Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"There are two ways to get your files in eyeOS: manually upload
them or use eyeSync to synchronize with folders on your computer. A
caveat about eyeSync: their alpha version that's currently
available only does one-way synchronization. It uploads files on a
PC to eyeSync. eyeSync doesn't yet upload files or changes back to
the PC. If you're a python programmer, you might be able to help
with it's development.
"To access the manual upload utility, click the Upload your
files link on the menu that's on the desktop. Accessing it from
there will put the files into the main home directory. If you
rather upload directly to a particular folder, browse to it and hit
the Upload files button.
"You can upload using the Simple or Advanced method. You should
just use the Advanced method so you can select multiple files at
once, if desired. Select the Advanced tab (see Figure 1) and hit
the Add Files button. Then you can select a single file, or
multiple files by holding the Ctrl key, and click Open. Then hit
the Upload now! button."
