The CloudSync feature is designed to synchronize your bookmarks between 2 WebSite-Watcher installations, for example between your PC and your Notebook. This feature must be called manually each time you want synchronize your bookmarks.
You can either use a user defined folder on your network or a Cloud service to synchronize your bookmarks. If you want to synchronize your database via Cloud, you have to install the client of your Cloud provider that synchronizes a local folder with the Cloud.
This is a typical workflow when you alternatively work on your PC and your Notebook:
|1.||Monitor bookmarks on your PC|
|2.||Call CloudSync on your PC|
|3.||Call CloudSync on your Notebook (then your Notebook should have the same bookmarks and bookmark configurations as your PC)|
|4.||Monitor bookmarks on your Notebook|
|5.||Call CloudSync on your Notebook|
|6.||Call CloudSync on your PC|
|7.||Monitor bookmarks on your PC|
Before you use CloudSync the first time, you have to ensure that both installations have the same database installed. You can also use the CloudSync feature for this task:
|1.||On your PC, call CloudSync and select the option "Backup to folder"|
|2.||On your Notebook, create or open a database with the same name as on your PC (for example bookmark.wsw)|
|3.||On your Notebook, call CloudSync and select the option "Restore from folder"|
Now you have the same bookmark database and bookmarks on both installations and you can now use the option "Synchronize with folder" on both installations.
|•||The CloudSync feature synchronizes all bookmarks in the opened database. It's not possible to synchronize just single folders or selected bookmarks.|
|•||Complete bookmarks are synchronized (all settings + cache files). It's not possible to synchronize just the bookmark settings without the cache files or the last check/change time.|
|•||Enter a password if you want to encrypt all bookmarks in the Cloud. WebSite-Watcher uses AES-256 for encryption. If you change or enter a new password, you have to use the option "Backup to cloud" once to save all bookmarks to the Cloud with the new password.|
