WorkSpaces Desktop Client: PydioSync

PydioSync is the desktop client for your WorkSpaces. It is offers real-time synchronization of your WorkSpaces against a local folder on your computer. That means when you make changes in the folder on your desktop, or in the WorkSpaces area via your Web browser, the changes will automatically be made in the other direction. This ensures your files are the same locally and on the server.
