Use Box Sync to Mirror Files Across Devices

Box Sync is a productivity tool that allows you to mirror data stored on Box to your desktop. You can then navigate and modify content stored on the Box website through your computer’s native file browsing interface, without using a web browser. Content that syncs down to your computer are available for offline access. If you make changes to the synced files locally, these changes automatically sync back up to your Box account.

Installation Instructions

1) Download the Box Sync Installer.
2) Run the Box Sync Installer and launch Box Sync.

3) At the first login screen enter [UCSB NetID]@ucsb.edu and your UCSB NetID password.
4) At the second login screen enter [UCSB NetID] and your UCSB NetID password.
You can now start syncing files and folders by placing them in the Box Sync folder on your desktop or in the left sidebar of File Explorer. Everything that you place in this folder will sync to your Box account across all devices.
