On the Local Folder Option screen you may sync all of your files on the cloudShare server, or select individual folders. The default local sync folder is cloudShare, in your home directory. You may change this as well.

Select which remote folders to sync, and which local folder to store them in.

When you have completed selecting your sync folders, click the Connect button at the bottom right. The client will attempt to connect to your cloudShare server, and when it is successful you’ll see two buttons: one to connect to your cloudShare Web GUI, and one to open your local folder. It will also start synchronizing your files.
