Creating a Qbox Sync Folder

QboxLogo_For_Articles

Sync folders are the folders you get billed for because they store/sync files and they are the folders that are shared with other users. Sync folders can be created by the account owner or team admin at the Qbox Plus Web Dashboard or in the Qbox Client/Explorer.

Creating a Sync folder at the Qbox Plus Web Dashboard:

  1. Log into your account at the Qbox website (www.qboxplus.com).
  2. On the ‘Folders and Files’ page, click the ‘New Folder’ button to create a Sync folder. 
  3. To invite users to this new folder while logged into your account at the Qbox website (www.qboxplus.com), please select the green share button to the right of the folder name.

If you do not see the ‘New Folder’ button, follow these instructions to create your own folders:

  1. Select the ‘Admin’ button near the top right of the Web Dashboard.
  2. Click the ‘Create My Folders’ button on the left.
  3. Create your Root folder.
  4. Create Sync folder(s) and invite any users you would like to have access using the ‘Email Id’ boxes. If you need to invite more users, you can do so later on the ‘Folders and Files’ page. 

Creating a Sync folder in the Qbox Client/Explorer:

  1. Open your Qbox Client/Explorer. 
  2. Select your Root folder on the left (topmost folder icon with an ‘R’ in it)
  3. Right-click in the empty white space on the right-hand side, and select ‘NewFolder’ from the menu to create a new Sync folder. 
  4. To invite users to this new folder, log into your account at the Qbox website (www.qboxplus.com), and select the green share button to the right of the folder name.

If you do not see the ‘NewFolder’ button and you have access to multiple Root Folders, please ensure you are selecting the Root Folder you own and try again. You may find the name of the Root Folder you own by logging in to our Web Dashboard, selecting the ‘Admin’ button near the top right, then selecting ‘Profile’; your Root Folder name will be displayed on this page.

If you do not see a name listed next to “Root Folder”, follow these instructions to create your own folders:

  1. Select the ‘Admin’ button near the top right of the Web Dashboard.
  2. Click the ‘Create My Folders’ button on the left.
  3. Create your Root folder.
  4. Create Sync folder(s) and invite any users you would like to have access, using the ‘Email Id’ boxes. If you need to invite more users, you can do so later on the ‘Folders and Files’ page.
