Making Any Folder into a SafeSync Folder on a Mac

Sometime you might not want to move files into the SafeSync folder, but still want to use them on other devices or share them online.

SafeSync lets you select any folder on your Mac and turn it into another SafeSync folder, with a copy of the contents stored online. The name of the folder will not change, but you can then access, share, and update everything inside through the Internet, just like you would with the SafeSync folder.

To make any folder into a SafeSync folder:

  1. Sign into Trend Micro SafeSync.
  2. Right-click a folder and click Make this a SafeSync folder.
  3. Specify a name for the online copy of the folder or choose an online folder that you have already set up.
  4. Click Finish.

If you change your mind later, just right-click the folder, click SafeSync on the list of options that appears, and click Stop Syncing. The files in that folder will remain on your Mac and online; but any new changes you make to files on your Mac will not be copied online, or vice versa.
