1 Using the Synchronization Client The owncloud Desktop Client remains in the background and is visible as an icon in the system tray (Windows, KDE), status bar (Mac OS X), or notification area (Linux). The status indicator uses overlay icons to indicate the current status of your synchronization. The green circle with the white checkmark tells you that your synchronization is current and you are connected to your owncloud server. The blue icon with the white semi-circles means synchronization is in progress. The yellow overlay icon with the parallel lines tells you your synchronization has been paused. (Most likely by you, by opening the client and clicking Account > Pause.) The gray icon with three white dots means your sync client has lost its connection with your owncloud server. When you see a white circle with the letter i that is the informational icon, so you should click it to see what it has to tell you. The red circle with the white x indicates a configuration error, such as an incorrect login or server URL.
2 Using the Desktop Client Menu A right-click on the icon opens the following menu: owncloud Desktop Client menu The Desktop Client menu provides the following options: Open owncloud in browser: Launches the owncloud Web interface. Open folder 'owncloud': Opens your local owncloud folder. If you have defined multiple synchronization targets, the window displays each local folder. Disk space indicator: Indicates the amount of space currently used on the server. Operation indicator: Displays the status of the current synchronization process or indicates Up to date if the server and client are in sync. Recent Changes: Displays the last six files modified, and shows the current synchronization status listing all changes since the last restart of the owncloud client. Settings...: The settings menu. Help: Opens a browser to display owncloud Desktop Client Guide. Sign out: Stops synchronization. Quits the owncloud Client, ending any currently running synchronizations. Using the Account Settings Window The Account window provides a summary for your owncloud account settings. You can manage which folders and files you want to synchronize, change your account settings, and pause and resume synchronization. To access and modify the account settings:
3 The fields and options in this window include: Connected to <owncloud instance> as <user> field: Your user account on an owncloud server. Add Folder... button: Add another folder to the synchronization process (see Adding a Folder). Pause/Resume button: Pauses the current sync (or prevents the client from starting a new sync), or resumes the sync process. Remove button: Removes the selected folder from the sync process. This button is used when you want to synchronize only a few folders and not the root folder. Storage Usage field: Displays how much space your files are using on the owncloud server. Edit Ignored Files button: Launches the Ignored Files Editor. Modify Account button: Use this to change your owncloud server settings by launching the account setup wizard (see accountsetup). Modify Account button: Use this to change your owncloud server settings by launching the account setup wizard (see accountsetup).
4 Adding a Folder The Add Folder... button enables you to add a new local folder to the synchronization process. To add a new folder: 1. Click the Add a Folder... button in the Account window. The Add Folder... window opens 2. Type a unique path and alias name to the folder, or use the Choose... button to open a graphical file picker. Nested synchronizations are not supported. You cannot add a folder that is already contained within another synchronized folder. In addition, you cannot add a higher level (parent) folder that contains a folder to which you are already synchronizing. By default, the owncloud Set Up Wizard synchronizes your entire owncloud account to the root folder of the owncloud server. If you wish to sync certain specific folders and not the entire root, you must first remove the root folder.
5 3. Click Next to continue. A window opens prompting you to select a remote destination folder on the owncloud server to synchronize. 4. Select a folder on the owncloud server to which you want to synchronize your newly added local folder. A server folder can only be synchronized with a particular client once. If you attempt to sync the root directory, you cannot sync with other folders on the server. Similarly, if you sync with folder /a, you cannot create another sync with /a/b, since b is already being synched. Editing Ignored Files The Ignored Files Editor provides a list of files that are ignored (that is, not synchronized) by the client and server during synchronizations. You may add additional files or directories that you want to exclude from the synchronization process. In addition to using standard characters, the Ignored Files Editor enables you to use wild cards (for example, using an asterisk * to indicate multiple characters or a question mark? to indicate a single character).
6 Using the Activity Settings Window The Activity window provides an in-depth account of recent synchronization activity. It shows files that have not been synchronized because they are on the ignored files list, or because they cannot be synced due to containing special characters that cannot be stored on certain file systems. You can open the Activity window in one of the following ways: Click Activity in the left frame of the owncloud Settings window. Invoke the window from the owncloud Desktop Client menu by selecting Recent Changes > Details... (See Using the Desktop Client Menu.) Using the General Settings Window The General settings window has options for launching the client at system startup, notifications, and using monochrome icons.
7 Launch on System Startup checkbox: Provides the option to check (enable) or uncheck (disable) whether the owncloud Desktop Client launches at system startup. By default, this option is enabled (checked) after you have configured your account. Show Desktop Nofications checkbox: Provides the option to check (enable) or uncheck (disable) notifications about sync activity. Use Monochrome Icons checkbox: Provides the option to check (enable) or uncheck (disable) the use of monochrome (visually less obtrusive) icons. This option can be useful on Mac OS X platforms. About field: Provides information about the software authors along with pertinent build conditions. Information in this field can be valuable when submitting a support request. Updates field: Notifies you of any available updates for the owncloud Desktop Client.
8 Using the Network Settings Window The Network settings window enables you to define network proxy settings, and also to limit download and upload bandwidth. Using the Ignored Files Editor You might have some local files or directories that you do not want to backup and store on the server. To identify and exclude these files or directories, you can use the Ignored Files Editor.
9 For your convenience, the editor is pre-populated with a default list of typical ignore patterns. These patterns are contained in a system file (typically sync-exclude.lst) located in the owncloud Client application directory. You cannot modify these pre-populated patterns directly from the editor. However, if necessary, you can hover over any pattern in the list to show the path and filename associated with that pattern, locate the file, and edit the syncexclude.lst file. Modifying the global exclude definition file might render the client unusable or result in undesired behavior. Each line in the editor contains an ignore pattern string. When creating custom patterns, in addition to being able to use normal characters to define an ignore pattern, you can use wildcards characters for matching values. As an example, you can use an asterisk (*) to identify an arbitrary number of characters or a question mark (?) to identify a single character. Patterns that end with a slash character (/) are applied to only directory components of the path being checked. Custom entries are currently not validated for syntactical correctness by the editor, so you will not see any warnings for bad syntax. If your synchronization does not work as you expected, check your syntax.
10 Each pattern string in the list is preceded by a checkbox. When the check box contains a check mark, in addition to ignoring the file or directory component matched by the pattern, any matched files are also deemed fleeting metadata and removed by the client. In addition to excluding files and directories that use patterns defined in this list: The owncloud Client always excludes files containing characters that cannot be synchronized to other file systems. Files are removed that cause individual errors three times during a synchronization. However, the client provides the option of retrying a synchronization three additional times on files that produce errors. For more detailed information see Ignored Files.
