With the rollout of Office 365, the University is moving to OneDrive as the preferred cloud storage solution. You can find information about OneDrive here:
Before Syncplicity Sync & Share starts to synchronise the files and folders that you add to Syncplicity across your different computers/devices, it will check the on-disk information for each one. If it sees the same files on multiple computers/devices, it will do nothing. If it finds files that exist on one computer/device but not on another, it will synchronise them so they appear on all computers/devices.
If it finds files that have the same name but different contents, it will consider them conflicted and resolve the problem — see the related answer Conflicting file versions in Syncplicity for more information about this.
