Syncing with Box Sync

Jennifer Pham's picture

Please select the operating system you are using for instructions on how to sync your files with Box Sync.

Keep in mind, only Editors, Co-Owners, and Owners are able to sync folders. Anyone with a lower permission level will not be able to sync their folders with Box Sync.
It is also recommended that you sync as little as possible. Syncing a large number of files and folders can degrade how well Box Sync works and impact your computer’s performance by increasing hard disk usage and bandwidth. Even when editing a single a file, Box Sync will scan your entire Box Sync folder before syncing it. Decreasing the size of your Box Sync folder can significantly enhance the speed of the Box Sync.
