About Docstoc Sync
Docstoc Sync is a downloadable application that runs on your PC or Mac. You can
select which folders you wish to sync with Docstoc. The application will check these
folders for changes and automatically sync any new or updated documents with Docstoc
MyDocs. By default, Docstoc Sync will upload and sync all your documents privately
on Docstoc, so no one else can view these documents without your permission. In
addition Docstoc Sync installs a folder on your desktop called "Docstoc Public Documents",
where you can easily upload any document to Docstoc publicly.
Installing Docstoc Sync
Click here to download and install Docstoc Sync.
After the install, you’ll see the Docstoc Sync welcome screen. Here you can set some of the initial settings for Docstoc Sync. Before clicking start
1) Publish all documents I add to the Docstoc directory on my desktop as Public
By default, Docstoc Sync will create a new folder on your desktop called “DocStoc
Public Documents”. Any files (or even folders) you drag and drop here will be uploaded
as public documents to Docstoc. Any subfolders you create in your Docstoc Public
Documents folder will be mirrored on your Docstoc MyDocs.
2) Synchronize documents under My Documents as Private
Your My Documents folder (on PC) or your Documents folder (on Mac) will automatically
be synced with your Docstoc MyDocs – all your documents will be uploaded and stored
privately and secure on Docstoc for any time, anywhere access. All documents in
these desktop folders will be continuously updated, so any new documents you create
and save to your my Documents folder on your desktop will automatically be on Docstoc
MyDocs without any additional work.
3) Select additional directories to synchronize
If you store documents in other folders on your computer you can also sync these
files using Docstoc Sync. Simply check this box and click start. On the following
screen, click “Add a Directory” to specify your additional directories. You can
set Docstoc Sync to find and sync all documents on your computers with Docstoc MyDocs.
