File Sharing Quick Start Guide

Before you go further, make sure you have already set up at least one folder for sharing (public or private). If not, see our Quick Start Guide.

Option 1: Get link

Click the 'Links' button on the main toolbar. This will bring up a window that will allow you to select which type of link you want to send (link to a web folder, link to a web file, direct link to a file, or direct link to thumbnails of a file). Once you've chosen what type of link to send, choose either 'Clipboard' or 'Email'. Choosing 'Clipboard' will place the link (URL) on the clipboard so that you can paste it into an email or chat session. Choosing 'Email' will prompt you to select friends from your friends list to send the link to.

Option 2: Show Folder

Click the 'Show' button on the main toolbar (to see an HTML [web] view of the current folder). This will open a Browser window to a page displaying the contents of a shared folder. You can copy the URL (address) to the clipboard and paste it into an email body, chat, instant message, etc. See an example page.

Option 3: Show File

Click the 'Show File' button on the second (smaller) toolbar (to see an HTML [web] view of the currently selected file). This will open a Browser window to a page displaying the contents of the shared file. You can copy the URL (address) to the clipboard and paste it into an email body, chat, instant message, etc. See an example page.

Option 4: Viewing other accounts from your account

When one of your friends signs into their account, and accepts your inviation to join, they will see you in their friends list. To see a friends shared folders, select a friend in the list and click 'View now.' The files and folders displayed will be from the friends account, filtered by what they have allowed you to see. From here, you can download, copy, etc. See the Help page to learn about how to copy files and folders between accounts.
