The Desktop Sync application synchronizes files between the client and Alfresco server. Currently its orientated to work with alfresco share part of the system. (Does NOT work with alfresco cloud service)
To log-in you must enter your account id, password and URL in format - http://ip:port/alfresco/api (ex: http://www.websiteurl.com/alfresco/api or http://127.0.0.1:8080/alfresco/api)
You can find the files that are being synchronized in "my documents" folder
When updating or reinstalling the application we would highly recommend deleting Desktop sync data files from %UserProfile%/appdata/local/ folder and desktop sync files from %UserProfile%/Documents/ folder. This is to remove any old data entries that may be invalid and cause various problems.
You should also delete these files if you want to start fresh (files will be generated if not found on launch)
NOTE: It is a must to remove old data when updating to 0.9.6
