SyncMate – Establish Connection with Online Backup Account

Important: sync with Online Backup Account becomes unavailable since SyncMate version 4.x. Starting from this version Online storage can no longer be added as a new sync connection.

If you have upgraded from SyncMate version 3.x, it is strongly recommended to make backup of all data stored there (find your Online Backup Account in available connections list area). You won’t be able to connect to online storage anymore via Device connection wizard once you delete this connection.


Online Backup Storage permits you to backup your Mac’s data, so you don’t have to worry about information loss.
