Desktop Client

The Content Anywhere Desktop Client lets you backup, restore, synchronize and share content on your computer within Content Anywhere and across other connected devices. Below are instructions for performing basic tasks.

Task How To
Access files Click the Summary tab of the Content Anywhere Dashboard and select Open Content Anywhere. The Dashboard provides key information about your content, including what has been backed up and when. It lets you choose which folders to sync, manage your desktop backup folders, upload music from your iTunes music collection, and configure Desktop Client settings.
Add files to backup Move files into the Content Anywhere folder using Windows Explorer on your PC or Finder on your Mac. Or go to the Backup section of the Content Anywhere Dashboard and select Add Folder.
Note: The content in the Backup folder is the content that you chose to backup. This content will remain even if you delete it from your computer.

Note: Selected folders will sync across all your devices. Unselected folders will not sync across your devices, but will remain in your Content Anywhere application on your desktop.

About Your Photos and Music:

1 When you organize your photos into Smart Folders on your computer, they are automatically converted into photo albums when the folder is backed up to Content Anywhere. Now you can go to the Photos view in the Content Anywhere Web Client and mobile apps for a richer photo browsing experience.
2 Once you create a Smart Folder you can add and remove content within the photo album. Smart Folders can be disabled in the Settings screen of the Content Anywhere Dashboard.
3 To move your iTunes music to Content Anywhere, go to the Music tab in the Content Anywhere Dashboard. Click Find Music. If you have iTunes installed on your computer and you’re logged into your account, Content Anywhere will present all of the music in your iTunes library. Select which songs to upload to Content Anywhere.
Note: If you do not have iTunes installed on your computer, the Music tab may not be visible to you.
