Browsing files on the server
When a normal user connects to the Syncrify web interface, they can view files that are backed up on the server. The following image display a screen shot of what a user see when they connect to Syncrify server using a browser.
Using this interface they can view as well as download any file to any machine.
Click the right mouse button on any file to download or preview contents. Note: You can only preview files that are displayed inline by a browser, for example, Text files, Images, PDFs or HTML. Try to preview non-viewable files, such as EXE, DLL or any other binary file will cause the browser to download it .
- To download multiple files, check the box next to the file and then select Download by clicking the right-mouse button. When multiple files are selected for download, Syncrify will create a zip file containing the desired files and will send one file over the network.
