Synchronizing Files

Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated Mac User Guide.

Webroot includes one preconfigured folder for synchronization, called the Anywhere folder. It resides under your personal folder on your Mac (\Users\[Username]\Webroot Anywhere). Any files you put in the Anywhere folder are automatically synchronized with your online account and with shared folders on other computers or mobile devices in your account.

To synchronize files using the Anywhere folder:

  1. Open SecureAnywhere (see Using the SecureAnywhere interface).

  2. Click the Backup & Sync tab.

  3. Click Open Anywhere Folder.

    Mac Finder opens to the Webroot Anywhere folder.

  4. Copy files or folders into the Webroot Anywhere folder.

    The files are instantly synchronized to your online SecureAnywhere account and to other shared folders on other computers (if you configured them).

    Note: Some files may fail to synchronize because their storage size is larger than the upload limit. You can adjust the limit in the Do not upload files larger than field in the Sync Settings panel. See Changing Backup and Sync settings.

  5. To see the amount of used storage in your account, look at the Storage listed on the Backup & Sync panel. If you want to check that your files were successfully copied, access your online account by clicking Visit the Webroot Cloud.

  6. When your browser opens to, log in to your account, click Go to Backup & Sync, then click Anywhere from the left panel.

    For more information about using Backups in your online account, see the SecureAnywhere Management Website User's Guide.
