About Enterprise Cloud Sync

Cloud sync, as its name suggests, is simply moving your data from local infrastructure (a server or your personal computer) to the cloud, or from one cloud to another cloud. The Enterprise cloud synchronization is all about syncing files or folders stored at the business level.

To sync Enterprise cloud storage, one of the topmost reasons might be protecting confidential business data. Besides, it is also an effective way to keep the data of two organizations or businesses updated.

Sync Enterprise Files between Local and Cloud

To finish enterprise cloud sync from personal computers to clouds, or vice versa, you can choose a desktop application that can be synced with a specific disk partition or cloud-based folder. To make it clear, here we will take the Microsoft OneDrive app as an example.

Part 1. Sync from Local to Cloud

Download, install, and log into your Microsoft OneDrive account on your computer. If you are running Windows 10 operating system, you do not have to download and install Microsoft OneDrive since it has already been pre-installed on your computer. Its local folder location is C:\users\ username\OneDrive (Windows installs it on the C drive by default).

To sync from your local drive to OneDrive cloud storage, you can directly drag and drop target files or folders into the OneDrive local Folder in Windows File Explorer. After that, the Microsoft OneDrive tool will automatically synchronize them from local to the cloud.
