- Create a folder in local hard disk drive (e.g. FolderSync) which to be linked to the USB drive or network drive.
- In SugarSync client program (previously known as SugarSync Manager), add the local folder as a folder to sync to the cloud.
- After the new local folder is added and synced to the cloud, exit from the SugarSync client program by right click on SugarSync icon in the notification area / system tray, and choose Exit.
- Delete new local folder (e.g. FolderSync) which is now synced with SugarSync.
- Open a Command Prompt window, and change directory to the parent directory of which the local folder synced to SugarSync was previously located by using the ‘cd’ command.
- For example, if the ‘FolderSync’ is created in Documents folder, which is located under ‘\Users\User Name\Documents\’, then use the following command:
CD C:\Users\User Name\Documents
Replace ‘User Name’ with that actual name in the path.
- Use the ‘mklink’ command with the following syntax to create a Junction Point symbolic link from the local folder to folder in USB drive or remote location that wants to be synced with SugarSync:
MKLINK /J Link Target<
mklink /J FolderSync Z:\FolderSync
Of course, replace the name of the folders and paths with the actual names you’re using.
