What Do You Want To Do?

   

 Configure Backup Settings for All Users

Table 1. User Backup Settings in the Admin Dashboard

Settings NameDescription
Allow Users To BackupThis setting allows users to backup files and folders using the Cloud Sync app
Allow Camera Uploads

This settings allows Mobile clients (As of FileCloud v5.0, the FileCloud iOS and FileCloud Android app has this support), to backup the photos and videos automatically to their FileCloud accounts.
Turning off this setting will prevent this server from being used to backup the audio/video files. 
This path cannot be changed.

All the camera upload will be stored in the user's backups folder.
For example, if the user name is jdoe, the camera uploads will be stored in /jdoe/backups/<phone name>

NOTE: This location cannot be synced
