Archive: Storing files in Jottacloud to save space locally on a computer or device(New WebGUI)

Jottacloud offers archiving for storing data in the cloud. Data stored in the Archive, can be deleted locally, to save harddisk space on a computer or another connected device.

Archiving can only be done when a user is logged into our website www.jottacloud.com , and previously archived data is available for download through the desktop clients and apps, as well as through the website.

It is really easy to archive data in Jottacloud. First you click "Synced files or Backed up files and tick the checkbox next to the folders and files you would like to archive:

Then you can choose between copying or moving the folders/files:

If you choose "Copy" you will have one copy in Synced/Backed up files and one in the archive. If you select "Move" you will only have the copy in the Archive left. If you want to free up space locally on your harddrive, you should normally select "Move"

 

After selecting move/copy, click the Archive in the window that pops up:

You can also choose to store your data in one of the subfolders of the Archive blu clicking that folder. Use the + and - icons to open or close a folder to see your folder structure.

Click "Move/Copy to folder" to confirm your selection and to move/copy the files to the Archive.

You will get a confirmation text on the top of the page:

The files can now be found by clicking on the archive tab:

 

PS! It is not possible to set up automatic archiving, you will have to do it manually each time.

You can upload files directly to the archive using the Upload function on the website, but it still has to be done manually.
