How do you automatically add files you try to sync from Windows to Android?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks! 

It took me a while to realize that I had to click inside of Resilio Sync Android app on each file I sync from Win to Android in order to actually sync them, meaning to actually add them to the Android storage. I am guessing this function is made in order not to fill the storage of the Android phone.

Is there a way for the app to do this automatically? 

Thank you so much!

I guess the shared folder on your Android device is set to "Selective Sync" (by default), which means it's not automatically synchronized (to save your Android storage).

There are 2 ways to automatically synchronize files:

1. Turn off "Selective sync" for the folder that you want to automatically synchronize all files / folders in it

    From the Resilio Sync app, browse to the folder, tap on the ⓘ button next to it, turn off "Selective sync". Note if this is a huge folder with many files / sub-folders, this might cause lots of data transfer and big storage usage

2. Or, turn on "Keep synced" for the files you that you want to keep synchronized automatically

    From the Resilio Sync app, browse to the file, tap on the ⓘ button next to it, turn on "Keep synced". Note you need to do this for every file individually.
