Please note that GoodSync for WD is specifically designed for WD NAS. A WD NAS is required to use GoodSync for WD.
First, make sure you have installed GoodSync for WD. If you have not yet completed this step, you may review our installation tutorials here.
Next, make sure that you have installed and configured GoodSync on the WD NAS. If you have not yet installed and configured GoodSync on your WD NAS, review our tutorial here.
On installation, GoodSync for WD will automatically create an template job called "My Cloud NAS sync job". This template job can be configured as desired to fit your needs. You may also click on "New Job" at top-left to create additional jobs.
GoodSync for WD supports synchronization through network shares, Google Drive, Dropbox, GoodSync Storage, and our peer-to-peer protocol GoodSync Connect.
This tutorial will demonstrate how to sync a local folder on your Windows computer with a folder on your WD NAS using GoodSync Connect.
1) First, click the "My Computer" drop-down in the left section and select the local folder you would like to sync with your WD NAS.
2) Next, click on the "GoodSync Connect" drop-down on the right section, click on your GoodSync account to list all registered devices, and select the folder on the WD NAS you would like to sync with your local Windows folder. If you registered the same GoodSync account on both your Windows and WD NAS GoodSync installations, you should see your WD NAS listed here. If that is not the case, please review the next step.
Alternatively, if you do not see your WD NAS listed under your GoodSync account in the GoodSync Connect drop-down, you may click on the "Add" icon to add the GoodSync account registered to your WD NAS.
3) Once you have selected your desired left and right folders, you may click "Apply" to complete the creation of this job.
4) You have now created your first GoodSync for WD job! GoodSync will now automatically perform a synchronization anytime it detects any differences between the specified Windows and WD NAS folders.
Please note that by default, the job is configured to detect changes in real-time and perform a synchronization after an 120 second delay. If you would like to adjust this setting, you may click on "Options", select the "Auto" tab, and adjust the number of seconds for delay as desired.
