How do I add folders for synchronization?

The instructions tell you to right click on a file and select ‘Sync to pCloud’, but for a first time user on a mac this didn’t work for me. What I had to do is to open the desktop app, goto the sync tab, and add a new folder (or file) manually first. Then I was able to use the right click function.

It seems that adding a file manually jogged this functionality to start working.

Can I use pCloud Sync and pCloud Drive at the same time?


Why does pCloud Drive not showing on my mac?

For me it wouldn’t show, and when I tried to ‘Enable Drive’ it wouldn’t work. A simple restart got things going correctly, however.

Does pCloud Sync take up hard drive space?

According to an email response I received from the company: “when you are syncing your files via the Sync option, no hard drive space will be taken.”

If you are uploading files and you lose internet connection, will they resume if your connection is restored?
