direction until both sides match. When files with the same name exist on both ends, you have the option to copy the newer file, copy the older file or skip the file.
This feature is not available for Mac computers.
- Select File Transfer:
- From the Viewer menu bar, select .
- Or click the File Transfer button in the upper right-hand corner of the Viewer window.
- The File Transfer and Sync window opens. The files from your remote computer (host) are displayed in the left pane and files from your local computer (client) are displayed in the right.
- In the Host pane, browse to the folder you want to sync. Repeat in the Client pane.

- Indicate how you prefer GoToMyPC to handle different files with the same name and click Continue to begin synchronization.
