Creating folderPair

From the dashboard you can create a folderPair. A folderPair is a definition of a sync that you want FolderSync to perform. It defines a sync between a local folder on your device and a remote folder for your chosen provider type. A sync can sync files to remote cloud storage, to your local storage or both ways.

Create a new folderPair by pressing Create on folderPair card on the dashboard and select an account to use. An SD CARD account is a built-in account type to use to sync between folders on the device only.

For this example we will use our Google Drive account we added earlier.
