Qsync provides multiple ways of file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of collaboration.
Sync files across devices
Whenever you add, edit, delete or rename a file on one computer, the change applies to all others linked with the Turbo NAS, so you have exactly identical contents on all your devices.
Save up device storage
It allows you to remove files on one computer without affecting the copies stored on others that are linked with the Turbo NAS. However, when someone updates the files your deleted from another computer, you can still retrieve them in the Qsync folder.
Sync selective sub-folders
When synchronizing files, you can choose to only sync specific sub-folders within the Qsync folder, useful if your computers have limited storage.
Share team folders with different groups of people
Your life is connected with different groups of people. You can create sub-folders within the Qsync folder, and share each with different groups of Turbo NAS users as a file exchange center. Everyone in the same sub-folder is always kept up-to-date with the latest version of the files.
Quickly share files with download links
You can create download links to share files with people, even if they don’t have an account on the Turbo NAS. This greatly reduces the time in creating user account and password for users just to share less-important documents.
