Loading Files into Documents,  Pictures or the Company Shared Documents

 

*Files are transferred over the Internet, so when saving to the local computer or transferring to the cloud, transfers may take some time - depending on your internet connection/speed.

 

To bring over a file from your local computer to CloudSpace, you will need to first find the file and then copy it.  On the Navigation Pane, double click the Computer location to expand if it is not yet expanded.

 

 

All of the local computer's hard, network, and removable drives will be shown.  Double click the drive which contains the desired file to show all the directories within the drive. Select the directory where the file is stored in the Navigation Pane. All of the files and folders in that directory will be displayed in the Contents Pane.

 

 

Note: If the file is saved to your local Documents, Pictures or similar area, you will want to double click on Users, then select the folder of the your computer user name.

 

 

After locating the file you want to transfer to CloudSpace, select it in the Contents Pane.

 

 

If you wish to transfer two or more files at the same time, hold down the Control (CTRL) button on your keyboard while selecting each file in the Contents Pane with your mouse.

 

 

To copy the file(s), right click the file(s) and choose Copy.

 

 

Alternately, you can click the Copy Button in the File Explorer Bar located at the top of the Cloud Manager window.

 

 

Now you are ready to transfer the file(s).

 

Once again, you will need to highlight the CloudSpace directory in the Navigation Pane into which you wish to save the file(s).  Choose from Documents, Pictures, or the Company Shared Documents folders or any directory beneath those folders.

 

 

After selecting the desired CloudSpace directory, you can either right click in the Contents Pane and choose Paste...

 

 

Or click the Paste Button in the File Explorer Bar.

 

 

Your file(s) will then appear in the Contents Pane.

 

 

Note: The example above makes a copy of the files from your local computer into CloudSpace resulting in two distinct versions of the same file(s) which can then be edited or removed independently. Please be aware that changing one version does not affect the other. You can also choose to move a file from your local computer to CloudSpace by using the Cut feature in place of Copy.
