Sharing Files and Folders

You can share files or folders in you SafeSync folder with anyone using just a simple hyperlink. The recipient will be able to see the files and folders but not make changes to them. You can send this hyperlink through email messages, instant messages (IMs), or post them to any website you like.

For additional security, you can add a password to the shared folder so that only people who know the password can access the shared folder. You can also disable the link whenever you want, or even add an expiration date.
