Sync to access the latest version of your data anywhere, anytime

Sync your entire MEGA Cloud drive, or selected folders, with your computer so that MEGA stays up to date with the changes you make to your files and folders on your computer, and vice versa. This way, you always have access to the most recent version of your data. You can use the app to add new syncs or change the states of the existing syncs — pause, suspend, disable, or run.

Back up to avoid losing irreplaceable data
