Click on SSL settings and select Explicit and save them. The backup will be made automatically to the periods that you set on the Schedule tab.
Emulation allows the virtual drive integrated into the operating system, to be used as a network drive or a hard disk. You will also have an entirely online data storage medium that can be accessed through several devices.
NetDrive is free for home use. NetDrive will mount your FTP space as an hard drive.

Another possibility is to add the virtual drive to your operating system and then go to Computer or Workstation. Click on File and Add a network location. Follow the instructions by entering the connection settings indicated above. This connection method however will not enable you to edit your online files.
With synchronization, your data can be accessed even when you are offline. They are saved locally in your computer and remotely in your virtual drive. The synchronization software will make sure to update edited files when your bandwidth is less busy.
FTPbox is a software that enables synchronizing a specific folder over several computers via FTP. Your files are thus available, even when offline.
Download, install and run FTPbox.
The software will then ask you to designate a synchronizing folder.
Synchronizing will be done gradually.
