BuckeyeBox Sync 4

BuckeyeBox Sync

Box Sync 4.0 has a new efficient algorithm that is built to scale, and provides users with improved performance and reliability.  More information and complete documentation of Sync 4.0 can be found here: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/sections/200142218-Box-Sync-4-0

What you need to know:

If the files on a user’s desktop in the older version of Sync are not completely in sync with what’s on the Box website, Box Sync 4 uses what’s on the website as the starting point and puts any additional/edited content on a user’s desktop in a new “My Box Files [Backup]" folder. That way none of your users’ work is lost, and they can decide which of those files need to be moved over to Sync 4 and updated as well on the web app. More details on this can be found here: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/200852697-How-do-I-upgrade-from-Sync-3-to-Sync-4-
